Applications

Detecting Refrigerated Breakfast Rolls on a Multi-Lane Conveyor
Detecting Refrigerated Breakfast Rolls on a Multi-Lane Conveyor

Dark packaging with multiple colors transitions can be difficult to detect with traditional red LED sensors. Banner Engineering’s miniature VS8 photoelectric sensor with blue LED works well with low reflectivity labels to detect refrigerated food packaged in pressurized cans. The small sensors fit into tight spaces and work well for short range applications. The blue LED works with the small spot size to minimize the effects of color transitions on the labels.
