Banner Engineering (Minneapolis, MN) introduced the ZMX series 3D Time of Flight Sensor. This provides an ideal single-sensor solution for monitoring the volume of materials, products or packages that are routed to fill a bin or similar container.

Factories, warehouses, and distribution centers that use containers for accumulation of items can install a Banner ZMX sensor above the bin to monitor fill level to avoid overfill, package damage, or shipping empty space.

Features include:

  • Combining digital imaging and thousands of laser measurement points
  • Calculating volume of packages in a bin
  • Tracking the peak height of objects within a user-defined area
  • Large 60° × 45° field of view
  • Range of 200 to 2,500 mm (7.9 in. to 8.2 ft.)

The ZMX 3D Time of Flight Sensor is ideal for applications including:

  • Bin fill and peak height monitoring
  • Overfill detection
  • Pallet stacking or depalletizing
  • Parcel management
  • Shipping and receiving
  • Tracking material flow volume or height statistics
