Banner’s EZ-ARRAY measuring light curtains detect items as small as 5 mm wide with an edge resolution of 2.5 mm, and have high excess gain for detecting opaque objects. These features allow for reliable detection and measurement of packages that pass through the light curtains.
The total number of beams blocked for each pair indicates the size, which is sent to a sorter as an analog signal. A PLC then diverts each carton to the appropriate storage location.
The EZ-ARRAY light screens are rugged and cost-effective for carton dimensioning. The light screens are easy to install and have a simple setup with remote TEACH programming. The controller functionality is built into the receiver, so basic setup requires no controller, software or PC.
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.Read More
