Background Suppression Sensors offer plug-and-play usability.

Press Release Summary:

WORLD-BEAM® QS18FF Sensors are available in preprogrammed models for 50 or 100 mm fixed-field sensing ranges. They will only detect objects within preset range, ignoring all others outside range. Visible red spot generated by sensor's LED facilitates target positioning by providing visual confirmation of exact target point. Units feature 10-30 Vdc supply voltage, NPN or PNP outputs, LED status indicators, and fully-sealed, 18 mm housing.

Low-Cost Background Suppression Sensors Deliver Plug-And-Play Usability

Minneapolis, MN-April 21, 2004-Banner Engineering Corp. Banner Engineering Corp. has announced new WORLD-BEAM® QS18FF background suppression sensors that are ready to use "right out of the box". Users can select from preprogrammed models for 50 mm (2") or 100 mm (4") fixed-field sensing ranges where the sensors will only detect objects within their preset sensing range and ignore all others outside the range regardless of the object's surface reflectivity. And, because the QS18FF sensors do not contain any adjustment push buttons, DIP switches or knobs, they are less at risk for any tampering or altering. Users simply mount the sensor so that the target will pass within the predefined sensing range and they are ready to begin operating. Also, especially significant is the QS18FF's highly competitive $69.00 price!

"Banner's new WORLD-BEAM QS18FF sensors are an exceptionally flexible and affordable fixed-field sensing solution with clear superiority over any other available compact background suppression product on the market today," said Joe Dolinsky, Technical Manager for Banner's photoelectric products. "With a small form factor, convenient mounting options and low cost, this is an easy to apply solution for accurate sensing in confined applications such as on packaging or assembly equipment and small conveyors and feeder bowls -making it ideal for the semiconductor, pharmaceutical, packaging and material handling markets," Dolinsky added. A visible red spot generated by the sensor's high power output LED makes target positioning quick and easy by providing a visual confirmation of the exact target point to be sensed.

An addition to Banner's already extensive QS18 product offering, the QS18FF models share many of the same features and attributes that have made this product family so successful. Features include 10 to 30V dc supply voltage and the highly versatile and compact fully-sealed 18 mm WORLD-BEAM housing that offers convenient mounting options via its threaded-nose or side-mounting holes. These robust little sensors also feature excellent EMI, RFI & optical noise immunity, NPN or PNP outputs, LED status indicators visible from 360°, a wide assortment of mounting and protective brackets as well as a range of cable options including integral Pico-style and Euro-style quick-disconnect connectors.
