Feb. 20, 2015 – Banner Engineering says its Q4X laser distance sensor detects distance changes as small as 1 mm and covers a 25-300 mm range across multiple target colours, materials and surfaces. According to the company, it easily detects objects regardless of target surface reflectivity, including black foam on black plastic, black rubber in front of metal, multicolour packaging and targets of all colours. Additionally, it promises to provide superior resistance to ambient light interference. Boasting a simplified user experience, the Q4X provides a clear distance readout from the highly visible, angled four-digit display that is easily viewed from multiple vantage points. Its IP69K rated housing makes it suitable for use in wet and high-pressure washdown environments in automotive, robotic, packaging and other automated assembly processes.
