Q4X Laser Measurement SensorMinneapolis, MN - August 18, 2015 - Banner Engineering announces its industry-recognized Q4X laser distance sensor is now available with analog output. Featuring 4-20mA and 0-10 V output options, the Q4X analog models expand the variety of applications Banner’s Q4X laser distance sensor can solve, including fill level indication, part positioning, roll diameter, loop control and thickness/height verification.

Providing continuous measurement and versatile sensing performance, Q4X analog sensors provide resolution as small as 0.15 mm and cover up to a 300 mm range. The sensors deliver reliable measurement regardless of color or reflectivity of target object or background.

“While the original Q4X has become a problem solver for many of our customers’ challenging sensor applications, we discovered a need for an analog model to satisfy additional applications such as fill level verification. Advanced measurement modes, including the averaging trigger, provide more consistent measurements across inconsistent surfaces, such as pills inside a bottle,” said Brad Ragozzino, Technical Marketing Engineer, Banner Engineering. “With a combination of analog output and durable stainless steel housing with IP69K rating, the Q4X analog provides a truly unique and reliable sensing solution.”

The Banner Q4X analog offers a simplified user experience with analog (V or mA) or distance (mm) readout from the highly visible, angled four-digit display that is easily viewed from multiple vantage points. The Q4X also offers intuitive user setup utilizing three tactile buttons conveniently located below the display.

For use in wet and high-pressure washdown environments, the Banner Q4X is constructed with robust housing rated to IP69K. Durable FDA-grade stainless steel resists mechanical impact, over tightening and extreme vibration.
