BANNER Engineering, represented in Australia by Micromax , has released the WORLD-BEAM QS30 Series high-power sensors.
They are designed to provide maximum excess gain (burn-through) for accurate and reliable sensing in applications with heavy fog, dust and industrial process contamination.
Uses include car washes, forest or bulk products handling, automobile component manufacture and machining processes, amusement park attractions and mounted outside looking into industrial ovens, garage, bridge and tunnel entrances.
The sensors' rugged housings are sealed to a rating of IP69K, a new standard for industrial applications requiring 1200psi washdown protection. For added durability in harsh conditions the internal components of the Banner QS30EX and QS30RX sensors are completely epoxy-encapsulated.
The lens design sheds water and debris to reduce the occurrence of lens contamination. A unique lens material and design also makes it highly resistant to impact.
An 8-segment LED bar graph displays status during setup and operation. Status indicating LEDs located on the top of the sensor are visible from 360 degrees, providing the information at a glance.
The 10 to 30V dc WORLD-BEAM QS30EX and QS30RX sensors have a maximum output rating of 100mA for each of their outputs. Light Operate and Dark Operate outputs are available depending on the model, offering two outputs per sensor that switch simultaneously: one NPN (current sinking) and one PNP (current sourcing). The sensors are available with a 2m PVC cable, 9 m PVC cable or 5-pin integral Euro-style quick-disconnect cable.
