Banner Engineering Corp.: Easy-touch operator light
The EZ-Light K50 Touch from Banner is a rugged, cost-effective lighted operator device designed for easy and efficient pick-to-light and lean manufacturing processes.
The K50 Touch provides simple performance, allowing users to easily change the light from green to red with the touch of a finger, hand or whole palm—with bare hands or work gloves—for bright, clear indication. Featuring an ergonomic design, the K50 Touch requires no physical pressure to operate, preventing stress on hands and wrists from constantly pressing buttons to verify correct picks during pick and place operations. An ergonomic product that clearly defines the area that needs to be touched for verification, also helps workers pick and place parts more efficiently.
Providing flexible operating capabilities to solve a wide variety of applications, K50 Touch operators are available in 1-, 2- and 3-color models.
With a laser-marked surface and a housing rated to IP69K, the K50 Touch is extremely durable and can withstand harsh conditions and moisture for challenging environments. The self-contained device eliminates the need for an external controller. Solid-state technology allows for a very long service life compared to traditional mechanical solutions.
