NMW 2005: Patlite’s PC controller manages up to eight devices

Chicago, IL—Patlite (USA) Corp. (Booth #4836) reports that its PHC-100A switchbox allows a personal computer to control up to eight devices for many applications.


Chicago, IL— Patlite (USA) Corp. (Booth #4836) reports that its PHC-100A switchbox allows a personal computer to control up to eight devices for many applications, including radio frequency identification (RFID), indicating process status, or supervising PCs, servers, and/or workstations. As a result, PHC-100A can be used for inventory control, 911 emergency call centers, or by any other PC-controlled system.

The switchbox also can control most of Patlite’s products visually and audibly through isolated contact outputs, which the company is exhibiting at National Manufacturing Week 2005, March 7-10 at McCormick Place. The firm adds that PHC-100A is easy to program; has a reset switch; and is 24 V dc with an ac adapter.

LED signal tower
Patlite is also exhibiting its PHE-3FB signal tower, which is controlled through the user’s personal computer. This enables a range of applications, such as RFID, indicating the status of a process, or supervising a PC, server, and/or workstation.

The light has continuous and flashing options using Patlite’s patented LED lights. For audible alerts, it has two selectable, single-tone intermittent alarms with adjustable volume to 85dB at 1 meter. Easy to program and equipped with a reset switch, PHE is 24 V dc with an ac adapter.
