Applications of indicator lamps and lights
Indicator lights have applications in a wide range of industrial and non-industrial sectors. They are used in ships, machine equipment, tools, power distribution and switch cabinets, food processing equipment, and so on. They have extensive applications in household devices as well, for example in cooking, washing, and other small appliances. The commercial sector has uses for indicator lights and lamps also, for instance in professional coffee machines or commercial ovens. Other common applications of indicator lights and lamps include in the HVAC sector, medical equipment, automotive, marine and aerospace industries, and lighting technology.
Importance of indicator lamps and lights
Indicator lights and lamps are extremely important not only because they can convey the working status of equipment but also because of their extensive advantages. Industrial grade indicator lights and lamps are easy to install, durable, and can be optimised as per needs. Not only that, they can tolerate excessive vibrations and harsher industrial environments.
