The Q40 features a small housing, with weld field immunity and the ability to sense aluminium and steel at the same distance.  Each Q40 sensor head can be mounted in 5 positions and has highly-visible corner LED’s. The connector outlet is also adjustable within a 270° range.  Designed for hostile welding applications due to their PTFE coated sensing face and immunity to magnetic fields, but the sensor is also suitable for other applications where it needs to perform no matter what the type of metal target material.
