Banner Engineering Corp. has produced ultraminiature sensors that can fit and function in confined areas. The VS2 series of convergent-mode sensors utilize a visible red sensing beam to provide a 15- or 30-mm range, repeatability of 160 µs and an output response of 1 ms. They are smaller than a postage stamp and only 3.6 mm thick. The sensors can replace remote and fiber optic devices in machinery such as microelectronic handling equipment, vibratory feeders and punch presses.
