April 29, 2021

The Q4X600 high resolution models are now available with analog output and even higher excess gain to solve more applications. This versatile, rugged laser measurement sensor is available in barrel or flush mount housing. It builds upon the success of the Q4X with even higher performance and detection capabilities.

RELIABLE SENSING WITH BEST-IN-CLASS EXCESS GAIN

As a new addition to Banner’s measurement sensor offering, the Q4X600 analog expands the types of applications Banner can solve. The Q4X600 features reliable sensing range from as close as 25 mm and as far as 610 mm. Increased excess gain allows this high resolution sensor to detect even darker targets than discrete models at the high end of its range. The higher excess gain expands the type of applications it can solve. Additionally, remote input allows for remote teaching, as well as laser enabled and advanced measurement modes, to expand the range of applications solved with a single sensor.

EASY-TO-READ FEEDBACK FOR MINIMAL SETUP

Q4X600 offers easy setup with an intuitive display and responsive buttons. The display provides clear user feedback for easy configuration. A bright output indicator provides high visibility of sensor operation. The LED output indicator and real-time distance feedback of analog output (0-10 V, 4-20 mA) offer simple troubleshooting, leading to reduced installation costs. Minimize set-up time with the easy-to-read, four-digit display. Use Remote Sensor Display (RSD) for remote monitoring, configuration, and storage of up to 6 programs.

RUGGED, STAINLESS STEEL HOUSING

The Q4X600 Analog expands the types of applications Banner can solve by offering a rugged, stainless steel housing that can solve a variety of challenging, distance-based applications. The compact housing fits into tight spaces with flat face option for food and beverage. The rugged design resists mechanical impact, over-tightening, and extreme vibration. Robust FDA-grade stainless steel housing for even the most demanding environments: IP67, IP68, and IP69K. Additionally, industry standard 18 mm threaded barrel housing is an option for quick installation.

Access Management for Your Plant and Machinery

With PILZ’s “Identification and Access Management” portfolio, they offer you a comprehensive range of products, solutions and software for the implementation of safety as well as security tasks. Below you’ll discover more about potential applications, from simple authentication to complex access permissions, and access management through to safe operating mode selection, maintenance safeguarding and safeguarding of data and networks. Experience safety and security in one system!

This solution ensures that a machine cannot resume operation while people are still in the danger zone. The maintenance safeguarding system “key-in-pocket” is designed for machines with danger zones, which are protected by a safety fence and which staff need to access – robot cells for example. In comparison with conventional lockout-tagout (LOTO) systems, maintenance safeguarding with the key-in-pocket solution is implemented via RFID keys with corresponding permissions and a safe list in the PILZ controllers. As a result, it provides a purely electronic restart protection and makes both mechanical interlocking devices and warning tags redundant.
