Beacon light for indoor or outdoor status indication, wireless push button
Banner's K50 Beacon Light is designed for high visibility and indoor, outdoor applications, helping with industrial human-machine interactions. Also, the K50L provides wireless push button capabilities.
Banner Engineering Corp. EZ-Light K50 Beacon Light to its extensive line of lighting and indicators, helps with various human-machine interactions. See below for information about the K50-L, a wireless push button in the same product line.
Providing intense levels of light output from all directions, the new beacon light is designed to be a solution where high brightness is needed, including indoor and outdoor environments. Due to its high visibility, the K50 is an ideal lighting solution for a wide range of applications, including general status indication such as gate entrances, and for areas with high levels of ambient light that would normally wash out a standard indicator light.
The EZ-Light K50 Beacon Light is available in perimeter and perimeter plus top view models, providing complete visibility around the entire area. With 1- or 2-color light model options, operators can select between multiple LED colors for their desired application. Cabled and Quick Disconnect models are also available.
Featuring rugged, sealed thermoplastic housing rated for IP67 and IP69K, the K50 reportedly ensures effective operation in harsh outdoor environments, in addition to indoor environments where dust or water may be present. Operation varies depending on the model, with 12 to 30 V dc or 85 to 130 V ac (75 to 120 V dc).
Wireless: EZ-Light K50L push button
EZ-LIGHT K50L push-button is mapped to a dry contact output and is designed for use with wireless sensor networks, specifically Banner SureCross FlexPower battery-operated devices. Operating independently from its attached wireless device, the K50L push-button consumes minimal power for electrical circuits or control, while three sourcing inputs control the green, yellow and red indicator lights. The K50L's power-optimized electronics, combined with Banner’s reliable SureCross wireless network, provide an ideal solution for call lights and machine status indication—even for remote areas without wired power or data connections.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
