Banner offers a wide selection of cables, reflectors, and more that simplifies installation and optimizes sensor performance. Choosing the best accessories adds versatility to application solutions.
Wireless antennas transmit radio signals by converting radio frequency electrical currents into electromagnetic waves. Antennas receive the signals by converting the waves back into radio frequency electrical currents. They can function in air, space, under water or liquid, and through solid matter for limited distances.
Banner Engineering offers several configuration tools to facilitate product setup and programming. These tools enable quick and easy commissioning of supported products, and they also make it easy to update settings as needed via intuitive user interfaces.
Quick-disconnect cordsets allow sensor, lighting and safety devices to be replaced or moved quickly and are available in both single- and double-ended models. For added versatility or challenging applications, splitters, cables, and field wireable connectors are available to complete your system.
Banner offers a wide range of enclosures designed to protect sensors, safety, vision, and wireless products from harmful environments when exposure could potentially impact performance.
Fiber optic systems are typically used in harsh conditions, including high vibration, extreme heat, and noisy, wet, corrosive or explosive environments. Fibers are also used in confined areas since many models can be bent to fit precisely where needed.
Glass fibers are mostly used in challenging environments, such as applications with high temperatures, corrosive materials or moisture. Plastic fibers are typically used for more general purpose applications where they can tolerate extreme bending and be cut to length to fit in limited space setups.
Muting is the automatic suspension of the safeguarding function of a safety device during the non-hazardous portion of a machine cycle. This capability enables a continuous work flow by allowing predetermined objects to enter or exit the hazardous area without bringing a halt to operations.
Muting kits for safety light devices make it easy to add muting capabilities to an application. All the necessary hardware and sensors are provided in a pre-assembled kit that connects directly to a safety light curtain or safety grid system.
Banner offers a complete line of reflector and target accessories to fit different application needs. Made from acrylic, ceramic, and high-temperature materials, they come in various shapes or as adhesive tape on sheets or rolls. Typical maximum temperatures on reflector accessories range from 50° to 480° C.
Type 4 safety light curtains protect personnel from injury and machines from damage by guarding points of operation, access, areas and perimeters. Type 2 safety light curtains are a cost-effective light curtain safety solution for guarding lower-risk applications, where the result of an accident is only a slight injury.
Vision products combine high-performance tools, intelligent features, and an intuitive user interface for automated inspection applications. The vision systems are easy to use and customizable for specific machines and tasks. Adding vision lenses to industrial applications enhances overall performance and provides accurate detection for a wide variety of vision applications.
Vision lighting is the key to creating all-important contrast between the feature of interest and its background.
