PHOTOELECTRIC SENSOR AIMS FOR CHALLENGING TARGETS

Using photoelectric sensors to detect the presence or absence of objects on a production line is nothing new, but some objects are harder to detect than others.

The Banner Q5X background suppression laser sensor is a powerful, problem-solving sensor with high excess gain that provides reliable detection of the most challenging targets.

This includes detecting black targets against black backgrounds, transparent and reflective objects, and targets of all colours at ranges between 95cm and 2m.

The cost-effective Q5X sensor comes in the industry-standard rectangular housing, which is sealed to IP67 for reliable performance in wet environments.

A high-brightness output indicator with real-time distance feedback enable simple setup and troubleshooting. And a dual teach mode measures both distance and light intensity to solve the most challenging applications.
