All Facilities Operations Solutions

  1. Vehicle Presence and Absence at Loading Docks

    Banner’s R-Gage QT50R senses vehicles as they approach a loading dock, sending a signal to workers inside the facility of a truck’s arrival/departure. Monitoring the arrival of trucks at loading docks is simple with the R-Gage radar sensor coupled with Banner’s quality lighting and indication solutions. The radar sensor reliably detects trucks pulling up to the loading/unloading dock from 15 meters away.

  2. Vehicle Detection at a Loading Dock

    The M-GAGE S18M is a magnetoresistive sensor that responds to the shift in the surrounding magnetic field when a truck approaches. The M-GAGE is set up to trigger a signal that activates a light inside the warehouse, indicating the truck's presence. This sensors is encapsulated with rugged epoxy to resist moisture damage and was designed to be installed both above ground or directly into concrete and asphalt pavements.

  3. 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.

  4. Emergency Stop Buttons on a Conveyor

    Banner’s 30 mm mount E-Stop buttons work well in this type of application because they have an illuminated base that turns from yellow to flashing red when actuated. The red flashing illumination of the E-stop button visibly alerts operators which button was pressed so they can quickly and easily fix the problem to reduce down time and only reset the button that was activated.

  5. Facility Function Monitoring

    Banner’s wireless solutions can have multiple gateways tied to respective nodes, allowing for elimination of all wires and providing flexible mounting options. The wireless structure of gateways and nodes are responsible for communicating the critical I/O throughout the facility. Even with multiple wireless products, the wireless communication system is efficient and has no cross talk interference and does not interfere with the IT department.

  6. Emergency Indication on Conveyors

    Banner’s RP-LS42 safety rope pulls line conveyors as a way to indicate emergencies and immediately shut down conveyors. If a rope pull is used during an emergency, it can be difficult to locate exactly where it was pulled. A K30 indicator light can be paired with the rope pulls in order to provide indication as to where the rope was pulled. This allows for quick and easy indication of where an emergency occurred, helping to return to normal operations as fast as possible.
