Photoelectric sensor series with fixed-field background suppression
Banner Engineering’s S18-2 compact photoelectric sensor series features fixed-field background suppression mode configurations and provides up to six detection ranges from 30 to 200 mm for cost-sensitive and high-volume applications. The S18-2 background suppression sensors are also resistant to fluorescent light and have a high level of crosstalk avoidance. They have a small red LED emitter beam for target alignment with small shifts in the detection range caused by target color variation.
The S18-2 sensors also feature 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. The ABS plastic housing allows the sensors to be sealed against water ingress and they have an operating range of -40 to +70 C.
