Reliable laser measurement sensor

June 2021 Sensors & Transducers

As a new addition to Turck Banner’s measurement sensor offering, the Q4X600 analog sensor expands the types of applications the company can solve. The Q4X600 features reliable sensing range from as close as 25 mm to a distance of 610 mm. Increased excess gain allows this high-resolution sensor to detect darker targets than other discrete models at the high end of its range. The higher excess gain expands the type of applications it can solve. Additionally, remote input allows for remote teaching, as well as laser-enabled and advanced measurement modes, to expand the range of applications solved with a single sensor.

Easy-to-use in a rugged housing

Q4X600 offers easy setup with an intuitive display and responsive buttons. The display provides clear user feedback for easy configuration. A bright output indicator provides high visibility of sensor operation. The LED output indicator and real-time distance feedback of analog output (0-10 V, 4-20 mA) offer simple troubleshooting, leading to reduced installation costs. Minimise set-up time with the easy-to-read, four-digit display. Use Remote Sensor Display (RSD) for remote monitoring, configuration and storage of up to six programs.

The Q4X600 expands the types of applications Banner can solve by offering a rugged, stainless steel housing that can solve a variety of challenging, distance-based applications. The compact housing fits into tight spaces with flat face option for food and beverage. The rugged design resists mechanical impact, over-tightening and extreme vibration. Robust FDA-grade stainless steel housing for even the most demanding environments: IP67, IP68 and IP69K. Additionally, industry standard 18 mm threaded barrel housing is an option for quick installation.

Typical applications include:

• Presence/absence.

• Part orientation.

• Black foam on black plastic.

• Shiny package detection.

• Multicolour package detection.

• Clear/transparent object detection.

• Error-proofing part-in-place applications.
