Banner Engineering's Q4X laser distance sensor is able to detect distance changes as small as 1 mm and covers a 25 to 300 mm range across multiple target colors, materials and surfaces. The Q4X is optimal for difficult distance-based sensing applications regardless of target surface reflectivity, including black foam on black plastic, black rubber in front of metal, multicolor packaging and targets of all colors. Additionally, the sensor is designed to provide resistance to ambient light interference. The Q4X provides a clear distance readout from the highly visible, angled four-digit display that is easily viewed from multiple vantage points. The Q4X also offers intuitive user setup using three tactile buttons conveniently located below the display. For use in wet and high-pressure washdown environments, the Q4X is constructed with housing rated to IP69K.
