The UltraSeal backlights and newly-introduced bar lights from Advanced Illumination are purpose-built to perform in extreme wash-down environments and feature a rare IP69K rating. From liquid immersion to high-pressure steam to corrosive solutions, the UltraSeal products stand up to the realities of what “wash-down” means – both Cleaning and Disinfection.
The UltraSeal lights feature a patent-pending design that is virtually crevice-free, making them ideal for hygienic inspection environments, aseptic manufacturing and packaging, food and beverage applications and any application where a commitment to wash-down protocols is essential to helping ensure consumer safety.
The UltraSeal concept is being applied to other Advanced Illumination products, so please contact R.J. Wilson, Inc. for additional information and to discuss your wash-down machine vision lighting challenges.
Smart Vision Lights offers its LW300 Series Linear Connect-a-Light 300mm bar light in a rugged IP68-rated stainless-steel housing to tolerate wash-down cleaning and harsh detergents.

Smart Vision Lights also offers an IP68-rated back light, the SOBLW Series. This light has similar construction, with a stainless-steel housing that is FDA food-grade compliant.
TPL Vision has introduced an IP69K version of its EBar bar light, with lengths up to 1,250mm. The food-grade compliant stainless-steel frame and smooth cylindrical surface stand up to cleaning solvents and high humidity.

Back Light Version of the IP69K Bar Light Available
TPL Vision also offers an IP69K back light with a similar form factor to the IP69K bar lights. A diffuser is used to provide wash-down-capable backlighting for line scan use or to provide diffuse front lighting at shorter working distances.
When considering wash-down lighting, keep in mind that a wipe-down cleaning regimen in a clean-room may still use caustic chemicals that can deteriorate a light’s metal or plastic housing, adding to contamination rather than mitigating it. The materials used in the housings for wash-down lighting are specifically designed to mitigate the effects of caustic chemicals used in high-pressure and often in wipe-down methods of cleaning
