Patlite’s new NE signal light is a compact, rugged design providing versatile status change indication for wide-ranging industrial applications such as conveyor lines, automated guided vehicles, machine tools, robots, and warehousing. Featuring a highly efficient, long life LED, the NE provides seven different discrete signal colors to notify personnel of changing equipment or environmental conditions. On conveyor lines for example, the NE can shine green during normal operation, red for emergency stop condition, yellow to indicate error, dark blue to indicate material jam, light blue to signal supervisor call, or purple to indicate ready to start status. Similarly on an automated guided vehicle, the NE shines green for forward movement, dark blue for reverse, yellow for obstacle detection, red for error, purple for dead battery, etc.
The opaque white lens cover on the NE is designed to uniformly diffuse the light source so that each color emitted shines equally clear and bright. The seven discrete light output colors are created by seven different wiring combinations to the three-wire input. (Power to only the red wire = red light; green wire = green light; blue wire = blue light; red & green wire = yellow light; red & blue wire = purple light; etc.). The compact profile of the surface-mounted housing measures a mere 61 mm in height by 57 mm in diameter, making the NE suitable to fit virtually any piece of equipment or machinery. The NE is perfectly suited for integration in varied industrial settings with a rated voltage of 12 to 24 VDC and gasketed construction that gives it an IP66/IP67 rating for very wet or dusty environments. The NE is attached to any flat mounting surface with two screws or optional ½” NPT adaptor. Wiring is easy with its two-meter lead cable.
