Fiber Optics

Fiber optic systems are typically used in harsh conditions, including high vibration, extreme heat, and noisy, wet, corrosive or explosive environments. Fibers are also used in confined areas since many models can be bent to fit precisely where needed. Glass fibers are mostly used in challenging environments, such as applications with high temperatures, corrosive materials or moisture. Plastic fibers are typically used for more general purpose applications where they can tolerate extreme bending and be cut to length to fit in limited space setups. Banner Engineering offers a wide range of fiber optics and compatible fiber optic amplifiers

  1. Right Angle Fibers

    Space saving, easily installed fiber optic sensor ends can be mounted in the tightest applications.

  2. Plastic Fiber Optics

    Plastic fibers are typically used for more general purpose applications where they can tolerate extreme bending and be cut to length to fit in limited space setups.

  3. Glass Fiber Optics

    Glass fibers can be used in challenging environments, such as applications with high temperatures, corrosive materials or moisture.

  4. Array and Slot Fibers

    Array and slot fibers are customizable for a simple setup and provide an optimal solution for small part counting applications. Array fibers are ideal for broad spectrum detection and slot fibers are pre-aligned and easy to install.

  5. High Flexibility Fibers

    High-flex fibers are ideal for machines with reciprocating motions and when fibers need to be repeatedly bent. With a higher elasticity rating, high-flex fibers are best for use on moving machines, such as robotic arms.

  6. Stainless Steel Sheathed

    Stainless Steel Sheathed rugged fiber models resist kinking, cutting and snagging and have a low profile to easily embed in machines. With a strong, solid sheathing, they are great for mechanical protection in applications where standard plastic fibers would not hold up. Ideal for busy assembly stations, embedded in stations, part presence or places where equipment is constantly moved on and off a production line.

  7. Focused and Extended Range Fibers

    Lensed fiber models work well in confined areas, providing increased performance and reliability. They are also ideal for longer range applications, such as sensing in an intrinsically safe area, or applications requiring a focused beam for small features or objects.

  8. High Temperature Fiber Optics

    High temp fiber optics are used in situations where the temperature is above a certain limit for most plastic fibers. These are usually used in thermal process applications and Banner offers the widest selection of plastic and glass fibers for high temperature situations.

  9. Specialty Fibers

    Specialty and custom fibers are designed for specific sensing applications. Many of the standard fibers can be customized and ready for use in days, not weeks. Banner excels in customization and will work with you to find the right solution.
