S18-2 Compact Photoelectric Sensors

Minneapolis, MN—Banner Engineering introduces its next-generation S18-2 compact photoelectric sensor series. These self-contained, DC-operated sensors provide an economical sensing solution for cost-sensitive and high-volume installations. Built with Advanced ASIC (Application Specific Integrated Circuit) technology, the diffuse mode S18-2 sensors are resistant to fluorescent light and offer a high level of crosstalk avoidance.

Banner S18-2 sensors feature a powerful and bright visible red emitter beam that reaches up to 25 meters (82 feet), which allows for easy alignment and set-up. For ease of use, the S18-2 sensors also offer a highly visible output, and dual-function power and stability indicators. The indicators are comprised of one green and two yellow LED lights. Solid green indicates power is applied and the sensor is ready, while green flashing specifies a marginal sensing signal. The two bright yellow LEDs, visible from both sides of the sensor, indicate the output is conducting.

“In today's competitive automation markets, reliable sensing is crucial for maintaining product quality and machine productivity,” said Dennis Smith, Technical Marketing Manager, Banner Engineering. “Banner's S18-2 photoelectric sensors are designed to provide reliable sensing performance at a competitive price point to meet our customers’ need for high-speed automation and non-contact sensing.”

Featuring a rugged ABS plastic housing, the S18-2 sensors are well sealed against water ingress. A wide operating temperature range of -40 to +70 degrees Celsius ensures optimal performance for diverse applications. For increased flexibility, diffuse models provide a robust 250 sensitivity potentiometer.
