Capable of displaying up to seven different colours and featuring IP67 construction, signal lamps in the new DV2100 range from ifm electronic are suitable for machine and plant status signalling applications, either as an upgrade or as original equipment. To increase versatility, the new lamps can be supplied with an integral sounder that generates audible warnings at up to 90dB, and with an integral no-wear capacitive pushbutton. Versions are also available with both of these options. All models in the DV2100 range have an IO-Link interface for straightforward connectivity together with conventional digital inputs for use in simple and legacy applications.
When used with the IO-Link interface all operating parameters can be instantly adjusted via acyclic commands from a PLC. Operating parameters include dynamically changing to one of seven different colours, with a choice of three blinking modes and three flashing modes. Users can also choose from seven different warning sounds for models fitted with a sounder and, for pushbutton equipped models, the function of the pushbutton can be freely assigned.
Two operating modes are provided when conventional digital inputs are used. The first allows seven colours to be produced via three digital inputs that can be switched individually or in combination. The second mode allows three colours to be selected via separate pins on the unit's M12 connector and is intended for applications where the DV2100 is used as a replacement for a traditional multi-segment signalling lamp. In both of these modes, the sounder and pushbutton, when fitted, are accessible via separate pins on the M12 connector. DV2100 compact signalling lamps operate from nominal 24V DC supplies and all connections are made via a single M12 connector. Accessories include pole and wall mounting brackets, mounting poles of various lengths and pre-assembled connecting cables.
