Turck Banner launches rugged, hygienic strip lights

14 March 2016

Turck Banner has launches a new range of hygienic LED strip lights designed for use in food factories.

The WLS27 lights resist exposure to high-pressure, high-temperature water, solvents, cutting oils and a broad range of chemicals.

A video by the company shows the lights being run over by a car, sprayed with a high pressure hose and buried in soil. 

“Our customers, especially those in the food manufacturing sector, wanted a product that is practically indestructible,” said Ian Manning, marketing manager for the company. 

The lights are made out of a durable aluminium internal structure with shatterproof, UV-stabilised, polycarbonate shell. 

The smooth, no-crevice design enables thorough high-pressure cleansing, vital in food and beverage applications.

A redundant sealing method prevents water ingress to achieve IEC IP66, IP67, and IP69K ratings. These cost-effective LED light strips will provide vivid, low-power, maintenance-free illumination throughout their lifespan of 50,000 hours or more. A unique feature of the range is the built-in automatic temperature protection. Above 50 °C, the light dims to manage heat and protect product lifetime.

WLS27 LED striplights are optimal for use where laminar airflow is a requirement. To satisfy diverse applications, the WLS27 is available in eight lengths from 145 mm to 1130 mm. They are available as either stand-alone, or as cascade models that can be “daisy-chained” together for a continuous length of illumination, with a minimum of wiring.

Multiple colour illumination options, including single, dual and dimmable configurations are available. Colour options include cool white, warm white, red, green, blue and yellow. Dual-colour models feature two colours in one light strip, which maintains the same intensity as single-colour models. 

WLS27 LED striplights are offered with flexible mounting options, allowing users to deploy them in areas and applications where other lights may not fit. Optional snap clips are also available for simple installation and repositioning.
