Essex based distributor of electromechanical components Foremost Electronics, has announced the introduction the latest LED surface mount indicators from IDEC. The LH1D series of LED Spider Lights are a slim and stylish design ideal for mounting on the surface of equipment or panels and offer excellent visibility from the front and the side.
The surface-mount design does not affect the location of other panel components and requires only a small space behind the mounting surface.
LH1D Spider Lights can be used in many applications that do not have space behind the panel to mount conventional indicators. Typical applications include robotic arms, product picking machines, door monitoring and other applications where designers require dual-colour pre-wired LED Spider Lights rather than having to mount individual status indicators.
Key Features include LED indicators in seven colours and dual-colour as standard in flat or dome designs with three-colour illumination available in the jumbo dome model. An integrated one metre connecting cable is provided as standard with three and five metre available as options and a 30cm M12 connector terminated cable is available for the jumbo dome version. Marking film can be inserted into flat Spider Lights allowing customer legends and symbols to be printed and displayed.
The 24V AC/DC Spider Lights provide an impressive 50,000 hour lifespan while consuming low levels of energy and are UL Listed, CE marked and TUV rated. All Spider Light LED indicators are NEMA Type 4X and IP67 rated for protection against exposure to water or oils.
Alan Vincent, Sales Director of Foremost, commented: “The extended range of surface-mount industrial LED indicators from IDEC are ideal for panel and machine builders offering status and emergency information signals which can be mounted on any surface, whether a control panel, the arm of a robot or even an emergency exit. The wide number of colours and ability to add custom legends and symbols makes them suitable for a very wide range of applications. These industrial LED indicators fit in very well with our other HMI product ranges.”
