Banner Engineering is the world's leading manufacturer of sensors and releases hundreds of innovative, new products every year. Banner manufactures a variety of sensors, including the world's most complete line of Photoelectric Sensors - over 12,000 models including Fiber and Laser, as well as sensors for Measurement & Inspection and sensors for Specialty Applications.
Banner Engineering manufactures Photoelectric Sensors in four categories: Miniature, Compact, Midsize, and Full-Size. Miniature Photoelectric Sensors are extremely compact, conveniently fitting into limited spaces with barrel, rectangular and T-shaped housings. These sensors have high-power performance for close range detection up to 4 m. Compact Photoelectric Sensors are space-saving rectangular or barrel shaped sensors with powerful sensing beams for longer ranges and scanning distances up to 30 m. Midsize Photoelectric Sensors, available in a barrel or rectangular shape, work well for position sensing applications and process automation with a much larger sensing range (up to 60 m) and optimal detection. Full-Size Photoelectric Sensors have the longest sensing range with distances up to 200 m and operate with ac, dc, or ac/dc voltage.
Banner Fiber Optic Photoelectric Sensors are ideal for harsh conditions including high vibration, extreme heat, noisy, wet, corrosive or explosive environments. Fiber optic sensors are small enough to fit in confined areas and can be positioned precisely where needed with flexible fibers.
Banner's line of sensors for Measurement & Inspection includes Ultrasonic Sensors, Laser Sensors, and Radar Sensors. Ultrasonic Sensors use sound waves rather than light, making them ideal for stable detection of uneven surfaces, liquids, clear objects, and objects in dirty environments. These sensors work well for applications that require precise measurements between stationary and moving objects. Laser Sensors combine the alignment advantages of a visible sensing beam with the increased sensing range of a laser. They operate on dc or ac/dc (universal voltage). Class 1 and Class 2 devices are available. Radar Sensors use Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave (FMCW) radar to reliably detect moving or stationary targets, including cars, trains, trucks and cargo in extreme weather conditions.
Banner Engineering manufactures a wide variety of sensors for Specialty Applications, covering a range of industrial uses. Specialty Application Sensors include Optical Touch Buttons, Slot & Label Sensors, Registration Mark & Color Sensors, Temperature Sensors, and sensors for Part Sensing.
