Seven-colour indicator lights
November 2017, Operator Interfaces, Switches & Relays
Banner Engineering has announced the release of K30L2 and K50L2 seven-colour indicator lights for use in any application requiring high-visibility status indication. The new indicators utilise RGB LED technology to support seven colours in a single indicator using just three inputs. Colours include red, green, blue, yellow, cyan, magenta and white. This versatility makes it possible to standardise on a single model of indicator, reducing replacement stock requirements and simplifying ordering.
Designed to provide clear, unambiguous indication of status, K30L2 and K50L2 indicators shine bold and bright for easy visual management. An optional audible alarm available on K50L2 models provides a distinct, loud notification of a change in status.
Protected by a rugged IP66, IP67, and IP69K polycarbonate housing, the indicators are designed to withstand impact and washdown, ensuring reliable performance in challenging environments. Models constructed from FDA-grade materials are available for use in food and beverage applications.
These second-generation indicators are based on the industry-proven first generation of K30 and K50 series LED indicators. They offer similarly low levels of power consumption and require little or no maintenance over a long operational life. In addition, they have a clear, uncomplicated wiring plan that enables quick installation and allows users to consolidate controller outputs.
K50L2 indicators are also available in models with IO-Link communication, which enables full control of colour, flashing, dimming, and advanced animations like rotation, strobing, 2-colour display, 2-colour rotation, 2-colour flashing, and chase.
