Compact Sensors Available in Rectangular Housing

Saturday, December 1, 2007

Banner Engineering Corp., Minneapolis, MN, introduces its Q20 sensors, the newest addition to its World Beam family of cost-effective, rugged and powerful photoelectric sensors. It delivers a host of sensing modes in a durable, IP67-sealed housing with industry-standard 25.4-mm mounting. With a watertight, small rectangular housing and good optical range, the Q20 reportedly provides high-performance, reliable sensing in a space-saving package. It also features an advanced ASIC design for crosstalk avoidance and exceptional EMI/RFI noise immunity to ensure reliable performance in demanding applications.

The Q20 comes in several models and modes, including opposed (10 and 15 m), polarized (4 m) and nonpolarized (6 m) retroreflective, and diffuse (250, 800 and 1500 mm) models. Sensors feature a visible red sensing beam for single alignment or an infrared sensing beam, depending on model. All models feature bright LED indicators for 360-deg. visibility of operating status. The sensor’s strong, over-molded plastic housing provides a washdown rating to 1200 psi.
