January 26, 2017 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
Jan. 26, 2017 – Banner Engineering has added flush mount housings to its series of Q4X laser distance measurement sensors.
The new flush mount configuration, according to Banner, offers a “more compact housing to expand applications and increase mounting flexibility in constrained spaces.” The Q4X promises superior performance, ambient light resistance and durability, with reliable detection of sub-millimeter changes in distances ranging from 35 to 310 mm. Utilizing a CMOS imager, the unit boasts a dependable performance with “highly reflective and multi-colour surfaces,” or light-absorbing materials and low contrasts, such as black foams or rubber combined with black plastics or metals. The laser distance sensors are available with discrete, analogue (0 to 10 V or 4 to 20 mA), and IO-Link output options. It is rated to IP69K with FDA-grade stainless steel.
