Powerful Sensors for Tiny Spaces: Banner’s New Miniature Q2X Sensors

MC Banners New Miniature Q2X Sensor 1 400

May 18, 2022

 

Banner’s new Q2X sensors feature miniaturized enclosures, which allow them to be fit into a wide variety of confined industrial spaces and equipment. Despite their compact size, these sensors deliver reliable, competitive performance, with robust excess gain and sensing precision to detect challenging targets. The next-generation Q2X series complements the available Q12 series of miniature sensors by providing a more expansive range of performance modes. The series includes a new standard adjustable-field background-suppression model with either a visible red photoelectric LED or a Class 1 laser emitter, a cost-effective polarized retro-reflective model, and an easy-to-align opposed-mode sensor pair.

The Q2X is the next generation of miniature photoelectric sensors. With its compact size and rugged design, the Q2X is ideal for installation in very precise machinery and tight industrial spaces.

  • •Miniature sensor for installation in the smallest of spaces
  • •Precise and reliable position detection of small components
  • •Machine design flexibility with proven mounting and connection options
  • •Small high-visibility red LED or Class 1 laser emitter
  • •Enhanced immunity to energy-efficient lights
  • •Crosstalk immunity algorithm allows two sensors to be used in close proximity

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.
