Signal lights for automating waterways

Overview

Lock with signal system  

Lighting solutions for waterways

  • Installation companies and operators of signaling systems for waterways are faced with the challenge of guaranteeing non-stop operation.
  • Phoenix Contact offers coordinated systems for the most diverse range of signaling tasks.
  • The salt-water-proof signal lights can be seamlessly integrated into existing networks and the automation environment.

Application

Signal system  

Signal system for shipping traffic

Signaling systems installed at various locations ensure safe and reliable operation when it comes to controlling the traffic on waterways. Signaling takes place, for example, on inland waterways, port entrances, passing places, narrow passageways with one-way traffic control or locks. The systems are part of an often very complex automation environment.

In addition to quick and easy installation, reliable operation and maximum availability of the signaling equipment is decisive. The operating behavior must be traceable at all times in order to ensure both optimum maintenance and evidence preservation.

Solution

Maritime signal lights  

Seamless integration into the automation environment

Phoenix Contact offers products and systems for the consistent automation of signaling systems on waterways. These range from the individual LED lights to complete solutions.

The lights are connected to the network and controlled via a bus interface. Condition Monitoring is incorporated into the control project in order to obtain feedback from the lights. This involves a real-time comparison of the target and actual state of the system, for example. An evaluation of the diagnostic and status messages of all connected lights is also integrated into the control project.

Whether it's for the simple connection of signaling systems or for complex control systems, Phoenix Contact has the right solution, including all components – from the power supply with integrated surge protection to the field level, control technology, and network infrastructure, right through to the control level.

Thanks to its many years of experience with users and the relevant associations and institutions, the company is also able to develop tailored functions for the lights.
