IMPROVED LASER DISTANCE SENSORS

BANNER Q4X series support additional QA apps

New teach mode adds clear object detection to capabilities

New teach mode adds clear object detection to capabilities

Online  —  Banner Engineering  has expanded the capabilities of its Q4X series of laser distance sensors, allowing them to be used in several new applications.

The series now includes an analog model to measure distance and a discrete model with expanded capability to detect clear objects and contrast changes.

With sub-millimeter distance change capability, the new Q4X Analog model measures height and fill levels, complementing the presence or absence capability of the discrete model.

This enables the sensor to support multiple applications including easy analog interfacing to the PLC with reduced programming. Continue reading
