Banner Engineering Lighting and Indicators: Tower Lights

Posted by Advanced Controls & Distribution on Jul 25, 2018 10:54:05 AM

Combination lighting has often been used in industries for indication purposes in complex situations. Typically, lights of different colors have been stacked, with each color representing a particular situation. This process is time-consuming and also counterproductive due to the number of resources it utilizes. As an alternative, tower lights are preassembled and preconfigured multi-segment LEDs that offer greater flexibility, sturdiness, and ease-of-installation.

Banner Engineering offers a variety Tower Lights to fit a number of specialized situations or environments.

Banner Engineering Ultrasonic Sensors

Posted by Advanced Controls & Distribution on Jun 12, 2018 2:26:47 PM

Some industry applications are particular tricky, especially stable detection of uneven surfaces, clear objects, or liquids. Light-based sensors can fail to tell the difference between solids and liquids, thus making them unreliable. A better choice for these scenarios is an ultrasonic sensor, which is built for precise measurements between stationary and moving objects.

Banner Engineering understands the importance of being able to precisely measure between objects, and has created several lines of ultrasonic sensors just for that purpose. Each line of sensors fits unique situations so the right sensor can be chosen for the right task.

Banner Engineering Slot Sensors and Part Sensing

Posted by Advanced Controls & Distribution on Jun 8, 2018 11:05:01 AM

Slot sensors and part sensing arrays are highly resourceful and utilizable devices that can help industries keep up with their goals of automation. These optical slot sensors are characterized by their forked shape, and detect objects that pass between their two arms, with one being the emitter and the other the receiver. Part sensing arrays are characterized by two parts that work similar to a slot sensor without the fork-like shape.

Banner Engineering offers a durable and reliable range of slot sensors that can meet a dynamic range of requirements, while holding up in industrial environments.
