856T Control Tower Stack Lights Essential Guide

Allen-Bradley's 856T Control Tower Stack Light system gives users maximum flexibility in meeting the widest range of applications with a reduced number of components. This system uses a modular design that incorporates brighter LED illumination and a broad offering of sound technologies. All signals in the system operate on 24V AC/DC, powered by 24V AC/DC or 120/240V AC power modules.
