The Edwards Triliptical Stackable Status Indicator is a unique
audible-visual signaling device that can contain up to 5 light modules and a
pulsating horn in a single stack. All modules are gasketed. The
Triliptical Stackable Status Indicator bases are available in three models.
A shorter base for conduit or surface mounting or a larger base designed for
use with an optional tone module assembly. The larger base is also available
with an optional DeviceNet interface.
The Triliptical diffusion optic lens allows viewing from close up while
still projecting the light through use of a built-in projection ring. The
lenses are available in six colors: red, amber/orange, yellow, blue, green,
and clear. Each light source module contains a removable cover to allow for
easy relamping. The light module cover features a molded-in gasket for dust
tight reliability. Double optics and the triliptical design provides an
increased viewing area without increasing the base diameter. The lens
modules can be easily stacked together utilizing an internal retaining
assembly. Two tone modules are available. A single tone module and a tone
selectable tone module - one tone selectable from eight available tones.
Provides up to 85 dB at 5 feet. The multi-tone module is also available with
an optional DeviceNet interface that allows all eight tones to be controlled
over a DeviceNet network.
Surface or 3/4" (19mm) NPT conduit pipe mounting in non-hazardous dust and
weatherproof applications. For indoor applications, may be vertically
mounted with lenses facing up or down. For weatherproof installation, it is
recommended that the unit be conduit mounted vertically with lenses facing
The Triliptical DeviceNet Stackable Beacon is a slave device. It is a
general purpose status indicator designed to indicate the status of a
machine or process. The unit contains a preprogrammed microcontroller which
implements the Group 2 predefined Master/Slave Connection Set. This allows
for one Explicit Messaging Connection and one Poll Connection. The Stackable
Beacon resets automatically when DeviceNet power is applied.
The DeviceNet interface is in the Triliptical DeviceNet Base, 102TBS-DN,
which interfaces between the DeviceNet network and all installed stacklight
modules. The unisolated physical layer contains DeviceNet required mis-wiring
protection circuitry. A standard open style (unsealed) 5 pin connector is
used to connect the Stackable Beacon to the DeviceNet bus. The current draw
from the bus is 0.12A. The power required to drive the lamps is supplied
separately from the bus power for the 120V AC (N5) version. DC power for the
24V DC (G1) version may be taken locally or from the DeviceNet Network. A
standard open style 2 pin connector is used to connect 24V DC @ 1.6A or 120V
AC at 0.6A to drive the 5 light sources.
The DeviceNet compatible unit provides for complete light source
diagnostics. Each light source: LED, strobe, halogen or incandescent is
continuously monitored for operability. An inoperable or missing light
source is reported on the DeviceNet network.
