Minneapolis, MN - September 23, 2014 - Banner Engineering has expanded its L-Gage LE family of laser sensors with the new LE250. Optimized for measurements ranging from 100 mm to 400 mm, the LE250 features superior measurement precision and a small laser spot size.
The sensor’s linear array allows for reliable detection and measurement across a wide range of difficult targets, from black rubber to shiny metal. With a resolution of 0.02 mm out to 250 mm and a resolution below 0.2 mm out to 400 mm, the LE250 provides the repeatability and accuracy for solving applications where precise dimensional measurements or positioning are needed.
The Banner LE250 also features a smaller spot size, approximately one millimeter, which is ideal for small part detection, and provides more consistent measurements for applications that present varying colors, including multicolored packaging.
“Designed with the same robust housing, intuitive user interface and linear array technology as our LE550 sensor, the LE250 offers the performance features our customers have come to depend on,” said Brad Ragozzino, Technical Marketing Engineer, Banner Engineering. “However, with the smaller beam size and better resolution, the LE250 allows our customers to solve a wider range of applications.”
The LE250 operates with an intuitive two-line, eight-character display, allowing for easy readability, quick adjustments and simple menu navigation. The visible red, Class 2 laser beam and small spot size ensure quick setup and alignment. Features like delay timers and averaging trigger functions can reduce PLC programming time and help get an inspection up and running sooner. The LE250 is also available with an optional metal, rotatable connector and multiple mounting bracket options, allowing operators to save time and money while accommodating flexible application requirements.
Enclosed in a rugged, die-cast zinc housing and IP67-rated polycarbonate lens cover, the LE250 ensures optimal performance in demanding environments. All models meet Military Standard 202 G requirements method 201A, in addition to IEC 60947-5-2, to withstand applications subject to vibration or shock.
