SLE5 series label sensor

June 2020 System Integration & Control Systems Design

The small infrared light spot of Banner’s new SLE5 can quickly detect the gap between opaque labels on clear or opaque backing. The 5 mm slot width and 50 mm slot depth allow precise detection of a wide variety of products, including multilayer booklet labels. The SLE5 can detect as small as a 0,5 mm minimum label or gap width. The 40 µs response speed (12,5 kHz switching frequency) increases position accuracy and ensures precise detection and placement on fast moving production lines.

Easy to use

The SLE5 can be taught via single teach button or remote teach wire and can be configured to detect the label or the backing paper based on teach order. Teach mode can be performed either statically or dynamically at speeds up to 20 metres per minute. Highly visible green and amber status LEDs confirm that the teach was accepted and display the current output status.

The compact housing makes it easy to install in the dispensing ledge. The dovetail mounting option is designed for simple installation directly on machines, no tools required. In addition, standard M5 mounting holes are available for maximum versatility. Models are available with 2 m cables or integral M8 connector and with NPN or PNP output.

Applications include processing and packaging machinery and automatic labellers.
