Banner Engineering Machine Safety: AG4 Safety Laser Scanners

Posted by Advanced Controls & Distribution on Feb 12, 2019 8:29:40 AM

Laser scanners serve as a safeguarding mechanism in places where normal devices such as emergency plungers and pushbuttons aren’t viable. The technology used within laser scanners is called “time-of-flight”, which involves the scanner calculating the position of the object based on the time taken by the laser to travel back.

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.
