WLS27 Pro Programmable LED Strip Light from Banner Engineering

With the WLS72 Pro LED Strip Light, Banner Engineering has expanded its offering of the WLS27 Series strip light by including programmable models with RGBW LEDs for use in indication, illumination and inspection applications.  These new configurable LED strip lights include discrete and IO-Link models, standard and heavy diffuse, 13 colors and 6 white temperatures.

Key Benefits

Easy IO-Link and Pro Editor Configurations

With Banner’s Pro Editor software, users can program the device status, colors and animations for control via three discrete inputs.  The software is an application-based interface making it easy to configure a light for a wide range of applications.  The Pro Editor software is also ideal for those who do not have IO-Link but still want control and customization to communicate information visually.

The IO-Link models allow for dynamic control and have additional models that the discrete units don’t.  They enable users to change device parameters from the control system as needed which reduces downtime and allows machines to accommodate greater product diversity.  The IO-Link models can be divided in up to ten segments for applications like pick-to-light or assembly guidance.

Calibrated Color and Advanced Animations

The WLS27 Pro has RGBW LEDs which give a clean, flicker-free white light, making it a high-quality illumination product.  It has a total of nineteen colors, which includes thirteen colors and six white colors.  The light can be programmed to accommodate a variety of environments or situations including safety, whereby a bright white light is ideal, or during normal operations to indicate efficiencies or other machine statuses.  The WLS27 Pro can also be programmed for advanced statuses including alarm states, temperature displays, position information, and counts for process verification.

Reliable Performance in Harsh Environments

The WLS27 Pro offers reliable performance in a variety of harsh environments including washdown, machining, and outdoor environments in due part to it’s rugged IP69K design.  The lights are constructed with sturdy aluminum frames and sealed in a shatterproof copolyester housing, which makes them resistant to wet environments, impact, and breakage.

Illumination & Indication with EZ-Status

With EZ-STATUS, the WLS27 Pro offers illumination and several indication capabilities to simply installation and improve ergonomics.  The EZ-STATUS reduces the risk of costly mistakes and accidents by offering a faster response to status changes.


The WLS27 Pro with IO-Link are ideal for use in indication, illumination, and inspection applications such as:

  • Bright white light for efficiency, quality and safety during normal operation
  • Standard diffusion window for full intensity and/or LED resolution
  • Provide operator guidance for assembly and manufacturing processes
  • Heavy diffuse window for smooth glow and close-range indication
  • Show time elapsed, level, temperature, position, angle or other “analog” type signals
  • Highlight available work zone status in robot cells
  • Provide operator guidance for assembly and manufacturing processes
  • Factory traffic status indication at intersections
  • High visibility indication for machine status and more
  • Human and machine vision inspection
