MINNEAPOLIS — December 20, 2011 — Attention-getting equipment status signals in industrial environments are paramount to overall factory productivity. With manufacturing efficiency in mind, Banner Engineering Corp. introduces the new EZ-LIGHT TL50 Beacon Tower Light — a hybrid of Banner's popular TL50 Tower and K50 Beacon lights &mdash to its existing line of lighting and indicators. Like other models of the TL50, the new Beacon Tower is segmented and may be ordered with 1-4 different colored LED lights, thereby allowing several messages to be conveyed at once. The new TL50 also features the ability to have any of the segments flash or rotate their extremely bright signals in addition to displaying a solid ON indication.
"We see tower lights as an important solution for so many industrial applications, and our new TL50 is one of the most versatile indicator lights we've developed," said Chuck Dolezalek, a Product Development Manager at Banner Engineering. "Not only does it work for both indoor and outdoor applications because of its brightness, but we also have audible models, which opens the door to the number of applications it can be used in even wider."
The extremely bright output of the LED beacons provides easy-to-see indication from all directions when multiple lights may need to be ON simultaneously. As a result, operators have the ability to adequately monitor equipment status from a distance. Audible models that have easily adjustable sound intensity are also available, as are a number of bracketing options to greatly enhance its functionality and placement options. Furthermore, the TL50 Beacon Tower has a wide 12-30V dc operating range, which enables it to be used in battery-powered mobile applications.
All of Banner's EZ-LIGHT Tower Lights come completely preassembled and preconfigured, thus saving time and money during the installation process. LED technology helps reduce power consumption, making them an energy-efficient solution as well. Both the general purpose and audible models of the TL50 Beacon Tower use Euro integral quick disconnect (QD) connectors, while the robust design of the indicator allows for direct machine mounting.
