Signal lights for inland navigation

Inland lock with signal lights  

LED signal lights from Phoenix Contact are economical and particularly robust

The LED signal lights for inland navigation are designed for use on light signal and lock systems. The use of autonomous monitoring functions guarantees high availability of the signaling equipment.

The particular advantage of the signal light is the integrated fieldbus communication. The light can be accessed via a modular controller, e.g. to control the light intensity of the LEDs or to define the behavior in the event of connection abort. The light can be connected to the control center for the lock via a PROFINET network, where users can then access a wide range of diagnostic and status information.

Only components that conform to the industry standard are used for the monitoring functions of the signal lights.

Signal lights for maritime navigation

Large maritime lock with signal lights  

Signal lights for large maritime locks are subject to high demands regarding availability

For large marine locks, the availability of the signaling systems is top priority. The signal lights for marine navigation take this customer requirement into consideration through the consistent implementation of redundancy, both for the power supply and for the communication bus.

The particularly robust salt-water-resistant housing and the heavy-duty connection technology are designed for use in challenging environments.

The industrial communication bus can be used to read all alarm and status messages with time stamp and send them to control systems and databases. Industrial communication standards are available for this, which allow integral automation solutions to be easily set up.

Comprehensive automation

The signal lights from Phoenix Contact are an integral part of the overall solution and make status information and alarm messages available across the entire network.

The signaling systems from Phoenix Contact support common industrial communication interfaces. They can be easily integrated into existing solutions and higher-level automation concepts by means of bus systems and discrete interfaces.

Phoenix Contact offers corresponding products that also allow you to implement complex demands individually – from controller ranges and bus interfaces, remote control technology, and surge protection to the safety concept which takes the requirements of the Machinery Directive into consideration.
