An addition to its lineup of next gen high-intensity LED panel mount indicators has been introduced by Dialight. The watertight 656 series ½” indicators incorporate the latest LED technology to deliver superior brightness and visibility in five standard colours for a wide range of indoor and outdoor applications, including instrument and UL 508 panels, safety indicators, power generation, rail, bus and airline transportation and vehicle and equipment applications.

Featuring an IP-67 rated, fully water-, dust- and dirt-proof design, the 656 series is built with a robust tamper-proof metal housing that is extremely durable and highly resistant to shock and vibration, making it ideal for use in harsh environments and public spaces.

The lens is available in both flat and wide-angle domed design for up to 180° visibility. Unlike most lenses that are coated with UV protectant, the 656 series lens features a polycarbonate lens with integrated UV-stabiliser to prevent discolouration and degradation that will not peel, crack or fade in direct sunlight. The red, yellow, green, blue and white colour options all offer high-intensity illumination, making them fully daylight viewable.

“Dialight’s roots run deep in the indicator business—it’s where we began, and continuing to drive innovation in this market remains a top priority,” said Michael Sutsko, Dialight’s Group Chief Executive.

“The 656 series fills an important void in the industry, with a fully watertight indicator in this very common cut-out size to suit a wide range of panel mount applications, from heavy equipment, process and industrial machinery to medical equipment.” The 656 series operates in a wide voltage range from 12-125v DC and 125-230v AC, covering the full spectrum of applications. Installation can be made using either a 6” wire lead or with Faston quick-connect blade terminals for fast and secure installation. The units are UL 1598 certified and RoHS compliant with 6C exemption.

Rated for a minimum 100,000 hour lifespan, the 656 series carries Dialight’s 1-year full-performance warranty.
