Banner’s LE550 is factory configured with a range of 100 to 1000 mm and can start measuring immediately. If the range needs to be adjusted, the laser sensor has an intuitive user interface with a two-line, eight-character display, making it easy to automatically or manually adjust settings. The LE550 provides repeatability and accuracy across challenging targets, from metal to black rubber, allows for reliable measurement of the shrink wrap.

The LE550 provides repeatability and accuracy across challenging targets, from metal to black rubber, allowing for reliable measurement of the dark blue material.
Banner’s LE550 provides repeatability and accuracy across challenging targets, including shiny, reflective surfaces like metal. The laser sensor has an intuitive user interface, making it easy to adjust settings and set up a roll diameter application, without needing to unwind the metal roll. The analog output can be used to control wind or unwind speeds.
In the beverage industry, labels need to be applied to the bottles quickly and without error to keep production levels high. Accurately monitoring the thickness on a spool of labels and controlling the unwinding speed is very important for the process to run smoothly. A solution is needed that can accurately supervise and report the material levels on a spool in order to prevent it from running out during the manufacturing process and delaying production.
The two point teach option on the analog setting can be used teach the front of the flat cases as the 20 mA point and can easily be adjusted for a manual set of the 4 mA to the end of the cases. This helps gauge how many flat cases are left, so more cases can be added when the case count is getting low. The digital output can also be used for presence detection. This helps ensure there is a case available to be picked up, and also ensures only one box is picked up at a time.
During assembly, inspections are conducted to measure seat height adjustment, forward and rearward movement, and upright and recline motion. Two sensors are used for each inspection. The sensors are deployed off the conveyor line to ensure easy access to and the free movement of the seats. At its maximum range during inspection, a seat may be as far as a meter away from the sensors.
After a convincing demonstration, the company chose Banner’s L-GAGE® LE550 laser gauging sensors to replace the ultrasonic sensors on their winders. Like the optical sensors, the LE550 is unaffected by drafts in the facility. Unlike the optical sensors, the LE550 is color insensitive. Linear array technology enables the LE550 to measure each roll, regardless of paper color, even colors that had most challenged the optical sensors.
An automotive supply company makes a range of vehicle systems. Their seating systems combine structure and design with features that enhance comfort and safety. Weight sensors installed on the underside of the seats work in coordination with vehicle safety systems to determine the size and position of a seat occupant. These factors affect how or if airbags will be deployed in the event of an accident.
Cartons moving on a conveyor pass between two LE550 laser sensors, measuring the width in order to sort cartons properly. The LE550 sensors are an economic solution for carton profiling. The analog output sends a signal to the PLC to deliver the carton to the correct storage location. Banner’s LE550 provides repeatability and accuracy while measuring the height, length and width of cartons. The laser sensors have an intuitive user interface, making it easy to adjust settings.
Banner’s LE550 laser sensor is ideal for part-in-place verification processes. It is reliable, and extremely accurate for small part-in-place verification from long distances. The LE550 measures for 3 mm thickness using the digital output, ensuring that the retaining clip is present and the engine block is in the correct place.
A laser measurement solution enables high-speed package sorting in order fulfillment applications and helps drives failure rates down—ultimately saving costs and maximizing profits.
