The Q42 is an addition to the uprox+ family of factor one sensors that require no correction factor to detect any metal type.The sensor features an improved design with a durable stainless steel connector and PA12 thermoplastic housing that delivers resistance to chemicals and caustic cleaning agents, as well as shock from impact. Additionally, the upgraded housing materials are food-safe and meet FDA Regulation 21CFR 177, 1500(9) for the U.S. and FDA/EGVO 1935/2004 for the E.U. The Q42 features integrated predamping that gives the designer flexibility to partially recess the sensor into their design.
