Banner Engineering R58B Series registration mark sensor reduces complexity of TEACH process.
Banner Engineering Corp. introduces the new R58B Series Expert Registration Mark Sensor, featuring a simplified teach process. TEACH allows the sensor to “learn” the light and dark sensing conditions, based on user inputs, and then can automatically adjust the sensitivity to place the operating threshold midway between threshold for the light and dark condition.
During the TEACH process, the R58B automatically selects a red, green or blue LED to optimize the application contrast. Then, the selected color is indicated on the user interface, upon which the customer-specified color can be set from push buttons or a PLC compatible remote input.
The R58B detects 16 levels of gray scale and features 10 kHZ switching frequency (10,0000 actuations per second). In addition, its smart gain-control algorithm maximizes performance in low-contrast or high-gloss applications. The R58B is cased in an IP67-rated, zinc alloy die-cast housing with high-quality acrylic lens, making it ideally suited for food processing applications. A single output configuration is available (PNP or NPN by model).
