I have about 7 Mazak machines I would like to add the stack lights to my machines. I have various controls, anyone go any ideas on what voltage the machines put out and where I can tie into them, and possible terminal labels for them?
These are the red, green, and amber or yellow lights that tell you the machine status from across the room so you can know if the machine is in cycle, the machine has ended cycle and needs a new part, or is in alarm. Mazak service called it a PATO light system.
Old ones were 12 volt bulbs. Base of the stack had a transformer in it. 120 ac in 12vdc out. New style are led light stacks. pretty neat. Probably pretty pricey from Mazak. Google "Patlite" and procede from there. Mazak electric drawings usually show the patlite circuits. Pretty simple setup.
