Pfannenberg has unveiled the BR50 Series Stacklight™, a visual indicators of a machine’s status for industrial machinery operatives which it claimms as the brightest on the market, outshining its own legacy range of stack light LEDs by 10,000 per cent.
The solution features an online configuration tool that makes it easier to design a simple stack light, and obtain the manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) together with a bill of materials.
According to Pfannenberg,the BR50 Series brings significantly improved safety and productivity by increasing levels of ambient light in manufacturing and industrial facilities – regardless of whether lights are installed in cabinets, machinery frames, or junction boxes.
Multiple models forming part of the series are available with a variety of mounting options, including direct-to-base, tube-and-bracket, and tube-and-stand (plinth).
Exponentially brighter LEDs offer higher visibility and a slim design (ø 54 mm). The BR50 LED’s heightened luminosity is further amplified by the internal prisms’ impact-proof, heat-resistant, and dust-proof polycarbonate lens, which is easily identified from all sides.
BR50 Stacklight’s easy-to-assemble component architecture supports up to five interchangeable modules. They are available in several custom configurations, with up to five color segments independently actuated and a sound module that provides a distinctive audible warning for sensitive applications. Users can select from BR50 LEDs for continuous or blinking operation, as well as high-visibility flashing xenon tubes. The BR50 Stacklights also offer easy integration into an AS-Interface bus system.
Pfannenberg’s new stacklight configurator takes the guesswork out of determining the specific part numbers for an application. With the pre-configured part number option, users can select a specific voltage and color combination, and the stacklight comes pre-assembled in the box, offering plug and play signaling with one part number. The “build your own” option lets users create a custom design with a wide range of options for voltage, mounting style, color combination/sequence, IP rating, safety and network capability, and signaling modes.
“BR50 Stacklights will have an immediate and practical impact on evolving customer challenges,” explains Jacob Vernon, Pfannenberg’s Signaling Product Manager. “As ambient light levels rise on manufacturing floors around the globe, we have focused on developing new configurations of our alarm and signaling devices to better protect people and processes.”
