VS8 Series

Miniature Sensor for Precise Detection

  • Miniature sensor for installation in the smallest of spaces
  • Red laser models provide bright, precise laser light spot for optimum small part detection
  • Models with a blue LED reliably detect challenging targets, including dark, reflective, and transparent objects without requiring a reflector
  • High switching frequency for detection in even the fastest processes
  • User-friendly operation using electronic push button or remote input provides reliable and precise detection
  • Red laser, Red LED, and Blue LED types available to match sensing beam to application
  • Robust, glass-fiber-reinforced plastic housing
  • PNP or NPN output, depending on model

Detecting Refrigerated Breakfast Rolls on a Multi-Lane Conveyor
Detecting Refrigerated Breakfast Rolls on a Multi-Lane Conveyor

Dark packaging with multiple colors transitions can be difficult to detect with traditional red LED sensors. Banner Engineering’s miniature VS8 photoelectric sensor with blue LED works well with low reflectivity labels to detect refrigerated food packaged in pressurized cans. The small sensors fit into tight spaces and work well for short range applications. The blue LED works with the small spot size to minimize the effects of color transitions on the labels.

Adhesive Detection on PCB Assembly During the Assembly Process
Adhesive Detection on PCB Assembly During the Assembly Process

Banner Engineering’s miniature VS8 sensor fits atop a glue gun to accurately detect the presence of adhesive as it is being applied. The VS8 is taught the distance between glue gun and PCB and can detect the very small height distance after the adhesive gets applied and recognize if there are any gaps or bubbles. The miniature sensors fit into tight spaces common in electronics assembly.
