We can make stand-alone andon displays or can include them in more complex displays along with large digit numeric displays or text displays, with sounders, email and SMS notification.
Most of our andon systems are custom-made to suit users specific needs
An andon is literally a beacon - in its simplest form it can be a single LED which can be lit to indicate the state of something in your process.
More often, several andon indicators are combined, and are usually made with clusters of LEDs so that they can be clearly seen from a long distance.
An LCD screen with custom andon code allows maximum flexibility of format, colours, text inclusion etc.
See an online example here. View on your PC and press F11 key to maximise.
You can control this screen with your mobile phone. Open this page on your phone.
We can log andon activity in a web database, so that you can see real-time statistical reports of when, for how long, where and who pushed the button.
This can form part of a powerful downtime-analysis system, which can match your process and give valuable returns on investment very quickly.
We can also add grahics to the display, to show exactly where on your plant an active andon is being triggered form...
Andons can be activated with pushbuttons or iPad / android tablets, via USB or from PLC inputs - the possibilities are limited by imagination only.
