Applications

Clear Bottle Detection
Clear Bottle Detection

Banner’s Q26 Clear Object Detection sensor is ideal for this type of application because it quickly and reliably detects clear and transparent objects and its coaxial design results in higher positional accuracy, which allows for precise leading edge detection. With a coaxial optical design, the emitted and reflected light travels along the same axis, which allows for very short sensor and reflector separation distances, ranging from 5 to 800 mm.

Banner’s QS30H2O was developed specifically 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 nm wavelength in the mid-IR (infrared) range—a wavelength that is easily attenuated by water.

LED Lights Used To Inspect Liquid Pharmaceuticals
LED Lights Used To Inspect Liquid Pharmaceuticals

One global provider of healthcare products had been using vision machines to detect particulates in their liquid pharmaceuticals. When the machines were no longer able to detect contaminants to the required percentage level, the company began using human visual inspections. Since many of the particulates are extremely minute, the company needed to install bright and highly uniform illumination in their work stations so operators could effectively verify the quality of products.
