The Banner Engineering SureCross Q45 is the world's first completely self-contained wireless photoelectric sensor solution, designed to provide untethered communications for control and monitoring applications. This is a Control Engineering 2013 Engineers' Choice finalist.The Banner Engineering SureCross Q45 is the world’s first completely self-contained wireless standard photoelectric sensor solution designed for control and monitoring applications. As an established leader in photoelectric sensors and wireless technology, Banner Engineering is the first and only company to develop a 100% self-contained wireless sensing solution with a proprietary, self-contained battery, radio and sensor all in one package. Featuring easy deployment and untethered communications, the SureCross Q45 provides the functionality, reliability, and determinism required for factory applications. 

The SureCross Q45 improves efficiency by monitoring and coordinating multiple machines and processes through its key performance features: - Proprietary power management delivers extended battery life up to five years on two replaceable AA Lithium batteries, depending on sensor and application - Long range communication of up to 3,000 ft/1 km line-of-sight minimum - Multiple I/O with support of a wireless network of up to 47 Q45 sensors per gateway - Deterministic PLC-level reliability - Built-in site survey capabilities - Robust, IP67/NEMA 6P protection against liquids and debris common to industrial environments.

With performance capabilities ranging from the detection of objects in simple presence/absence or alignment applications to call-for-parts and error-proofing in productivity solutions, the SureCross Q45 can accurately connect and solve applications that were difficult, costly or nearly impossible with conventional technologies. It is ideal for many applications, including cable replacement, moving applications, remote applications and productivity solutions. To meet diverse application requirements, models are available in Polarized Retroreflective, Convergent Visible, Remote Device Interface and Fiber Optic.
