Banner Engineering introduces DF-G3 detection sensor

December 8, 2015—Banner Engineering introduces DF-G3 discrete long-range fiber amplifier with dual digital displays for use with plastic and glass fiber optic assemblies. The DF-G3 can sense more than 3 meters (10 ft.) with opposed mode fibers or more than 1 meter (3 ft.) with diffuse mode fibers. This provides increased detection reliability for dark targets at long range and enhanced detection sensitivity when using specialty fiber assemblies for large area and small part detection applications.

The DF-G3 is available with a single discrete output or two dual discrete outputs. The dual discrete outputs can be independently taught to trigger at different intensity values, which is ideal for correct part-in-place or error-proofing, bottle down, and edge guiding applications.

Users can also setup the sensor remotely via a multi-function input wire which can be configured to control the LED, gate the amplifier’s output, remote teach the amplifier, or setup a robust cross-talk avoidance ring with up to seven amplifiers to solve dense sensing point applications. The DF-G3 offers a simple interface to ensure easy setup and programming via displays and switches. The easy-to-read dual digital displays show both signal level and threshold simultaneously. 

With expert TEACH and SET functions, the DF-G3 ensures optimal gain and threshold for all applications, but especially for low-contrast applications at long detection range. Users also have full control over all operating parameters, including threshold, light or dark operate, output timing functions, gain level and response speed.

Featuring energy-efficient light resistance, the DF-G3 provides stable detection in industrial lighting environments. The sensor’s level action fiber clamp ensures stable, reliable and trouble-free fiber clamping.
