As we move ahead towards an across-the-board adoption of Industry 4.0 and its associated technologies, the importance of sensory equipment is becoming increasingly paramount. Sensors bridge the gap between the physical and the digital world, turning raw data into useful information that can be acted upon and used in a plethora of ways.
Safety relays are control devices that sit between safety equipment and machines, activated either forcefully through a signal or by setting a physical parameter threshold. In industrial environments, safety is key to a productive plant floor. Devices such as safety relays allow activities to continue without the risk of injury or incidents.
Banner Engineering maintains a comprehensive portfolio of Safety Relays built for every situation, condition, and requirement. No matter what the application, Banner Engineering has the right safety relay for your shop.
As simple and nifty as they are, barcode readers play an essential and integral part within industrial automation. These electronic devices are heavily used for processes such as inventory management, and new advancements have given them capabilities such as ethernet communication, instilling in them, reiterated support for automation.
Banner Engineering offers a variety of senors and scanners for industrial purposes. Their advanced barcode readers are fit for use within industrial environments and capable of meeting heavy workloads.
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.
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.
Manufacturers are always on the lookout for better assembly methods to meet their production schedules and volumes, while limiting their cost overhead. From manual workstations to automated assembly lines, maximizing production efficiency is critical to ensure competitiveness in the global marketplace.
Banner Engineering provides manufacturers with specialized industry knowledge and expertise in the field of sensors, wireless I/O, safety control, and LED lighting, helping manufacturers enhance their processes. Some examples of Banner Engineering’s products at work include the following.
Industrial production is composed of a number of tasks, all of which go hand in hand. One of these tasks is measuring distances. The applications are so non-uniform in nature that producing one sensor capable of meeting all requirements is extremely difficult. Thus, Banner Engineering offers a number of laser distance sensors that have been designed for varying user requirements, while keeping the reliability, safety and workability in check.
Temperature and Vibration Sensors are physically minor yet highly impactful components of any plant. The data they provide can be used not only for automation of equipment but to increase efficiency of processes.
Banner Engineering has years' worth of experience and expertise in the design, development, and production of Temperature and Vibration Sensors. Three of their newer temperature sensors bring precision, adaptability, and durability to the long line of Banner Engineering products.
Fiber optics have revolutionized the communication industry globally, and filled the vacuum left by medias such as copper & electromagnetic waves. Providing higher throughput over longer distances, fiber optics form the backbone of the world’s communication, connecting cities, countries and continents.
However, this isn’t the only application where fiber optics are used. In recent years, fiber optics have also penetrated the industrial sector, providing sensing in hard to reach areas that are otherwise effected by electromagnetic interference.
Have you ever been in one of those situations where you wished you just had a ‘pause’ button? Accidents on the plant floor can cause irreparable damage to equipment and personnel that can adversely affect your company’s productivity, profitability and safety.
Banner Engineering has developed highly responsive emergency stop devices that can give you the power to stop an accident as soon as you notice something’s wrong, thus preventing the damage from going any further.
