PACK Expo - INTRODUCING THE T18-2 FROM BANNER ENGINEERING: EXTREMELY DURABLE PHOTOELECTRIC SENSORS FOR WASHDOWN AND THERMAL SHOCK ENVIRONMENTS

The new T18-2 Series features an FDA-grade shatterproof plastic housing and is IP69K rated and ECOLAB™ certified to protect against water ingress and chemical washdown. Furthermore, the sensors smooth surface and minimal crevices ensure easy cleaning.

MINNEAPOLIS, MN, September 6, 2018 - Banner Engineering, a leading provider of technology for industrial automation, today announced the release of the T18-2 Series photoelectric sensors for reliable presence detection in harsh washdown and thermal shock environments.


The new T18-2 Series features an FDA-grade shatterproof plastic housing and is IP69K rated and ECOLAB™ certified to protect against water ingress and chemical washdown. Furthermore, the sensors smooth surface and minimal crevices ensure easy cleaning.

In addition, the T18-2 housing is fully epoxy encapsulated to eliminate internal air cavities that can lead to condensation inside sensors during temperature cycling. The all-plastic sensor also features ultrasonically-welded joints for a durable seal that can withstand thermal shock with greater reliability than comparable metal sensors. This ensures reliable operation in temperatures ranging from -40 to +70 °C.

Sensor setup and alignment are made simple thanks to a bright, visible red emitter (all models except infrared). The highly visible output and dual-function power and stability indicators make the sensors easy to use and troubleshoot.

The new T18-2 is ideal for harsh environments such as meat or dairy processing, food and beverage processing and packaging, and cold storage applications.
