70 mm Modular Tower Lights
Banner’s new 70 mm TL70 tower light is a bright and attractive uniform light, now with the flexibility to assemble, change or add segments in the field. The larger diameter and higher intensity light make the TL70 an ideal solution for larger machines and bright plant environments. The TL70 tower light is available in both pre-assembled units and modular segments. There are five LED segment colors available with user-selectable solid ON, 1.5 Hz or 3 Hz flash rate. The audible alarm segment can be configured for pulsed, chirp, siren or continuous alarm.
Features & Benefits
- Modular IP65 design gives the user flexibility to customize functions and operations, and install in many environments
- Wireless options facilitate installation and enable remote monitoring and control
- Bright, uniform color segments appear gray when off to eliminate false indication
- Top-mounted audible modules from 75 to 101 dB, including multi-tone and programmable audible models, allow for custom alerts or announcement
Empty Shelves? Real-time communication for parts
A system of Banner Engineering’s TL70 wireless modular tower lights and K50 touch buttons provides an efficient, easy way to communicate a call for more parts with a forklift driver. When a workstation is almost out of cartons, the operator touches the ergonomic K50 touch button which changes the status on the connected TL70 wireless tower light to red. This sends a signal to a Banner Gateway on a forklift which changes the status on the TL70 wireless tower light on the forklift to red, alerting the driver to deliver a pallet of cartons to the appropriate location.
How many light segments can be used in the TL70 tower light? How many audible segments can be used?
The TL70 tower light can have up to 6 light segments, or 5 light segments and an audible.
How many audible tones can a single TL70 tower light produce? Can you have different audible tones in the same segment?
Only one audible alarm segment can be used per tower light. There are 4 different audible alarms available for the TL70 tower lights, some of which are capable of having different tones (Multi-Tone Audible and Programmable Audible).
How loud are the audible tones?
The audibles will vary in loudness from 75-101 dB; 75 dB is similar in loudness to a vacuum cleaner, and 101 dB is similar to a jackhammer.
How bright are the LEDs in the TL70 Tower Light?
The brightness of the LEDs depends on the color. Below are the lumen output levels of each color (typically at 25 °C):
- Green: 92
- Red: 40
- Yellow: 22
- Blue: 32
- White: 125
- Orange: 33
What is the lifespan of the LEDs? Can you replace burnt LEDs?
The lifespan of the LEDs is over 50,000 hours. It is extremely rare to burn out LEDs; it is much more likely that the light will be damaged before the LEDs burn out. It is not possible to replace individual LEDs, however, it is possible to replace individual light segments (see datasheet for model numbers).
Can the TL70 Tower Light be seen outside in direct sunlight?
One of the major benefits of the TL70 tower light is that the light segments appear gray when they are not lit up; this allows for reliable visibility when the tower light is used in outdoor applications.
How do you make the tower light segments flash?
Each tower light segment is capable of flashing. Dip switches 7 and 8 on the segments determine if the segment will be solid, flashing at 1.5 Hz, or flashing at 3 Hz.
