Hastings, MN – March 2018 – Onyx Industries introduces customizable Stack Lights with a rugged metal, industrial grade housing and very bright, long-life LEDs that function as safety awareness indicators. The indicators satisfy ANSI B11.19-2010 section 9.2 by quickly and effectively alerting machine operators and plant personnel to potential hazards such as: exposed pinch points, presence of high-power lasers, active heat zones, and other processes related to personal safety exposure.
Available in 1.5 inch/40mm to 2.57 inch/65mm diameter indicators, standard height lenses, and rugged stainless-steel housing, Onyx Stack Lights are ideal for machine builders and safety improvement initiatives. Options include backlit symbols for safety hazards and audible buzzers, as well as customization of finish and connectors.
The backlit text and symbol option enhances safety by more clearly communicating messages. For example, a Blue Indicator that incorporates the IEC Laser Symbol with text below reading “LASER ACTIVE” relays a message that is easily visible and understandable to anyone in the area – when illuminated, it’s clear that the laser is enabled and may be operating. The backlit text and symbol option is of particular importance due to the prevalence of color blindness (up to 10% in males for red/green).

- Bright, Long-Life Red/Yellow/Green/Blue/White LED Lights
- Rugged 304 Stainless-Steel housing, plated aluminum base
