Banner Engineering Q26 Luminescence Sensor

The new Q26 series luminescence sensor is a compact, cost-effective addition to Banner Engineering’s luminescence sensor line. It uses UV light to activate luminescent dyes, inks and surfaces in a target, enabling reliable detection of labels, adhesives, tamper resistant seals in consumer packaged goods, and other industrial applications. It has the same form factor as the Q26 clear object sensor and replaces Banner’s QL50 luminescence sensors.
