Courtesy: Banner EngineeringBanner Engineering's DF-G3 discrete long-range fiber amplifier has dual digital displays for use with plastic and glass fiber optic assemblies. The DF-G3 can sense more than 3 m (10 ft) with opposed mode fibers or more than 1 m (3 ft) with diffuse mode fibers and can detect dark targets at long range. It also features enhanced detection sensitivity when using specialty fiber assemblies for large area and small part detection applications. The DF-G3 is available with a single discrete output or two dual discrete outputs. The dual discrete outputs can be independently taught to trigger at different intensity values, which is useful for correct part-in-place or error-proofing, bottle down, and edge guiding applications.

Users can also setup the sensor remotely via a multi-function input wire. The wire
can be configured to control the LED, gate the amplifier's output, remote teach the amplifier, or setup a cross-talk avoidance ring with up to seven amplifiers to solve dense sensing point applications. Users also have full control over all operating parameters, including threshold, light or dark operate, output timing functions, gain level and response speed.
