Balluff’s (Florence, KY) new Smart Light is the first stack light on the market to incorporate flexible digital configuration—without the need for complex hardware selection—says the company. By using Balluff’s software-configurable Smart Light to indicate machine status, visual indication is simplified with just a single part number. The Smart Light can be connected to virtually any industrial network via the open and universal standard, IO-Link. This device can be used with a variety of IP67 distributed modular I/O products offered from a variety of IO-Link vendors, which eliminates the need to have a remote I/O box simply to control an indicator light. Balluff’s Smart Light can be configured on the fly and is controlled using simple bitmaps for the outputs.
