Minneapolis, MN – Banner Engineering Corp. introduces their R58A Series Registration Mark Sensors for detecting registration marks in printing and material registration applications often found in the web printing, product packaging and pharmaceutical industries. The R58A features simplified setup via potentiometer adjustment of the switching threshold and switch-selectable light/dark operate. The sensor’s short warm-up period, fast 10 kHz switching frequency and 15-microsecond repeatability ensure reliable detection in high-speed printing and web processing applications, where timing is critical.
The R58A’s excellent contrast sensitivity, coupled with its small 1.2 x 3.8 mm sensing image, enables the sensor to detect subtle registration marks on high-gloss and other challenging materials, as well as in low-contrast applications. Additionally, the rugged metal housing and high-quality acrylic lens are designed to handle ambient electrical noise and vibration from presses and die cutting machinery.
A single emitter color–red or green, specified by model number–ensures that the customer’s preferred light source is used every time. Banner also offers the more advanced R58E Expert Series Registration Mark Sensors with comprehensive TEACH options and three LED sensing colors–red, green and blue–in one sensor, allowing the user to optimize contrast based on the application.
