Kubler Slip Rings

The Construction is modular and offers the greatest flexibility in a variety of applications. Microbiologically perfect products are a vital condition for every food manufacturer - from the ingredients up to packaging. On packaging devices, slip rings are in charge of the rotary transmission of energy, signals and data between the stationary and the rotating platforms. The new Kubler SRI085 slip ring has been designed

QC50 Series

The easy-to-use QC50 series true color sensor uses modulated white light with red, green, and blue (R, G, B) electronic filters to scan for the presence of one, two or three colors. Its compact size allows it to be mounted almost anywhere. Configuration options include Programming mode for color detection parameters and Setup mode for selecting an adjustable output OFF-delay or selecting between two response speeds (some models).

If you are looking for Banner Color Sensors, please call us on (800) 894 - 0412 or email us at info@clrwtr.com we will do our best to help you find the Banner QCX50 switches that you are looking for at the most competitive prices possible. If you are searching for Banner QC50 Sensors technical information (data-sheets) please use the datasheets or product selection guide page links.

Three solid-state outputs may be set individually for color differentiation or for color-plus-intensity differentiation. The sensor has two push buttons, Set and Select, plus a 4-digit LED display, an Output LED, and three Output Status LEDs (one for each sensing output), for easy programming and status monitoring during operation. Push buttons can be locked out for security.

  • Two versions for application flexibility: QC50 models for most applications, and QCX50 models for more challenging applications
  • Compact, self-contained design
  • Analyzes and compares color to color, or varying intensities of one color
  • QCX50 models excel in challenging applications, such as differentiating dark bluefrom black
  • Fast sensing response time
    • QC50 models: 335 microseconds
    • QCX50 models: 5 ms (reduced resolution setting - 1 ms)
  • Easy-to-set programming options for 1, 2, or 3 colors
  • Three programming parameters: channel, sensing mode, and tolerance level
  • 10 tolerance levels to allow for product variation
  • Output OFF-delay (6 options); selection applies to all three color channels
  • Gate mode option (also called inhibiting, synchronization or windowing)

The QC50 can be programmed to sense one, two, or three colors. Three outputs are available for this purpose. When a programmed color is sensed, the yellow Output("OUT") indicator LED and the associated green Output Status LED turn ON, and the respective output conducts.

The Sensor functions in one of two sensing modes: Color only (expressed "C" on the 4-digit display) or Color-Plus-Intensity (expressed "C_I"). In Color sensing mode, only colors are sensed. This is most useful for sorting obvious color differences (for example, red or black or green). The Color-Plus-Intensity option refines the sensor's capabilities to include grayscale as well, broadening the spectrum of colors and shades which the sensor can be programmed to detect. This feature allows "batch" sorting or identifying within a color family (for example, light blue or medium blue or dark blue).

The Sensor can be configured for one of 10 levels of tolerance (0 to 9). A higher number (for example 9, expressed "toL9" on the 4-digit display) permits the sensor to accept a wider range of target conditions, compared with lower tolerance levels. A tolerance level of 0 (expressed "toL0") causes much more precise discrimination and a narrower range of target conditions.

An output OFF-delay value up to 40 milliseconds may be set (see page 5). This value represents the time interval, following termination of sensing, during which the outputs remain active (see Figure 3). NOTE: The selected delay will apply to all three outputs.

The QCX50 models feature two selectable sensing response speeds: Normal and Fast. At either speed, sensing resolution is improved over that of the QC50 models. The faster the speed, the lower the resolution. Normal speed is the recommended mode for most applications and provides the best resolution. Normal speed enables such high-resolution sensing as differentiating between similar shades of beige.
