Banner Engineering Corp. has launched a new level of photoelectric sensors that offer high-performance, compact design and versatile mounting options. The World-beam Q20 sensors deliver a wide array of sensing modes and models, including opposed (10m and 15m), polarized (4m) and non-polarized (6m), retroreflective and diffuse (250-, 800- and 1500mm) models. The sensors feature either a visible red sensing beam for easy alignment, or an infrared sensing beam. All models feature bright LED indicators for 360 visibility of operating status.

The sensors are packaged in durable, IP67-sealed over-molded plastic housing with a washdown rating of up to 1,200psi, and industry-standard 25.4mm mounting.

The Q20 also features an advanced ASIC design for excellent crosstalk avoidance and exceptional EMI/RFI noise immunity to ensure reliable performance in demanding applications.

"The Q20 takes our World-beam family of photoelectric sensors to a new level by offering high-performance, compact design and versatile mounting options for quick installation," said Dennis Smith, Banner Engineering product manager. "The Q20's compact, sealed housing with over-molded construction ensures the sensor's reliable, robust operation in washdown or other challenging plant environments."

The Q20 provides a cost-effective, space-saving sensing solution for industrial and commercial operations, especially in material handling, automated manufacturing cell, error-proofing and packaging applications. It is also suitable for food processing and other applications in washdown environments.
