Edwards Signaling 8/6/2018

MEDI: You’re in complete control from your desktop or laptop.

You control so much of your job from your computer - why not your signaling too? It’s easy with the Millennium Event Driver Interface (MEDI). Schedule signals for events as mundane as lunch, or deliver critical voice messages - all without leaving your desk.

The windows-based MEDI software package provides command and control of remote signaling devices throughout your facility. With a few simple clicks, you can program MEDI to automatically signal work start and stop times, break times, or any other timed event. You can also manually command MEDI to initiate tones, wav files, or real-time voice. Any time. It integrates with either conventional or RS485 signaling components.

MEDI installs fast and easy. From the very first moment, MEDI’s intuitive design will have you improving your signaling for tasks like automatically or manually sounding break times, shift start and stop times, special events, or real-time voice.
