The Q3X LD50 is designed to detect targets within the desired sensing range while ignoring objects in the background. The Q3X LD50 operates like a fixed-field laser sensor and detects targets within its 50 mm sensing range. However, the sensor can be programmed for low-contrast sensing within this range, while ignoring objects at least 60 mm away. This allows the sensor to detect its target without background objects affecting its performance. Featuring high-speed part detection up to 250 μs, the Q3X LD50 laser contrast sensor can capture up to 2,000 events per second. It is also designed with a unique angled, three-digit display of signal intensity, which provides high visibility of operating conditions from multiple angles. The Q3X's robust nickel-plated zinc die cast housing ensures reliable performance even in environments with exposure to cutting fluids and oils. Sensors are also rated to IP67, IP68 and IP69K for enhanced protection to water submergence and high-pressure washdown.
