A signaling device is the electronic device that is capable of detecting flaws in the system and sending warning sign to mitigate the chances of accident. These devices are utilized in numerous applications and have found growing adoption in recent years. Signaling devices are an important aspect of any safety management system such as Dam Safety System, Earthquake Warning System, Fire alarm system and Defense warning systems and others. They have an important role of highlight the target about the change in parameters.
APAC was the largest market for signaling devices in 2017 followed by the Americas. The growth of signaling device market can be attributed to the growing focus on safety in industrial sector. Also, the flourishing E-Commerce sector is driving the growth of this market. The global market was estimated to be $ 1925 million in 2017 and it is expected that it will reach to $ 2391 million by 2023. The growth rate for the forecast period is expected to be 3.7%.
What are Signaling Devices?
Devices which are used to pass a signal intentionally from source to destination or raise an alarm that can be a sound or visual alarm depending on the type of device on the trigger from the control panel are considered as signaling devices. These devices are normally connected through the control panel. These devices are configured and positioned in the right places so that people can be aware of the intrusion easily and take corrective measures. Example of signaling devices are Hooters, Strobe lights etc. Signaling devices can be comprised of a variety of different styles, colors and shapes and are used for many different purposes. Signaling typically consists of lights combined with a variety of sound producing products.
What are the major applications for Signaling Devices?
Signal Devices are used in various locations which are different in terms of situations and terrains. They are used to signal the status of machinery, conveyors, and automated lines using different colors to show the status from a distance. Other uses are for visibility of emergency vehicles, smoke alarms, school buses, fire escape, snow plows, wreckers, slower moving construction vehicles, such as end loaders and graders, and are commonly used in conjunction with back-up alarms on fork trucks. Entrances and exits in loud environments use signal lights as a way to warn of hazardous environments and dangerous areas. The lights are designed for indoor and indoor/outdoor use. Applications and other aspects of a signaling system need to be considered when purchasing signaling lights. Different applications may call for different bulb types, voltage and colors as well as how the light is going to be mounted. Besides visual devices audible alarms are also implemented for similar purposes.
