Banner has introduced its R58A Series Registration Mark Sensors for detecting registration marks in printing and material registration applications found in the web printing, product packaging and pharmaceutical industries.

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.

The R58A’s contrast sensitivity, enables the sensor to detect subtle registration marks on high gloss and other challenging materials, as well as in low contrast applications.

The rugged zinc alloy die cast housing with high quality acrylic lens can handle ambient electrical noise and vibration from presses and die cutting machinery. It is suitable for food processing applications and is rated IP67.
