Banner WLS27 LED Strip Lights For Harsh Environments

Banner's WLS27 LED Strip Light solves tough lighting problems in harsh environments. The sturdy internal aluminum structure, encased in shatterproof, UV-stabilized, polycarbonate shells makes the WLS27 rugged light fixture able to withstand exposure to high-pressure, high-temperature water, solvents, cutting oils, and a broad range of chemicals. Due to its compact, low-profile design and a cylindrical shape, it is ideal for deployments where laminar airflow is a requirement. The WLS27 Strip Light is available in a range of lengths and color illumination options, including single and dual color options, as well as dimmable models. The dual-color models include two colors in one light strip and contain twice the number of LEDs to keep the same intensity as single-color models.

Benefits of using a WLS27 LED Strip Light:
  • Bright, uniform light in a package that is designed for a variety of tough environments
  • High pressure water, hot water, solvents, cutting oils, and a variety of chemical compatibilities
  • Easy installation with a variety of mounting and cabling options
  • Energy effiicient
  • No special recycling requirements
  • Polycarbonate can be used without special guarding in food areas

Compact RFID Read/Write Head For Restricted Mounting

Turck has now released the TB-Q08, currently the smallest ISO15693 compliant RFID read/write head on the market with protection to IP67. The housing is able to integrate the antenna, electronics, and two LEDs visible from all directions, despite its compact dimensions of 32 x 20 x 80 mm. The LEDs indicate a functioning power supply as well as active read/write operations to the user.

The TB-Q08 has a compact rectangular design and 15cm long connection cable with an M12 connector, making it particularly suitable for use in restricted mounting conditions, such as small assembly and transport lines.

The TB-Q08 can fully play to its strengths in the identification of metal objects, when combined with Turck's new R10 and R12 tags. The new 10 and 12 mm diameter tags can be mounted directly in metal and are equipped with a chip, which supports password functions. In conjunction with Turck's BL ident RFID system, the user can implement simple brand protection, access protection and access rights management.
