The Best Sensor For Your Food Production!

Banner Engineering's T18-2 Series sensors are the next generation of self-contained photoelectric
sensors. Their IP69 epoxy encapsulated housing, ensures the strength and reliability and are ideal for use in washdown and thermal shock environments on food production lines.

To receive FDA approval, the T18-2 passed a ECOLAB test, in which, the sensor was submersed in a range of chemicals for 28 days. The plastic material ensure that the casing will not weaken by temperature cycling since it expands and contracts at the same rate and each product is ultrasonically welded.

Along with that, they have superior performance with better fluorescent light immunity, improved color sensitivity, and higher excess gain.

Key Features:
  • Shatter-resistant for use in the most rugged environments
  • IP69K epoxy encapsulated circuitry
  • Housing is made of all certified FDA-grade durable plastic
  • Sensor is ultrasonically welded together to create a single piece made of the same material, ideal for environments with rapidly changing temperatures
  • Smooth, improved design for a more hygienic sensor
  • Complete sealed and leak-proof construction

Detection That Can Save You Money

Manufacturing facilities know the expenses of equipment repairs and production downtime, but what if you could take a proactive approach to prevent both as well as keep costs down? Prime Controls has developed a solution that can prevent a $20,000 to $100,000 repair!

In most equipment, if more than one sheet is fed into the machine, it damages tools and dies. That is why for over 25 years Prime Controls have made Double Sheet Detection an essential component of manufacturing. The sensors protect machinery by ensuring that only one sheet of metal is entering into a process. 

The Double Sheet Detection is perfect for automation, robotics, automated destackers, sheet feeders, and in-fixture (poke-a-yoke) applications. Along with that, the solution is perfect for the canmaking, automotive, appliance, and other metal forming industries.

The Double Sheet Detection can easily be set up and they can sense a wide range of metals, such as:
  • Steel
  • Copper
  • Aluminum
