Banner Engineering: Enhanced laser distance sensor

Featuring new firmware, the Q4X dual teach mode sensor from Banner Engineering combines window thresholds on both target distance and target reflected intensity, allowing the Q4X to reliably solve difficult applications with ease.

The Q4X can now detect clear objects without requiring a retro-reflector. Dual mode can be used to error-proof applications by ensuring the correct color part is located at the correct position.

The unit reliably detects distance changes as small as 1 mm and covers a 25 to 300 mm range. The sensor was already ideal for difficult distance-based sensing applications, as it easily detects objects regardless of target surface reflectivity, including black foam on black plastic, black rubber in front of metal, multicolor packaging and targets of all colors. Now with the dual teach mode, the sensor can detect small changes in reflected intensity for targets inside the distance threshold. This powerful combination allows the Q4X to solve many new applications.
