The TL50 andon tower light can be used to indicate changes in status at workstations, such as a need for parts replenishment or a request for managerial help. 

The light is locally operated to give operators complete control. Unlike other color-lensed tower lights, the TL50’s translucent grey segments show no color when off, eliminating false indication from ambient light. An omnidirectional audible alarm is available to alert workers to various conditions.

Preassembled to a control box for easy-to-see status, these three- or four-segment tower lights are rugged, easy to install, and simple to operate. The control box uses status LEDs to mimic the tower light status color and animation. This allows workers to see which status is showing without having to stop to look up at the tower light. To prevent confusion over button functionality, space is provided for custom labeling. Having an easy and quick way to see status helps reduce time troubleshooting issues while improving efficiency.

Unlike mechanical andon buttons that can fail after repeated use, the control box features capacitive touch buttons for built-in reliability. With capacitive touch, users can operate the control box with or without gloves. A tap of the button turns the corresponding status LED and tower light segment on or off. Additionally, operators can touch and hold the button for one second to activate the flashing function. For added flexibility, three, four, or five integral capacitive touch button configurations allow for customized function.

Featuring an entirely all-in-one design, the light can simply be connected to a local DC power supply or Banner PSW-24-1 into an existing outlet to get started. The TL50 Andon comes with three options for preassembled stand-off pipe lengths: 300, 600 or 900 millimeters.
