Application Notes for the Wireless Q45 Sensors

Using Wireless Q45 Sensors to Call for Parts. Production operators needed a way to easily call the forklift drivers to deliver additional parts or to remove completed assemblies from the work stations. Because the production area is frequently reconfigured when production requirements change, a wired system would require time-consuming rewiring with every reconfiguration.

Monitoring Door Switches Using Wireless Q45 Sensors. A major supplier of bulk food ingredients has recently been asked by its customer to verify the building is secure at all times. To achieve this, multiple door and window access points throughout the plant need to be constantly monitored.

Increasing Production Efficiency with the Wireless Q45 Sensors. Using Wireless Q45 Sensors and EZ-LIGHTs, the customer created a notification system. Each production area has one switch box and one tower light connected to the input on a Wireless Q45 Sensor with dry contact inputs. When a manager or technician is needed on the production line, an employee flips a switch.
