Turck is expanding its of portfolio of LED lights with the robust LED indicators of the K100 series. The 100 mm beacons developed by Turck's partner Banner Engineering are available in two configurations.
Different lens options available
The Pro Daylight Visible beacon model offers 12 audible options and has a clear lens that avoids false indications, even in sunlight. It offers bright indication in both indoor and outdoor environments. The model’s clear lens provides distinct indication, even in sunlight, avoiding false indications. It features three color options (green, yellow, and red) for status indication, operator guidance, and other functions.
The K100 Pro Indicator model has a diffused lens that appears white when inactive, thereby preventing false indication. It features 14 color options that can be used for status and indication applications. Animations include options such as flash, intensity sweep, and wave. Both beacon models can include an optional audible alarm and have an IP66 environmental rating for dust, rain, and snow.
PC-based interface and software
The beacon series is discretely controlled and ideal for users who do not have IO-Link but want control and customization capabilities to communicate information visually. Banner’s proprietary Pro Editor software enables users to program device status, colors, and animations. The PC-based interface makes it easy to configure a beacon for a range of applications, such as displaying machine warm-up time, indicating unique steps in an assembly process and communicating multiple machine states.
