The machine LED lights feature a PLD communication module that can be used to completely integrate the lights into a machine’s control unit by the shortest possible route. The lights use innovative optics to provide efficient and glare-free lighting in the work area. They can be continuously dimmed or operated in stroboscope mode, and can be connected in series if necessary. The lights can be integrated with protection class IP67 into machines used in electronics production, printing technology, packaging, filling, and the processing of wood, metal, and plastics. As a provider of integrated optoelectronic system solutions, Jenoptik is responsible for the development and production of the PLD machine lights under the cooperation agreement concluded in 2012. Phoenix Contact distributes the products via its global sales network. The agreement will run for a period of five years. This strategic collaboration is expected to include the development and production of further products by Jenoptik in order to keep expanding the new PLD product range.
