HIGH-SPEED LASER CONTRAST SENSOR CAPTURES UP TO 2,000 EVENTS PER SECOND New Q3X from Banner Engineering meets many challenging low contrast part detection applications
A high-speed laser contrast sensor that reliably detects parts with low reflectivity differences has been introduced by Banner Engineering (www.BannerEngineering.com). With response speed up to 250 µs, the new Q3X sensor captures up to 2,000 events per second. Its rugged nickel-plated zinc housing is rated to IP67, IP68 and IP69K for use in harsh environments.

The sensor’s easily viewable three-digit display delivers real-time feedback on a bright output indicator. Intuitive setup routines for presence-absence and orientation applications are accomplished with two tactile buttons below the display. It is designed to meet challenging applications including detection of registration marks, leading edge, small or thin features and small contrast changes.
A visible laser beam allows easy alignment and precise detection over sensing ranges up to 300mm. On select models, a fixed background suppression distance allows the sensor to ignore problematic backgrounds. The unit has robust ambient light resistance.
Banner Engineering is a leading manufacturer of vision, photoelectric and ultrasonic sensors, fiber optic assemblies, machine guarding systems, measurement and inspection systems and wireless network products. The company provides local application support worldwide.
