Key Benefits

Detect extremely challenging targets

The Q5X sensor solves the most difficult distance-based applications, even at acute angles.  The high-power laser sensor features an exceptionally high excess gain, which enables the sensor to reliably detect the darkest objects (<6% reflective black targets) at all distances from 9.5 cm to 2 m. 

In addition, the Q5X detects black targets against a black background, black targets against a shiny metal background, clear and reflective objects, multicolor packaging, and targets of all colors.  

Combine power and versatility to solve more challenges

With industry-standard rectangular housing and 270-degree rotatable M12 QD, the Q5X sensor meets a wide variety of mounting constraints.  In addition, the sensor features stable detection all the way to 2 meters even at an angle, which enables even greater mounting flexibility. The sensor is rated IP67 for reliable performance in wet environments.


The Q5X background suppression sensor detects when the staging area is clear of bottles, and the system is ready for the next layer of containers.  Learn more about this application.

Q5X Background Suppression Laser Sensor

The Q5X sensor solves the most challenging distance-based applications, from 9.5 cm to 2 meters away, even at acute angles. The Q5X has a durable, cost-effective IP67 rated housing and optional metal protective brackets, making it perfect for difficult industrial and wet environments.

Save Time and Costs

The Q5X features a durable, cost-effective plastic housing, and an extensive offering of metal protective brackets for the most difficult industrial environments.  With an intuitive user interface, the Q5X sensor is simple to deploy quickly, saving time and costs.  In addition, dual teach mode enables the sensor to verify multiple conditions—such as part presence and orientation—with a single device. This reduces sensor inventory requirements, as well as installation and maintenance costs.  

Remotely configure and monitor devices

The Q5X is highly configurable and can be programmed via on-board user interface, remote teach, IO-Link, or optional Remote Sensor Display (RSD). The RSD remote display enables remote setup and monitoring, and it stores up to 6 configurations to facilitate product changeover and simplify device replacement. The RSD can remain in-line to easily monitor sensors in difficult-to-reach locations, or it can be removed after configuration.


The Q5X laser sensor solves a wide variety of challenging applications in food and beverage, packaging, material handling, and automotive industries. Ideal applications include:
  • Part in place inspections
  • Part motion complete
  • Detection of black plastic, leather, and rubber parts 
  • End of line pallet detection
  • Shrink wrap detection
  • Carton full /empty
  • Box, tote, and pallet detection
  • Detection of construction materials (timber, plywood, sheetrock, steel, asphalt, etc.)·  

The Q5X reliably detects dark components against a dark background in automotive applications. Learn more about this application.
