Banner Engineering’s VS8 Miniature Photoelectric Sensor with blue LED is a unique problem-solver. The blue LED works well with low-reflectivity objects and multicolored packaging by creating more contrast for stable sensing. The VS8’s small spot size minimizes the effects of color transitions as the package passes by the sensor. The blue LED with small spot size alleviated the chattering output and sensing problems and created a more reliable system for the customer.
Small sensors with shorter sensing ranges are ideal as more machine builders compress mechanical features into tight spaces. The VS8 is miniature in size, measuring just 21 mm x 14 mm x 8 mm, but remains a high-quality, versatile sensor that does not compromise performance in crowded working spaces with limited mounting options. The brackets are adjustable up to 15 degrees in either direction for ease-of-use and flexibility. The VS8 is CE, UL, and ECOLAB certified and rated to IP67. Setup is easy with remote teach and push buttons with lock-out functionality and background suppression to ignore anything beyond the target, such as a conveyor belt.
