Banner Engineering M18-3 Photoelectric Barrel Sensors

Banner Engineering announces the new M18-3 series of nickel-plated brass photoelectric sensors.  Housed in the common 18 mm diameter barrel shape, these sensors present enhanced features while being competitively priced to serve global factory automation markets requiring high volume, low cost sensors.


  • Cost effective nickel plated brass housing is well protected against industrial fluids and mechanical damage
  • Greatly increased sensing range in all modes
  • Advanced ASIC (Application Specific Integrated Circuit) technology is resistant to fluorescent light and offer higher level of crosstalk avoidance
  • Powerful and bright visible red emitter beam for easy alignment and set-up
  • Highly visible output and dual-function power and stability indicators
  • Wide operating temperature range: -40 to 70° C
  • Robust 250° sensitivity potentiometer on diffuse and some polarized retro models
  • M18-3NAEJ-2M emitters feature beam inhibit to allow the sensing beam to be turned ON/OFF as needed
