Segmented strip lights for visual indication

August 2019 Sensors & Transducers

WLS27 segmented strip lights feature bright, low-maintenance LEDs and are available in several length and colour combinations:

• Green/red models (available in either 285 or 570 mm lengths).

• Green/yellow/red models (available in either 430 mm or 850 mm lengths).

The lights are available with either a diffuse or heavy diffuse window. The heavy diffuse option provides softer, more uniform light that is more comfortable for operators working in close proximity to the device.

Like a traditional tower light, each segment of WLS27 segmented models can represent a different status. For example, in factory applications, a green segment can indicate that a machine is running smoothly, while a red segment can indicate a critical condition that requires attention. The bright light output and long length of the strip light generate highly visible indication that can be easily identified from a distance or at an angle. This makes it an ideal alternative to industrial stoplights which have a more limited viewing angle.

Reliable performance in harsh environments

The rugged IP69K design provides reliable indication in a wide variety of conditions, including harsh outdoor environments. The sealed lights are constructed with sturdy aluminium frames in shatterproof polyester housings, making them resistant to wet environments, impact, and breakage. The housing also resists a variety of chemicals and cleaning agents for operation in a wider range of applications.

Cascadable models of the WLS27 segmented strip light can display the same status on multiple devices simultaneously, which makes it even easier to see status changes even if an operator is looking down or away. Cascading also simplifies installation, eliminates additional wiring, and only requires power on one side of the application.
