WORLD-BEAM Q20 Background Suppression

Overview

Compact, high-performance sensor in standard rectangular housing with visible red fixed-field background suppression and increased detection range opposed mode sensing.

  • Compact, rugged, sealed, over-molded plastic housing
  • Fixed Field Background Suppression models have small emitter beam optics to avoid false detection beyond cut-off better than ever before.
  • The Fixed Field Background Suppression also incorporate immunity to fluorescent light sources in the background.
  • IP67/NEMA 6 & NEMA PW12 1200 PSI washdown rated
  • Standard 3 mm threaded mounting holes on 25.4 mm (1 in.) spacing
  • Metallic M8 and M12 connectors on "QD" models with a threaded connection to the cord-set
  • Complete offering of mounting brackets and apertures available
