Banner Releases New Short Range Q3X Models With Background Suppression

Banner Introduces New 150 and 200 mm Q3X Models With Background Suppression

The new 150 and 200 mm Q3X models solve challenging part-detection applications with small contrast differences. Q3X sensors are easy to set up and their metal housing withstand harsh environments. These sensors can also be programmed for low contrast detection within the teachable sensing range while ignoring objects in the background. Due to its rugged metal housing, three-digit display for easy to read feedback, and versatility in solving challenging part-detection applications, the Q3X expands the types of applications Banner can solve. 

  • Solves challenging part-detection applications with small contrast differences
  • High-speed part detection as fast as 2,000 events per second
  • Angled three-digit display is easily viewed from multiple vantage points
  • Display provides clear user feedback for easy setup, and bright output indicator provides high visibility of sensor operation
  • Rated to IP67, IP68, and IP69K
  • Robust immunity to fluorescent light interference
  • Rugged, nickel-plated zinc, laser-marked housing suitable for use even in environments where cutting fluids and oils might be present

Custom Lighting From Smart Vision Lights

Smart Vision Lights' Custom Light Adds Flexibility to Multi-Product Pharmaceutical Blister Packaging Lines

TL305, A Custom On-Off Axis LED light

Smart Vision Lights is featured in a recent Healthcare Packaging magazine article on custom lighting of blister packaging lines. Contract pharmaceutical packager PCI, which specializes in multiple package configurations on a variety of blister packaging lines, needed the right light architecture to optimize its machine vision inspection. Smart Vision Lights met the challenge by developing the TL305, a custom on-off axis LED light that provides extremely intense and diffused multidimensional light for highly reflective surfaces.

Smart Vision Lights' Projector Can Do Virtually Any 2D Pattern

OverDrive ODSXP30

Smart Vision Lights' LED projectors use patterns and optics to provide a focused structured light. Any custom pattern shape can be easily supplied, integrated, and projected. Larger sink housings on select models make them significantly brighter than other lights. The new OverDrive ODSXP30 is 3 times brighter than previous models. These lights are available in white, red, amber, blue, green, cyan, IR, and UV. Like the entire line of SVL lights, ODSXP30 includes an integrated constant current driver with built-in strobe input with option for PNP and NPN trigger control.

Sensors For The Stamp and Die, Metal Forming, and Welding Environments

Turck Announces The Addition of a Compact Stainless Steel Housed Sensor to Its Line of Q08 Sensors

Turck announces the addition of a compact stainless steel housed sensor to its line of Q08 sensors. The stainless steel Q08F provides customers with a robust sensor alternative where standard Q08 sensors would not be suitable, or where a more durable sensor could minimize downtime and alleviate trouble areas for customers.

The rectangular sensor offers compact housing, is made from 316 stainless steel, and offers an IP68/69K rating. The sensor provides a 7mm sensing range and can be flush mounted to offer a wide range of mounting and application possibilities. With these features, the stainless steel Q08F is an ideal solution for customers in the stamp and die, metal forming, welding, and automotive industries where durability and reliability are a must.
