Clearly visible light signals

Leuze introduces new tower lights in robust aluminium housing onto the market. The TL 305 series offers bright and homogeneous illumination as well as an optional IO-Link interface.

Tower lights are indispensable in machine and system construction as well as in intralogistics; they make states, faults, and ongoing processes clearly visible from a distance. The new Leuze tower lights of the TL 305 series can do all of this extremely reliably. They light up brightly, uniformly, and fully. This enables optimum signalling – whether at the machine, on the conveyor belt, or for access control.

The compact towers are available preconfigured with three, four, or five segments. The new range of tower lights includes the TL 305 models with a predefined colour assignment as well as the TL 305-IOL models with an IO-Link interface. The IO-Link variants allow different operating modes and provide an extensive selection of colours. On request, the tower lights are also available with an additional acoustic signaller.

The individually configurable TL 305-IOL tower lights can be parameterized extremely flexibly via the IO-Link interface. System operators can signal individual machine states by means of different brightnesses, lighting sequences, colours or types of signal sound.

Quick and easy implementation

System operators benefit from the immediate usability of the tower lights. The M30 thread and M12 connectors make them easy to install. Matching accessories simplify installation. All models of the series are characterized by a high quality and robust design. The aluminium housing allows the tower lights to be used even in demanding industrial environments.

The TL 305 tower lights used in combination with a proximity sensor are also suitable for safety-related monitoring tasks. For example, if a door is opened, a visual and/or acoustic warning is output.

The IO-Link version TL 305-IOL with its different operating modes offers maximum flexibility. Segment mode enables the segments to be actuated individually via IO-Link. This allows colour, intensity, and lighting sequences to be configured individually. Level mode is used to visualise fill levels. If fast commissioning is required, users can actuate eight predetermined or user-defined configurations via the three external trigger inputs even without an IO-Link connection.
