Banner Engineering: Q5Z Laser Sensor
April 17, 2023
Introducing the Q5Z Laser Sensor
The new Q5Z laser sensor offers high excess gain for advanced detection and measurement capabilities. It can sense extremely dark and shiny targets that can pose challenges for photoelectric sensors, and it includes dual independent output channels and communication over IO-Link. Q5Z sensors have been preconfigured for standard factory conditions, so that users do not need to do any programming of individual sensors. This helps get production lines up and running faster, leading to improved productivity and throughput.
Ready out of the Box
The sensor comes fully configured with powerful Two Point background suppression teach mode. Simply mount it to the machine and use the convenient single button to teach the sensor.
Simplified User Interface
A single button is all that is needed to teach the sensor. For greater functionality, IO-Link can be used for advanced programming and diagnostics. In addition, Banner’s Remote Sensor Display (RSD) can be used for product changeover and easy device replacement.
Powerful Performance in a Robust Housing
Banner’s Q5Z offers two independent discrete outputs in a durable IP67 housing that delivers exceptionally high excess gain to detect the most challenging targets from shiny metal to black rubber. Flexible mounting options are available with a variety of brackets, a dovetail mount, and the 270° swivel quick disconnect.
