Compact photoelectric sensor series has emitter beam for easy setup
Banner Engineering’s S18-2 compact photoelectric sensor series are self-contained, dc-operated sensors built with Advanced ASIC (Application Specific Integrated Circuit) technology. The diffuse mode S18-2 sensors are resistant to fluorescent light and offer a high level of crosstalk avoidance.
Banner S18-2 sensors feature a powerful and bright visible red emitter beam that reaches up to 25 m (82 ft), which allows for easy alignment and set-up. For ease of use, the S18-2 sensors also offer a highly visible output, and dual-function power and stability indicators. The indicators are comprised of one green and two yellow LED lights. Solid green indicates power is applied and the sensor is ready, while green flashing specifies a marginal sensing signal. The two bright yellow LEDs, visible from both sides of the sensor, indicate the output is conducting.
Featuring a rugged ABS plastic housing, the S18-2 sensors are well sealed against water ingress. A wide operating temperature range of -40 to +70 degrees Celsius ensures optimal performance for diverse applications. For increased flexibility, diffuse models provide a robust 250° sensitivity potentiometer.
