LED installation beacon is available in seven colours
Available in a choice of seven colours, the LED installation beacon 240 Multicolour has UL approval and is rated IP69K, the highest protection rating, said Werma Signaltechnik.
The compact LED installation beacon also has UL approval required for the USA. Colour options are red, yellow, green, white, blue, purple and turquoise. The UL certification enables it to be used worldwide, conforming to the safety regulations of the USA and Canada.
The IP69K standard is the highest protection class for electrical equipment, guaranteeing protection against solid objects, liquids, steam and dust. Water penetration is not possible, even at short distances, very high pressure, and high temperatures, ensuring it can be used with high-pressure systems.
Typical application examples are the mobile machinery, food processing, pharmaceutical and petrochemical industries, where all equipment must meet washdown requirements and be regularly exposed to high-pressure water jets.
The LED installation beacon 240 Multicolour combines a large, bright and attention-grabbing illuminated surface with excellent visibility and robustness. It has a diameter of 55mm and rises just 46mm above the surface when installed, making it suitable for use where installation space is limited.
The seven colours allow it to be used in a variety of ways. For example to signal malfunctions or statuses at the control console of a machine, in the machine housing or on control cabinets. The compact size means it is suitable for automation applications.
The LEDs signal is clearly visible from all angles, said Werma, yet thanks to the frosted dome, the light effect is pleasant and homogenous. The efficient installation beacon needs only 40 to 130mA, depending on the variant.
The beacon can also be supplied in combination with a buzzer which emits a 3,400Hz pulse tone signal with a volume of 85dB.
The M30 installation size means the signal device can be easily mounted. Bit-encoded controlling allows the three basic colours green, yellow and red to be displayed using just two PLC outputs. With additional outputs, blue, turquoise, violet and white can also be activated.
The beacon has a long service life of up to 50,000 hours, added Werma.
