WORLD-BEAM QS30 Background Suppression

Overview

High performance mid-range adjustable-field background suppression sensor complementing the QS18AF short-range and Q60LAF long-range series sensor.

  • For reliably detecting objects in a defined sensing field while ignoring objects beyond cutoff point
  • 30 mm threaded barrel or right-angle mounting options
  • Range of supply voltages:
    • Adjustable-field models with 10 to 30V dc and bipolar NPN/PNP outputs
    • Fixed-field models with either 10 to 30V dc and bipolar NPN/PNP outputs or 12 to 250V ac/24 to 250V dc and SPDT electromechanical relay output
  • Push-button SET adjustable-field models with cutoff point from 50 to 300 mm
  • Preprogrammed fixed-field models with 200, 400 or 600 mm cutoff
  • Powerful highly collimated visible red sensing beam
  • Bright LED operating status indicators visible from 360°
