RGB LED Signal Tower for Industrial Automation Reference Design

TIDA-00979

Design files

Overview

This reference design is a multi-segment RGB signal tower for industrial process automation. The reference design enables fully flexible control of color and brightness and allows easy modification of the amount of segments. With this smart process condition and safety indicator, any type of industrial stack light tower can be realized and configured via software.

Features
  • Flexible and easy-to-control RGB LED tower light design
  • Different configurable modes like stack light, level indication and flashlight
  • Controllable RGB color, brightness and blinking speed
  • 1-5-RGB LED segments, each with four individual channels
  • Adjustable maximum LED current up to 60-mA per channel

A fully assembled board has been developed for testing and performance validation only, and is not available for sale.
