Detecting Different Size Packages on a Conveyor
Banner’s S18-2 barrel sensor is a cost-effective, reliable sensing method for this type of application. Its small size makes it easy to integrate along the manufacturing line, and its competitive price means it is well-suited for applications requiring multiple sensors. With a powerful and bright visible red emitter beam, the S18 sensors are easy to align during set up.
The S18-2 barrel sensors’ Advanced ASIC (Application Specific Integrated Circuit) technology make them resistant to fluorescent light and offer a higher level of crosstalk avoidance, which is ideal since the sensors need to be lined up one by one to sense the different sizes and positions of boxes.
S18-2 barrel sensors have a highly visible output and dual-function power with a wide operating temperature range from -40 to +70° C.
