Banner Distance Sensors by Banner Sensor

Banner offers the world’s most complete line of photoelectric sensors – over 12,000. We supply sensors to virtually all the manufacturing companies in the Fortune 500.

Laser diode sensors combine the alignment advantages of a visible sensing beam with the increased sensing range of a laser. Devices are available with either Class 1 or Class 2 lasers.

Laser measurement sensors from Banner Engineering solve a wide variety of discrete sensing applications. Our portfolio of laser sensors includes powerful problem solving, high accuracy, and long range sensors that are also available with IO-Link communication. Compare the discrete sensors below to find the right solution for your application.

IO-Link sensors provide visibility into your operations and enable advanced, data-driven decision making. The ability to monitor sensor outputs, receive real-time status alerts, and adjust settings from virtually anywhere allows you to identify and resolve problems that arise on the sensor level in a timely manner.
