Banner Engineering has added to its line of compact photoelectric sensors with the launch of the new WORLD-BEAM Q20FF fixed-field background suppression sensor.
The Q20FF offers visible red, fixed-field background suppression and a sensing range up to six inches (150mm). The sensor is suitable for a number of applications including material handling, robot assembly, food and beverage and pharmaceutical goods.
The sensor is IP67/NEMA 6 and NEMA PW12 1200 PSI wash down rated and has metallic M8 and M12 connectors on ‘QD’ models with a threaded connection to the cord set. The Q20FF is also DC operated from 10-30V DC with complementary solid-state outputs (one normally open, one normally closed) - PNP (sourcing) or NPN (sinking) by model.
