New LED indicator with 180° visibility developed by EAO


EAO has announced that it is to produce a new compact, impact resistant LED indicator, the IP69K, which provides high-intensity illumination and 180° all-round visibility.

The robust LED indicator is an addition to its Series 14, and has applications in heavy duty industrial vehicles.

The new indicator offers homogeneous LED illumination, an easy to wire PIT (Push-In-Terminal), a very low back panel depth and 180° all-round visibility – even from great distances. The robust front protection (up to IP69K) and the IK07 impact resistance make this indicator ideal for use in harsh, industrial environments – in interior and exterior spaces along with applications where high levels of humidity and extreme temperature fluctuations can occur.

With a minimal back panel depth of just 9.5 mm, a small outer diameter of 33.5 mm, and a polyamide seal, these units function reliably once mounted in even the most confined spaces. Connectivity through push-in-terminals (PIT) offer ease and flexibility with installation. Once secured to the panel by use of a fixing nut or a screw thread in the mounting cut-out, the cable is then connected quickly. These units can handle an operational voltage range between 14 and 32 VAC / DC, with a current consumption of less than 50 mA.

The standard range of options includes red, blue, green, orange and white LEDs that offer a lifetime of more than 50 000 operating hours. EAO Value Added Services are possible with customisation options including colours, operating voltage (from 12 to 36 V) and connectors and cables.
