Q4X Series

Rugged Laser Distance Sensor

IO Link with Registered Trademark
ip69k

Versatile, rugged laser distance sensors offering superior performance and capable of detecting sub-millimeter changes in distance.

  • Discrete, analog (0 to 10 V or 4 to 20 mA), clear object, and IO-Link models available
  • Reliable sensing range from as close as 25 mm and as far as 610 mm
  • Detects across a variety of target colors, materials and surfaces based on distance
  • Dual teach mode (intensity + distance) is ideal for error-proofing applications and enables clear object detection with no retro-reflector required
  • Robust housing rated to IP69K with FDA-grade stainless steel
  • Easy setup with responsive buttons
  • Rugged design resists mechanical impact, over tightening and extreme vibration
  • Clear distance readout from angled four-digit display
