Thanks to advancements in laser measurement technology, sensors can now reliably detect and measure more challenging targets (including clear, reflective, and low contrast targets) and can handle multiple inspection tasks with one sensor.
With IO-Link communication, it is becoming easier to track sensor performance, identify trends in inspection results, and even predict when maintenance is needed so that simple problems like a dirty lens can be fixed before sensor failure.
Problem-solving sensors from Banner Engineering save time and reduce costs by reliably performing challenging inspections even in harsh industrial environments, reducing inventory requirements, and speeding up changeover. Select your challenge below to learn how smart sensors solve it.
Dual-mode sensors measure distance and light intensity to reliably detect a wide range of transparent and translucent objects. IP69K-rated stainless steel housing resists exposure to harsh cleaners and washdown.
A smart sensor can verify multiple conditions at once. In this application, a Q4X sensor detects three common failure modes for IC chips in pocket tape: no chip in pocket, two chips in pocket, and one chip upside down in pocket.
With best-in-class excess gain, the Q5X laser sensor reliably detects dark targets on dark backgrounds when there is a height difference.
