The Q3X LD50 reliably detects targets within the desired sensing range while ignoring objects in the background.Out of the box, the Q3X LD50 operates like a fixed-field laser sensor and detects targets within its 50 mm sensing range. However, the sensor can be programmed for low-contrast sensing within this range, while ignoring objects at least 60 mm away. This allows the sensor to accurately detect its target without background objects affecting its performance.

The Q3X’s robust nickel-plated zinc die cast housing ensures reliable performance even in environments with exposure to cutting fluids and oils. Sensors are also rated to IP67, IP68 and IP69K for enhanced protection to water submergence and high-pressure washdown.
