Anti-glare machine lights with integrated lenses
28 October 2013
The LED machine lights from Phoenix Contact's Phoenix Lighting Devices (PLD) range are designed to illuminate panels or machines for start-up, maintenance, and fault detection, as well as during production.
The LED’s provide a light intensity of up to 5,000 lx. A built-in lens ensures that lighting is efficient and homogeneous, without causing glare.
Brightness can be adjusted with a continuous dimmer to match the machine’s operating states and interior lighting conditions. Up to 15 lights can be switched in series as needed, which reduces necessary cabling and installation time. The lights can optionally be switched on and off using an integrated digital input. This reduces the need for relays or switches, which have a high contact capacity. Other savings are granted in the area of servicing, as the average LED lifecycle is 65,000 hours.
The machine lights can be integrated with the machine control unit via a PLD communications module. The module is inserted before the first light; setup and operation are conveniently provided via the machine’s bus system.
The lights are available in lengths of 200, 365, and 695mm, with a beam angle of 50° or 100°. The communications modules are available with either a PROFINET or PROFIBUS interface.
