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.

Banner Engineering EZ-Light K50Providing 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

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
