Weidmüller WIL STANDARD LED: Weidmüller Industrial Light (WIL)

WIL STANDARD is a new LED light from Weidmüller that is suitable for a range of applications and impresses on both a technical and design level. The LED light incorporates three rows of LEDs (3 × 14 LEDs) arranged in a trapesium shape at 20-degree angles, allowing for an ultra-wide beam angle and a broad illuminated area. This design means users do not have to rotate the light to illuminate specific areas or even change the direction. Weidmüller WIL LED lights offer high performance at low consumption. IP67 protection enables installation in a range of applications. The light is connected using an M12 plug-in connector. The operating voltage is 24V DC with a maximum current of 430mA. The very bright light has a light colour of 6500K - roughly equivalent to daylight and therefore acceptable to the eye.

The new LED industrial light is very flush at just 8mm and produces a white, very bright, non-dazzling light. The flat construction offers users a range of installation options either in the control cabinet or the field, i.e. directly on or in the machine. In the control cabinet, the LED light can either be fitted concealed behind a folded edge or simply on the side panel. The LED lamp with a high IP67 degree of protection has been specially designed for installation in the field. With just one WIL STANDARD LED light, Weidmüller can therefore cover a range of applications in the control cabinet or the field.

Thanks to the fixing holes in the light, installation is simple and direct, with no need for any additional fitting materials such as clips or similar. Spaced 225mm apart and with a diameter of 6.5mm, the fixing holes ensure simplified installation in conventional control cabinets. To make installation easier, the LED light has pre-assembled M12 connections with a 30cm-long prefabricated cable, so no individual cables or wires need to be connected. Thanks to the M12 plug-in connector, the new Weidmüller light can be cascaded with multiple lights connected in parallel. A matching M12 T-piece is also available from Weidmüller. Because of the low current consumption, users also have the option of connecting the LED light directly to the 0.5-A standard output of a PLC. With a 2-A PLC output module, four lights can also be connected in parallel.

With a height of just 8mm, the Weidmüller LED light is very flush, and measures 240mm in length and 40mm in width. The LED light is designed for industrial requirements with a high light intensity (200 lux) and luminous flux (1880 lm) and not for high-volume external applications. Its service life is at least 10,000 hours. The illuminated area is completely encapsulated, making the LED light suitable for harsh industrial environments. PUR is used as the casting material. All enclosures are made from a hard-anodised aluminium extruded profile with matt nickel-plated and chrome-plated zinc diecast caps. Based on the industrial development approach, the new WIL does not require an air-sealed area, so there is no inspection glass which can break. This design makes the LED light very robust. It also emits very little heat, so coolants and lubricants do not overheat.

LED lights for industrial purposes can be used anywhere where constant, defined light is required for illuminating control cabinets or machines. Light not only affects work quality and satisfaction, it also has an impact on safety. Compared with traditional lights, LEDs have a longer service life, reduced maintenance costs and less energy consumption. They are more robust, are often resistant to jolts and vibrations and are more compact, thus improving lighting even confined spaces, plus their brightness is available in full immediately.
