Banner Engineering Corp. has introduced the iVu Series TG Image Sensor, which combines the simplicity of a photoelectric sensor with the intelligence of a vision sensor to deliver inspection capabilities. Reportedly the first sensor with touchscreen, the iVu allows even first-time users to apply and support inspections right on the factory floor, without the use of a PC, vision software, or other external equipment. Suggested applications include label inspection, part presence and orientation, and more. The unit combines three advanced sensor types in one compact, rugged package. Features include:

68.5 mm (2.7-in.) LCD touch screen display;

Integrated or external lighting (red, blue, green or infrared options);

Software emulator to program the iVu offline and load parameters using the onboard USB port;

752 x 480 CMOS imager;

Adjustable focus lenses; and

Inspection and system logging for rapid analysis.

Separately, Banner introduced the M24U model to its U-Gage line of ultrasonic sensors. These opposed-mode ultrasonic sensor pairs, constructed of heavy-duty 316 stainless steel, are specifically designed for use in sanitary environments. They are rated IP69K, IP67 (NEMA 6) and have a smooth barrel housing free of threads, gaps or seams that could accumulate debris. www.bannerengineering.com
