Banner Engineering DF-G1 Expert Dual Display Fiber Amplifier

A focus on a simple set-up and configuration, stable performance, and competitive pricing guided Banner Engineering’s development of the DF-G1 Expert Dual Display Fiber Amplifier. An updated mechanical design, with an improved fiber clamp and a sleek look-and-feel, makes the DF-G1 a compelling upgrade to the D10 product line.


  • Easy to read dual digital displays show both signal level and threshold simultaneously
  • Lever action fiber clamp provides stable, reliable, and trouble free fiber clamping
  • Simple user interface ensures easy sensor set-up and programming via displays and switches, remote input teach wire, or IO-Link (coming soon)
  • Expert TEACH and SET methods ensure optimal gain and threshold for all applications, especially low contrast applications
  • User has full control over all operating parameters: switch point threshold, Light Operate or Dark Operate, output timing functions, gain level, and response speed
  • Thermally stable electronics minimize warm-up drift and reduce the effect of side-by-side mounting of multiple fiber amplifiers
  • Multiple amplifiers can be mounted side-by-side with no reduction in maximum operating temperature
  • ECO (economy) display mode reduces amplifier power consumption by 25%
  • Cross talk avoidance algorithm allows two fiber assemblies to operate in close proximity for many applications
  • Response speeds of: 200 μs (High Speed), 500 μs (Standard Speed), 2 ms (Long Range), and 5 ms (Extra Long Range) allow operator to optimize for fast or long distance applications
  • High performance 32 bit microprocessor with a 12 bit ADC
  • Sleek 10 mm wide housing mounts to standard 35 mm DIN rail
  • Visible red LED sensing beam for easy alignment to the target
  • Banner’s extensive experience developing custom fiber assemblies and advanced detection algorithms
