Liquid in Container Detection
Liquid in Container Detection

Banner combined the technology of WORLD-BEAM QS30 opposed mode sensors, which provide high excess gain, with a 1450 nm infrared sensing beam—specially tuned to an absorption band of water, to create the QS30H2O Water Sensor. In this application, the powerful sensing beam of the QS30H2O will burn through the opaque plastic of the container. At 1450 nm, water absorbs 1,000 times the energy of alternative wavelengths, preventing the beam from burning through the liquid within the container.

Non-Contact Fill Level Verification
Non-Contact Fill Level Verification

Banner’s QS30H2O sensor is a specialized sensor developed to address challenges with sensing the presence of water and water-based liquids. The QS30H2O operates in a through beam sensing mode and the emitter uses a wavelength that is tuned to not pass through water. The high excess gain of the sensor makes it powerful enough to see through an assortment of plastic and glass containers. Two pairs of sensors can be utilized to determine that the fill level has met minimum but is not overfilled and wasting product. Apertures can be placed on the receiver end to minimize the beam pattern and increase accuracy of the application. This ensures products that do not meet fill level criteria are not processed or shipped.

Thread Hole Detection
Thread Hole Detection

Conventional sensors can often have difficulty detecting the presence of threads. The WORLD-BEAM QS30's narrow laser beam can detect whether a hole in the manifold is threaded from a distance of up to 800 mm.

Board  Warp Detection with a QS30
Board Warp Detection with a QS30

As boards pass on a conveyor, the high-sensitivity WORLD-BEAM laser QS30 detects boards that are higher than flat ones due to warping. The light-polarizing reflector mounted opposite the sensor eliminates the need to wire both sides of the conveyor.

Fill Level Verification of Water Bottles
Fill Level Verification of Water Bottles

Banner’s QS30H2O sensor is a specialized sensor developed to address challenges with optically sensing the presence of water and water-based liquids. The QS30H2O operates in a through beam sensing mode and the emitter has a unique LED with a 1450 wavelength. The 1450 wavelength is easily attenuated by water.

Exit Chute Jam Indication
Exit Chute Jam Indication

Banner’s Q30FF600 background suppression sensor confirms when a product enters the exit chute to ensure it came off the sortation system and that there isn’t a jam in the product chute. The Q30FF600 has long range sensing up to 600 mm, which is the standard width of many chutes.

Parts Detection in a Feeder Bowl
Parts Detection in a Feeder Bowl

In this illustration, caps have been loaded into a feeder bowl which consistently orientates the parts to be positioned for bottle application later in the process. The Banner QS30AF an ideal sensing solution for this application, positioned to monitor the supply level of the caps as they move out of the bowl.

Packaging Frozen Dinners on a Cartoner
Packaging Frozen Dinners on a Cartoner

WLS28 Work Light Strips: Bright, long-lasting LED light strips provide optimal visibility inside the cartoner for operator access and easily fit on the machine without obscuring access Safety Hinge Switches: Stainless steel, load-bearing safety hinge switches support the cartoner’s machine door and will shut down the machine if the doors are opened, and minimize the risk of intentional defeat

Inspection Trigger in Printing
Inspection Trigger in Printing

The WORLD-BEAM QS30 adjustable sensor acts as a trigger for the vision sensor. When the QS30 detects the presence of a new page, it signals the vision sensor, which inspects the page's collation signature.

Juice Carton Detection
Juice Carton Detection

As cartons of juice pass on a conveyor, the WORLD-BEAM QS30 sensor in fixed-field mode detects the presence or absence of a carton, regardless of color and pattern.

Medicine Bottle Detection for Filling
Medicine Bottle Detection for Filling

The WORLD-BEAM QS30 in adjustable-field mode detects the presence of plastic medication bottles of various colors and relays the information to a filling device.
