Banner Engineering's LTF Time-of-Flight Laser Sensors Just Got Even Better!

Banner Engineering's L-GAGE LTF Laser Sensors are now available in extended range models. These extended range models are able to detect and inspect objects from up to 24 m away without the use of a retroreflector, while still achieving accuracy error of less than 1% of range and less than 25 mm of accuracy error when using a white target. Considered an affordable alternative to sensors with similar range capabilities, they offer greater range capabilities than similarly priced time-of-flight sensors.

Key Features:

  • The extended 24 m range allows the LTF Series sensors to be used to solve many applications that previously were primarily solved by more expensive sensors specifically designed for long distances
  • Installation and maintenance is simplified - diffuse mode sensing eliminates the need for a retroreflective target
  • Users are able to begin inspecting more quickly with no downtime to service targets
  • The two-line, eight-character display and pushbutton programming facilitate sensor setup and troubleshooting, enabling real-time distance measuring and application monitoring
  • Durable IP67 housing, high ambient light immunity, and stable performance across temperatures
  • Reliable performance in many challenging environments
  • Models featuring IO-Link communication have powerful advanced features, including remote configuration, remote monitoring, and extended diagnostics

A New Generation of Hollow Bore Motors From Stober!

Stober has released its next generation of hollow bore motors. Due to the flange-mount hollow bore, these motors are ideal for passing cables, tooling, and pipes through the motor. They're available as direct drive or with an integrated planetary gear for ratios of 3,9, or 27:1. The compact design allows for minimum space between rolls/spindles. There are several mounting options available, including flange, shrink ring, and coupling. Other options for this series include magnetic brake, water or forced air cooling, and manual handwheel. The ball screw version is designed to directly rotate the ball screw nut as the shaft of the ball screw passes through the motor. The motor produces powerful torque and high stiffness with a low total weight, making it ideal for applications where the motor is also moving. 

Stober's servo motors include dynamic motors with sensors that allow for precise control of angular or linear position, velocity, and acceleration in a compact and small package. Due to the use of high-quality components, Stober's motors are considered highly efficient while also reducing operating costs. Stober offers both high and low servo motors to fit unique applications. They're able to mount directly to gearboxes, eliminating a motor coupling, adapter, coupling housing, or additional input seals and bearings.

Illuminate Equipment and Work Spaces With Banner's Professional Grade LED Strip Lights

The WLS15 from Banner Engineering is a professional grade LED strip light that provides years of bright, even illumination with no hot spots. They're an easy and cost-effective solution for illuminating equipment and work spaces while providing improved efficiency, productivity, and safety. The WLS15 is installed easily in just a few minutes and its sleek, low-profile design allows it to fit into tight spaces.

  • Compact, Low-Profile Design: The slim, space-saving 15 mm profile of the WLS15 enables installation in confined areas without disrupting the work environment, or obstructing sightlines.
  • Rugged IP67 Construction: Built with a sturdy aluminum inner frame and sealed in a shatter resistant, UV-stabilized, polycarbonate shell. The WLS15 is able to resist impact and vibration and will tolerate wet and dirty conditions for reliable use in challenging indoor and outdoor environments.
  • Easy Installation: The ability to cascade lights together, combined with flexible mounting options, simplifies installation and wiring and makes it easy to deploy and power one or multiple lights within a short amount of time.
