MICROMAX ANNOUNCES BANNER EZ-LIGHT™ AUDIBLE AND SEGMENTED INDICATOR LIGHTS, FEATURING SOUND OR SPLIT-SCREEN DISPLAY TO CLEARLY CONVEY EQUIPMENT STATUS
Wollongong, Unanderra, N S W—October 14, 2008—Micromax Sensors & Automation introduces Banner Engineering's EZ-LIGHT™ Audible and Segmented Indicator Lights for operator guidance and indication of equipment status. Rugged EZ-LIGHT Audible and Segmented Indicators feature multi-colored, long-lasting LEDs, deliver a convenient solution for displaying the status of remote and inaccessible sensors and minimize the need for costly and inconvenient bulb replacements. Models consist of a single compact and unobtrusive unit that can replace cumbersome post and stack lights. Additionally, EZ-LIGHT Audible and Segmented Indicators are available in multiple low-profile design options for easy installation and are compatible with PLC or other logic-level control outputs.
EZ-LIGHT™ Audible Indicators use steady or pulsed
tones in addition to visual indication to communicate
urgent messages to the machine operator.

EZ-LIGHT™ Segmented Indicators can
communicate 4 or more different messages in a
single device—allowing operators to monitor
multiple processes from a single location.

For applications where sound indication is beneficial, EZ-LIGHT Audible Indicators offer two decibel levels with steady or pulsed tones. In addition, Audible Indicators provide standard Green/Red/Yellow lights and are available in two convenient, robust housing styles.
EZ-LIGHT Segmented Indicators provide a one-, two-, three- or four-color display with individual segments lighted separately or in combination to display multiple status configurations simultaneously. These multi-color, point-of-use indicators offer transmission of non-lingual messages to an operator or to monitor multiple locations and allow operator guidance, even for those with limited color recognition ability. Plus, optional labels are available for enhanced segment identification.
“EZ-LIGHT Audible and Segmented Indicators simply and clearly convey equipment status in previously challenging, remote or hard-to-access applications,” said Joe Dolinsky, Product Manager, Solid State Indicators and Pick-to-Light Sensors at Banner. “Like all EZ-LIGHT models, these lights are completely self-contained and are a neutral gray color when they are off, preventing ambient light from simulating an active light.”
Audible Indicators are rated IP50 and are available in K50L or K80L housing options; Segmented Indicators are rated IP67 and feature a robust K80L housing. Both EZ-LIGHT Audible and Segmented Indicators deliver PNP (sourcing) or NPN (sinking) input types and feature Euro-style quick-disconnects, various cable options and wiring chambers, depending on model.
Applications. Despite using very little power, EZ-LIGHT Audibleand Segmented Indicators provide a highly visible, simple solution for a widevariety ofmanufacturingand inspection sensing applications, including:
- Operator guidance
- Monitoring industrial plant machinery
- Signaling assembly part requests
- Assembly line proofing and verification
- Remote fill level indication
In addition, several features of EZ-LIGHT Audible and Segmented Indicators make them particularly easy to set up and use:
