Banner Introduces Several Enhancements to WLS28 Work Light Strip



MINNEAPOLIS — When Banner Engineering Corp. first developed the WLS28 Work Light Strip, the goal was make a task light that provided even, bright, highly efficient white LED illumination to enclosures and other areas with poor lighting conditions. Having supremely achieved that goal, the WLS28 has since evolved and now offers a number of significant enhancements and purchase options, making it a dynamic part of Banner’s line of lighting and indicators.

Banner’s new WLS28 models are now available in the following:
* Six different colors (cool and warm white, red, green, blue, and yellow)
* Standard or push button on/off
* Sealed IP67/IP69K or unsealed IP50
* Cascadable or non-cascadable
* Clear or diffused plastic windows

“We’re excited about the growth we’ve seen in the task lighting area, and the WLS28 has been a big part of that since its initial release,” said Chuck Dolezalek, Director of Product Development for Lighting and Indicator products. “We’ve taken some big steps toward realizing the potential of the WLS28 with the new models we’ve added. New models have meant new applications for our customers and also new business markets for us.”

The core qualities that have made the WLS28 a versatile lighting solution remain the same — each light features a robust, yet small profile metal housing and is available in various lengths from 145mm (5.7 in.) to 1130mm (44.5 in.), while maintaining the same narrow width of 28mm (1.1 in.) for all models. Extremely bright LEDs emit an even pattern of light, casting no shadows. The WLS28 also boasts cost and time saving attributes in the form of energy efficiency and installation simplicity. By consuming less than 9 watts per foot, the WLS28 is remarkably frugal for a light that is designed to last more than 50,000 hours of continuous operation with minimal loss of intensity. Cascading the lights end-to-end potentially cuts costs even more by reducing the amount of wiring and installation time needed.

Zinc-plated 14-gage steel swivel mounting brackets that allow 45° pivoting in either direction are included, but the WLS28 has several mounting options and bracket styles. Another mounting option includes the use of high strength magnets, which eliminates the need to drill holes and allows the light to be repositioned. The WLS28 operates on 12 to 30V dc power and is available in cabled or quick disconnect models.
