Banner WLS28-2: Doing More With Dual Colors

The Banner WLS28-2 Dual-Color LED Light Strips target a wide range of applications in which more than one color is required.

Having two colors in one device makes the Banner WLS28-2 ideal for applications such as mobile vehicle illumination, where red light makes it easier for the operator’s eyes to transition to dark areas at night. Another example is machine status indication, where alternating colors illuminate equipment during an error condition.


  • Low profile, space saving design
  • Densely spaced LEDs help provide enhanced light quality
  • Three-position switch (optional) allows for manual color selection
  • Rugged, water resistant models (IP69K) available
  • Internal temperature control protects against extreme conditions
  • Cascade the Banner WLS28-2 to minimize wiring

See the image below for all of the members of the Banner WLS28-2 family.

Expand Your Efforts in Safety with the Banner XS26

Building on the success of Banner’s most recent Safety Controller,

Introducing the Banner XS26  EXPANDABLE Safety Controller!

The next level of machine control just became more flexible by allowing expansion modules to increase the I/O count to handle larger and more complex machine safety applications.

  • Monitors a variety of input devices such as e-stop buttons, rope pulls, enabling devices, protective safety stops, interlocked guards or gates, optical sensors, two-hand controls and safety mats
  • Boolean logic functions for programming flexibility
  • Intuitive programming environment for easy implementation
  • Pre-configured safety function blocks including two-hand control, muting and enabling device to simplify application programming
  • Base Controller allows 8 of the 26 inputs to be configured as outputs for efficient terminal use
  • Expandable IO 
  • FREE SOFTWARE DOWNLOAD allows programming of both the stand alone and the expandable version of the safety controller

Driven to Succeed: The Siemens SINAMICS V20

The heart of any manufacturing process nests basic operations like pumping, moving, ventilating and processing, that help a product come into fruition. The Siemens SINAMICS V20 is a simple drive solution that automates those simple motion sequences, while simultaneously providing user benefits, such as:

Ease of Installation
  • Push through or panel mounting
  • Side by side mounting without space between
Ease of Use
  • Parameter loading without power on the drive
  • Built-in application macros
  • Keeps running through power dips

Cost Efficiency
  • ECO mode motor flux reduction
  • Hibernation mode

The SINAMICS V20 can also be individually adapted to a particular application or user requirement using various options - for example, an external BOP, connecting cable, filter, braking resistors, shielding are all available.

Control Your Climate with Banner SureCross

The Banner SureCross® industrial radio devices provide reliable wireless environmental measurements without the need for costly wiring. Users can choose between star (-P6 Performance) or tree (-H6 MultiHop) RF topologies, enabling flexible deployments and maximum coverage. The Banner SureCross® Temperature and Humidity Solution can be built on either the Performance platform or the Modbus MultiHop platform.

Supplementary, 900MHz frequency versions allow for 1 watt RF power output and maximum signal integrity used in-facility. Both the SureCross -P6 and -H6 feature a single internal D-cell lithium battery which is easily replaceable and provides up to 5 years of life. Each radio features multiple configuration options and an  LCD display for user feedback and troubleshooting. When combined with the M12FTH4Q temperature/relative humidity sensor or the M12FT4Q temperature sensor, the Banner SureCross P6 & H6 can offer unprecedented flexibility, reliability and power management in an industrial environmental monitoring solution.

Features & Benefits

  • Achieves humidity accuracy of ± 2% relative humidity and temperature accuracy of ± 0.3 ÂșC 
  • Temperature and relative humidity sensing elements housed in a robust stainless steel probe 
  • Traceable to NIST standards  
  • Reduces labor costs by obviating manual checks and eliminating error 
  • Achieves superior battery life while providing near real-time data 
  • Allows flexibility to select radios (-P6 or -H6) to fit either star or tree RF network topology
