Banner Engineering’s Vantage Line of fiber optics are designed to complement its fiber amplifier product family. They feature a 304 stainless steel tube and the polyethylene jacketed plastic fiber is protected from crushing or abrasion in harsh industrial environments. The fiber optics are designed for a range of industries and applications including small part or wire break detection on electronics assembly machines, pill and caplet counting, and high-speed detection for registration mark or product leading edge detection. The Vantage Line plastic fibers are available in eight models, four with opposed sensing mode and four with diffuse sensing mode in one- and two-meter options. All fibers are compatible with Banner’s existing plastic fiber amplifiers, including the DF-G family. The DF-G fiber amplifiers feature dual display, digital readouts and an improved fiber clamp. The amplifiers also allow the user to manipulate all operating parameters, including switch point threshold, light operate or dark operate, various output timing functions, electronic gain level, and sensor response speed.
