Banner Engineering has added flush mount housings to its rugged series of Q4X laser distance measurement sensors. The new flush mount configuration offers a more compact housing to expand applications and increase mounting flexibility in constrained spaces.
“The new flush mount configuration of the Banner Q4X sensor provides more integration possibilities and greater installation flexibility, especially in applications with tight space requirements,” said Brad Ragozzino, a technical marketing engineer at Banner Engineering. “The combination of superior detection and measurement reliability, easy setup, advanced features including delay timers and remote input, and the ability to handle the most challenging surfaces, makes the Q4X a highly versatile, single-sensor solution to solve a wide range of detection and measurement applications.”
The Banner Q4X offers superior performance, ambient light resistance and durability, with reliable detection of sub-millimeter changes in distances ranging from 35 to 310 mm. Using a CMOS imager for reliable measurements, the Q4X offers dependable performance with highly reflective and multi-color surfaces, or light-absorbing materials and low contrasts, such as black foams or rubber combined with black plastics or metals.
With dual teach mode, the Q4X uses a combination of intensity and distance, making it ideal for error-proofing applications and reliable detection of challenging targets, such as clear packaging and transparent object detection without a retroreflector. Banner Q4X laser distance sensors are available with discrete, analog (0 to 10 V or 4 to 20 mA), and IO-Link output options.
The robust Q4X housing is rated to IP69K with FDA-grade stainless steel, and its rugged design resists mechanical impact, over tightening and extreme vibration. A highly visible, four-digit, angled display with sub-millimeter resolution is easily viewed from multiple vantage points.
