Minneapolis, MN—October 21, 2009—Banner Engineering Corp. introduces their
"The R58A provides high-performance registration mark detection that is low-cost and easy-to-use," said Dennis Smith, Technical Marketing Engineer at Banner. "Banner's international and domestic customers require reliable mark detection, easy sensor set-up and fast response time—at a competitive price. The R58A delivers on all these requirements." Smith adds, "As the user adjusts the switching threshold using a potentiometer, two green LEDs guide the user to the optimal setting. The output logic is also user-selectable via a light/dark operate switch, enabling rapid product changeover on high mix printing lines."
The R58A's excellent contrast sensitivity, coupled with its small 1.2 x 3.8 mm sensing image, enables the sensor to detect subtle registration marks on high-gloss and other challenging materials, as well as in low-contrast applications. Additionally, the rugged metal housing and high-quality acrylic lens are designed to handle ambient electrical noise and vibration from presses and die cutting machinery.
A single emitter color—red or green, specified by model number—ensures that the customer's preferred light source is used every time. Banner also offers the more advanced with comprehensive TEACH options and three LED sensing colors—red, green and blue—in one sensor, allowing the user to optimize contrast based on the application.
Applications The R58A Series Registration Mark Sensor provides reliable registration mark detection in a wide range of applications, including:
