Banner LM Series Sensor

Compact Precision Laser Measurement Sensor

The LM offers best-in-class performance with superior stability, reliability, and precision for real-world targets. With the introduction of the LM, Banner has developed the optional Remote Sensor Display (RSD) for simplified sensor set up, recipe control, and configuration storage.

Key Benefits

PRECISE MEASUREMENT

The LM provides reliable quality and process control with 0.004 mm resolution and repeatably measures real-world targets with varying colors and reflectivity.

HIGH-SPEED

With response speeds as fast as 0.5 ms, the LM can reliably solve high-speed applications with fast-moving targets.

REAL-WORLD STABILITY

LM sensors feature a thermally stable design that resists temperature changes, as well as enhanced mounting stability, for high accuracy in the toughest environments. The LM has a temperature effect of +/-0.008 mm/°C. This is imperative for high precision applications since even a few degrees of temperature change can cause other sensors’ measurement error to double.

QUICK SETUP AND REPLACEMENT

The optional RSD remote display stores up to 6 configurations for product changeover and easy device replacement.

The LM Series precision measurement sensor offers best-in-class performance and real-world stability in a compact device with an intuitive user experience.

  • Precise measurements with 0.004 mm resolution
  • Fast 0.5 ms response speed and 0.25 ms sampling rate
  • Compact housing designed to fit into small spaces
  • Thermally stable housing and secure mounting for real-world stability
  • Discrete with IO-Link, and 4-20 mA analog output
  • IP67 and Grade 316 stainless steel for chemical compatibility
  • Optional Remote Sensor Display (RSD) for remote monitoring and setup

Applications

The LM Series Sensor and RSD Remote Sensor Display can be used in a wide variety of measurement applications, including:

  • Precise part inspection
  • Assembly and accuracy checks
  • Dimensional control
  • Product position control
  • PCB warp inspection
  • Correct product placement
  • Thickness and height measurement

LM sensors monitor real-time changes in material thickness. The 0.004 mm resolution can detect very small changes in thickness. The extremely linear output of the LM is imperative when measuring long rolls of product. In addition, thermal stability ensures reliable performance in this environment.

The LM sensor measures crankshaft runout to make sure it is within the manufacturer’s tolerance. The accuracy of the LM sensor ensures that parts meet tighter tolerances with fewer missed defects. High measurement speeds allow the LM to better identify a problem on fast moving parts while reducing the time required for inspections.

The LM sensor measures changes in both distance and light intensity to verify the presence and orientation of circuit chips seated in nests. The LM’s precision allows it to identify very small height differences to determine when chips are not seated completely, while the dual teach mode can verify that the chip is right side up.
