Wireless Inputs and Outputs

Wireless PLCThe RC-IO  Wireless Transmitter is the perfect way to quickly and easily integrate an RC-SL60 stack light into a PLC system or to control your own devices wirelessly. 

This Wireless module can be used to control any of the wireless status lights made by Stack-Light.com. The RC-IO can control 5 color lights as well as a buzzer. These are often used on existing machinery that needs to control a light remotely from the machine. For instance, you could have a CNC machine with a stack light on the machine and another light located in a maintenance or manager's office. If the Andon light on the CNC machine goes on, the light in the other room will turn on. 

The RC-IO was originally designed to control Our lights. But is useful in controlling other devices. The wireless unit has built-in relays that are rated for 40mA. For more powerful devices the RC-IO device can power a relay to isolate power. 

The normal range for wireless products is 100-125 feet. This range can be affected by walls and other obstacles. To extend the range Stack-Light.com uses a Mesh system. This means that the messaging can be passed between devices to extend the range. All of the Stack-Light Wireless products can act as a repeater except for the battery-powered Andon controller.  The Mesh system not only extends the range but also makes the Wireless Andon System more robust. 

Wireless Andon Mesh

The Mesh Network works independently of a facility's Wi-fi. This makes it easy to install this system without the need to involve the IT department.  We will work with you to design a system that is perfect for your application. The Wireless system will be programmed for you at our facility so that it is plug-and-play out of the box. The system can be reprogrammed in the future.  We are here to provide support if needed.

Stack-Light.com is committed to delivering new and exciting products to our customers.  These Wireless Transmitters have been used for devices other than lights. If you have a unique application this may be the perfect solution. We have had customers request a way to control their Andons wirelessly through a PLC or dry contact switches. The RC-IO unit is our answer to that request.
