Machine Illumination for Assistance with Inspection and Testing Procedures
Laboratory machinery needs bright, even lighting to improve inspections and maintain high-quality control. However, traditional lights may be damaged by the corrosive and messy chemicals used inside the machines. Lighting devices are needed that can withstand the harsh environment of labs and still provide even illumination that improves the inspection processes.
Proper machine illumination has many advantages in automated processes and can be used in a variety of ways. Sufficient lighting is especially important inside laboratory machines but can be difficult due to the high demands of the clinical testing environment where things are exposed to chemicals. Fortunately, Banner Engineering has versatile LED lighting that can withstand the harsh environments found in laboratory machines.
Illuminating inside automated sample processing equipment makes it easier for an operator to access the samples and equipment inside the machine. Shatterproof lighting is better suited to this environment because it prevents glass from contaminating samples or damaging machinery. Banner Engineering’s WLS27 Series strip light is fully enclosed in a shatterproof copolyester shell and the sturdy housing withstands hard impact.
The copolyester housing is chemically resistant and the WLS27 lights are rated IP66, IP67, and IP69K which makes them resistant to chemicals and high-pressure washdowns. This works very well in medical labs because it makes them easy to clean and holds up well against various chemicals that may be used during cleaning and testing procedures, ensuring high-quality performance even if the strip lights come into contact with harsh chemicals.
The different reagents and samples used in medical lab testing can be photosensitive to specific light wavelengths, resulting in damage to the product and samples. The WLS27 is available with color options that have narrow wavelengths to prevent damaging the chemicals used during testing and can also be purchased with EZ-STATUS® capabilities for combined illumination and indication in one device.
Fully encased in shatterproof, chemically resistant housing. Rated IP69K for washdown. Multiple color options combine illumination and indication.
