Potential Applications

  • Package Dimension Measuring
    Package Dimension Measuring To measure height, length and width of boxes for storage and to collect cubing information for shipping, a laser measurement array can be utilized. Cartons moving on a conveyor pass between three pairs of measuring light curtains. The total number of beams blocked for each pair indicates the size, which is sent to a sorter as an analog signal. A PLC then diverts each carton to the appropriate storage location.

  • Banner Engineering EZ-ARRAY Product Family
    Banner Engineering EZ-ARRAY Product Family Used for applications that include edge and center guiding, loop tension control, hole sizing, parts counting and on-the-fly product sizing and profiling. Closely spaced infrared beams detect objects as small as 5 mm wide; edge resolution is 2.5 mm. The controller functionality is built into the receiver, so basic setup requires no controller, software or PC. The emitter / receiver range is 4 meters and array heights range from 150 to 2400 mm.

    The High-Resolution MINI-ARRAY excels at high speed, precise process monitoring and inspection applications. Available heights range from 163 to 1951 mm. Closely spaced beams detect objects as small as 2.5 mm. The emitters and receivers can be spaced up to 1.8 m apart. The controllers can be configured for a variety of measurement modes, scan modes and output configurations.

    The MINI-ARRAY is a low-profile light screen pairs designed for profiling and inspections. The emitter / receiver pair are available in heights ranging from 133 to 1819 mm. Depending on the model's beam spacing, the array detects objects as small as 19 to 38 mm. Emitters and receivers can be up to 6 m apart or up to 17 m apart, epending on model. Configuration options include blanking, sensitivity and scanning mode. Controllers are available with DeviceNet™ compatible output.
