K70 K50 K30 Touch Lit

Minneapolis, MN—March 15, 2016—Banner Engineering introduces its next-generation touch buttons for its industry-recognized K30, K50 and K70 multicolor indicators and pick-to-light sensors. Employing smart electric field sensing, the next-generation touch buttons provide superior immunity to false triggering caused by the buildup of detergents, oils and other foreign materials, as well as exposure to direct water spray.

The K70 is a brand new addition to Banner’s multicolor and pick-to-light sensor family. Featuring a 70 mm touch dome with a 30 mm base, the K70 touch is optimal for larger industrial applications in addition to jobs that require more visibility. The K70 is available in nine color options and one-, two- and three-color models for flexible performance. 

The next-generation K30 and K50 offer flexible communication and simplified setup of a single device or multi-point applications. The K50 is available in one-, two- and three-color models, while the K30 is available in one- and two-color models. New FDA models are also available, which are constructed from FDA-grade material and fully encapsulated for use in food and beverage applications.

“Our next-generation touch buttons are designed to provide optimal indication and lighting with excellent immunity to false triggering and superior electrical noise immunity,” said Matt Hahn, Technical Marketing Engineer for Lighting, Banner Engineering. “We believe these touch button solutions will be ideal for our customer’s pick-to-light, call button and general industrial applications.”

In addition to exceptional immunity, next-generation K30, K50 and K70 indicators are ergonomically designed to eliminate hand, wrist and arm stresses associated with repeated switch operation, requiring no physical force to operate. The indicators can also be easily actuated with bare hands or in gloves.

The next-generation touch buttons offer momentary or latching versions. Momentary configurations remain activated as long as touch is present, while latching models start up inactive and toggle between activated and not activated on successive touches.

All models feature rugged, fully encapsulated IP67/IP69K construction for optimal performance in high-pressure wash-down environments.
