Cleansign surface-mount LED signal tower
Werma’s EHEDG-approved Cleansign LED signal tower is designed especially for use in cleanrooms, hygienic areas and the food industry. The company has recently introduced a surface-mount option, which can be installed on any surface.
In the food and drink industry, as well as the chemical and pharmaceutical industry, or during the manufacture of electronic components, high demands are placed on hygiene. This applies to both employees as well as the machinery, equipment and accessories used.
The Cleansign signal tower has obtained the highest air purity classification of two and can therefore be used safely in many applications including component manufacture, microelectronics, medical, research, pharmaceutical, optical, laser and aerospace.

Key features and benefits
- The compact design of Cleansign has no flat horizontal surface, grooves or joints where contamination could build up and therefore contamination risks are substantially reduced.
- An EHEDG requirement calling for 30° angled surfaces has been rigorously imposed on the design, allowing for optimised flow of fluid, easier cleaning and better visibility of the signal tower.
- Cleansign’s design reduces cleaning time considerably and will not use so much cleansing agents or energy to complete the job.
- The polyamide housing of Cleansign is approved by the Food and Drug Administration, is compatible with foodstuffs and is resistant to cleansing and disinfecting agents.
- The housing and fixing bracket are one piece — the absence of joints further helps to prevent the build-up of contamination.
- The very bright Cleansign uses the latest in LED light technology, giving a life typically of up to 50,000 hours.
- An integral loud sounder emphasises the signalling effect to people out of sight of the signal tower.
- Different light effects are possible with the RGB, RGY LED variants, for example different colours and grading of colours.
The new 153 series sounder from Werma is a square-shaped signal device designed to emit a warning in up to eight different tones.
Werma has introduced the Andonbox and Andonswitch products from Andon, which are designed to help make manual workstations more ‘lean’. Andonbox is a simple yet robust industrial switch box. Up to four different status conditions can be actuated by the pushbutton switch box. The pushbuttons can be colour coded and there is room for individual labels to be applied to ensure accurate calls for action.
The Wireless Information Network (WIN) from Werma is a wireless-based workshop and machine efficiency monitoring system for lean production management and process improvement teams.
The Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC urges machine builders to undertake a thorough safety analysis of the systems that monitor and control the operation of their machines. While the ‘dos’ and ‘don’ts’ are well defined in the directive for many aspects of machine safety, guidelines for the provision of visual and audible warning indicators are more vague; there is ‘guidance’ but little in the way of ‘you must…’.
Werma has introduced the 816 multi-colour LED installation beacon. Using RGB LED technology, the 816 LED beacon offers seven colours: red, green, amber, blue, clear, violet and turquoise. This enables many different conditions to be alerted from a single beacon, saving users valuable space and installation work.
