Balluff’s series of SmartLight visual indicators is designed to direct, instruct and guide operators in manufacturing tasks. The indicators increase productivity and minimize workforce errors by providing personnel guidance in a variety of applications: pick-to-light systems, part placement, part positions, format-change guidance and others. They are intended to increase flexibility, speed and efficiency of human operators.

The indicators are capable of segment indication (as many as six), continuously variable level indication and run/wait indication. Machine mounting enables process information to be displayed directly in the operator's line of sight. Expansion mode enables two indicators to be connected to one IO-Link port.

The indicators are available in a range of colors, and their shape enables direction indication. They operate in one, two, three or six segments, and their level mode can display multiple colors for low and high values. Run/wait mode can indicate stoppages and slowdowns.
