WORLD-BEAM QS30 Clear Object Sensor

Overview

PW12-rated sensor in a worldwide standard WORLD-BEAM QS30 housing senses clear objects.

  • Reliably detects clear, translucent, and opaque objects faster than ultrasonic sensors
  • Compensates for dust or contamination on the sensor or reflector by using an automatic compensation algorithm
  • 3 selectable thresholds based on type of target being detected
  • Easy configuration of sensor via push buttons or remote wire
  • Includes a BRT-2X2LVC reflector and a BRT-40X19A reflector in the box
  • Rugged IP67 NEMA 6 housing for harsh environments; 1200 psi washdown rated per NEMA PW12
  • Compact housing, mounting versatility — 30 mm threaded barrel or side-mount
