Bright, High Quality Strip Light from Banner Engineering

Banner WLS27 Strip Light

April 21, 2020

         Banner Engineering WLS27 Strip Light

Banner Engineering is expanding its offering of the WLS27 Series Strip Light to include programmable models with RGBW LEDs for use in indication, illumination and inspection applications. These new models will be programmable with Banner’s Pro Editor software or IO-Link communication. 

The new WLS27 Pro comes in distinct IO-Link and discrete controlled Pro Editor compatible models. Banner’s Pro Editor software allows users to program device status, colors and animations for control via three discrete inputs. The application-based interface makes it easy to configure a light for a wide range of applications such as displaying machine warm-up time, indicating unique steps in an assembly process, showing distance and position information and communicating multiple machine states. Pro Editor models are discretely controlled and ideal for users who do not have IO-Link, but who want control and customization to communicate information visually.

The IO-Link models allow for dynamic control—reacting to inputs from other devices—and have additional modes that the discrete units don’t. IO-Link enables users to change device parameters from the control system as needed, such as during product changeover, which reduces downtime and allows machines to accommodate greater product diversity. These models can be divided in up to 10 segments for applications like assembly guidance or pick-to-light. They also offer unique LED color control to provide advanced users with total control.  The WLS27 Pro with IO-Link connects cleanly to IO-Link architecture and helps reduce costs, increase process efficiency, and improves machine availability.

Application include:

  • Bright white light for efficiency, quality and safety during normal operation
  • Standard diffusion window for full intensity and/or LED resolution
  • Provide operator guidance for assembly and manufacturing processes
  • Heavy diffuse window for smooth glow and close-range indication
  • Show time elapsed, level, temperature, position, angle or other “analog” type signals
  • Highlight available work zone status in robot cells
  • Provide operator guidance for assembly and manufacturing processes
  • Factory traffic status indication at intersections
  • High visibility indication for machine status and more
  • Human and machine vision inspection

 

  • Programmable models with RGBW LEDs for use in indication, illumination and inspection applications
  • Banner’s Pro Editor software allows users to program device status, colors and animations for control via three discrete outputs
  • IO-Link helps reduce costs, increase process efficiency, and impoves machine availability
  • Offers ilumination and multiple indication capabilities in a single device with EZ-STATUS
  • Use its bright light for illumination or colors for broad status information
  • Bright white light for efficiency, quality and safety during normal operation
  • Heavy diffuse window for smooth glow and close-range indication
  • Factory traffic status indication at intersections
  • High visibility indication for machine status and more
