The light towers are widely used in production departments: they perform an essential function of light and sound signalling to the operators of machines and lines.
With WD-Z2 and WD-PRO the same signals can be collected in order to concentrate them on monitors to help the same operators and to create useful histories for efficiency and time and cost analysis. Such data are often only available in much more expensive systems.
