Bright, versatile illumination

November 2019 Sensors & Transducers

The bright, uniform output of the WLB72 reduces shadows, improves visibility and gives workers the light they need to work efficiently and without making mistakes. A diffuse window minimises eye strain and eliminates hotspots, and translucent endcaps enable users to create a continuous line of light for a more seamless aesthetic. With 0-10 V dimming, users can personalise light levels to their preferred brightness.

Energy efficient, cost-effective design

The WLB72 basic strip light is an energy efficient device with an output of 130 lumens per watt. Like all Banner lights, the WLB72 Basic features a low total cost of ownership (TCO) and provides years of reliable, maintenance-free operation, with no bulb or ballast changes required throughout the entire lifespan of the device.

Quick, easy installation

WLB72 strip lights seamlessly replace bulky fluorescent lights and easily install into existing infrastructure. The bright light output allows users to install fewer lights in total, reducing installation time and costs. All models are cascadable, simplifying installation and wiring for additional ease of use. Integral mounting options and add-on brackets (sold separately) meet a wide variety of application requirements.

Compatible with backup batteries for emergency lighting

Each WLB72 work light is compatible with a backup battery (sold separately) for emergency lighting during power outages.


WLB72 strip lights are ideal for industries that require uniform illumination, such as automotive, material handling and general manufacturing. These bright lights improve safety, productivity and quality in a wide variety of applications including:

• Assembly line illumination.

• Inspection lighting.

• Workstation and robot work cell illumination.
