Versatile, Rugged Laser Distance Sensor
1 min  47 secs 

With best in class excess gain, bipolar PNP and NPN outputs, a reliable 25 to 300 mm detection range and superior ambient light immunity, the Q4X can solve even the most challenging distance-based, part-detection applications.

1 min  47 secs 
High-Pressure Washdown
1 min  27 secs 

Banner's Q4X versatile, rugged laser distance sensor has an IP69K rating for use in wet and high-pressure washdown environments. The IP69K rating is important for applications where high-pressure, high-temperature water and cleaning chemicals are used to spray down equipment and machines.
