Detecting Different Size Packages on a Conveyor

One of the challenges when detecting sealed food packages along a conveyor is the detection of different sizes and positions of packages. The best solution is to line up multiple sensors underneath the conveyor to ensure any and all packages are detected.

Banner Engineering’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.

YOUR BENEFITS

  • Simple, cost-effective solution.
  • Built in resistance to fluorescent lights for easy machine integration.
  • The sensor small size makes it easy to integrate along the manufacturing line.

  • Detection of Different Size Packages on a Conveyor with Banner's S18-2 Barrel Sensor

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.

Banner's S18-2 barrel sensors have a highly visible output and dual-function power with a wide operating temperature range from -40 to +70° C. Available in Emitter/Receiver, Polarized Retroreflective, Retroreflective, Diffuse, and Fixed Field models.
