In 2007, Onyx Industries began to design upgrades to Industrial Signal Systems original LiteStix brand Indicator Light Towers. The goals were clear - make indicator products that are:

  1. Engineered for Heavy Industrial Use
  2. Designed to enhance machine aesthetic appearance
  3. Have a Flexible Product Concept that meets specific customer needs without adding burden to the customer

Nothing lends itself better to meeting those goals than metal. So we put "metal where metal belongs" on all of our indicator light products.

Why metal?

  - Duribility. Indicator lights need to stand up to potentially harsh industrial environments
  - Appearance. Finished metal adds to a machine's aesthetic design.
  - Customization. Metal housings allow modification with established machining processes. This provides an adaptable means to meet specific customer requirements.

Our "start from scratch" design has resulted in Onyx Industries first two patents (in process). It's also brought at least four "industry firsts" to market, including:

  1. Backlit text/symbols in the lens for better messaging
  2. Illuminated buzzer cap
  3. Nameplate marking (without adhesive labels) that is permanent and can be easily adapted to customer-specific graphics
  4. Completely new, different LED/optics that are efficient, reliable and extremely bright. This eliminates incandescent or LED "bulbs".

Onyx Industries is located in Hastings, Minnesota USA, where we manufacture all of our products. A significant part of our business includes PLC and Motion Controller based machine controls integration and our experience in this area directly influences our indicator light tower product designs. The Command Tower was released officially in 2012 and we are excited to grow our dynamic product offering going forward. Please visit our distributors or contact us to discuss your applications. Thank you for your time and consideration.
