Monitoring Flow of Transparent Plastic Bottles on a Conveyor

Clear Plastic Bottle Detection Image

Application: Monitor conveyor to ensure there are no stuck bottles

Challenges: Sensing field covers a large amount of area

Solution: The Clear Plastic EZ-ARRAY

Benefits: Monitors a larger area than single point sensors

To ensure that when bottles are placed on the conveyor, there is not a downed or stuck bottle in the placement area. This prevents damage to the bottle handling equipment, as well as potential jams further down the conveyor.


Banner’s Clear Plastic EZ-ARRAY is designed to monitor an area of the conveyor that single point sensors cannot. With its polarized technology, discrete outputs can be used as an alarm to notify the bottle handling equipment controls that there is an obstruction on the conveyor. (Models featuring clear plastic technology are designated with “CP” in the model number, for example EA5E150CPQ or EA5R150xxxMODCPQ)

EZ-ARRAY excels at high-speed, precise process monitoring and inspection, profiling and web-guiding applications with quick and simple installation. Applications include edge and center-guiding, loop tension control, hole sizing, parts counting and on-the-fly product sizing and profiling. Closely spaced infrared beams detect objects as small as 5 mm wide edge resolution is 2.5 mm. Controller functionality is built into the receiver, so basic setup requires no controller, software, or PC. IO-Link, Modbus-RTU, and RS-485 models are available.
