Banner Engineering M18-4 Stainless Steel Barrel Sensors

The new M18-4 series from Banner Engineering builds on the S18-2 product development to create a heavy-duty and chemically resistant 18 mm metal barrel sensor to serve global factory automation markets. It features a robust IP69K rated 316 stainless steel housing suitable for many industrial environments where enhanced chemical resistance is a requirement.


  • Complete family of sensors, all housed in the popular 18 mm threaded metal barrel
  • Chemically robust stainless steel sensors for washdown applications
  • FDA grade materials and adhesives tested for compatibility with common cleaning chemicals
  • Robust housing is sealed against fluid ingress and chemical attack
  • Cost-effective stainless steel sensor with laser engraved identification – no labels to fall off
  • Powerful and bright visible red emitter beam for easy alignment and setup
  • Highly visible output and dual-function power and stability indicators
  • Advanced ASIC technology is resistant to fluorescent light, and offers a higher level of cross talk avoidance
  • Robust 250° adjustment potentiometer on select models
  • Greatly increased sensing range in all modes
  • Sensitivity pot on diffuse model
  • Widest operating temperature range (-40 to 70 °C) of comparable sensors
