Coaxial Clear Object Detection Sensor
Fast. Reliable. Easy-to-Use.
The polarized coaxial optical design ensures reliable detection of transparent, translucent, and opaque targets at any distance between the sensor and the reflector. The QS18 Expert Clear Object Detection Sensor works well in low contrast applications, such as the detection of PET bottles, glass containers, and shrink wrap. The sensor can also be used to detect optical surfaces such as: LCD panels with built in polarizing films, solar panels, and semiconductor wafers.
QS18: Reliable Detection of Clear Objects at Any Distance
The QS18 Expert Coaxial Clear Object Detection sensor reliably detects clear and mirror-like surfaces. Featuring:
- Response speed of 400 µs ON/OFF
- Coaxial optics and small spot size for applications where space is limited
- Banner's new ClearTracking algorithm, which compensates for dust build-up and ambient temperature changes
Coaxial Optics Benefits
Three User-Selectable Thresholds
Optimize the sensor's performance to detect small changes in the amount of light received
The QS18 reliably detects clear, translucent, or opaque objects. Coaxial optics enable reliable detection of targets to the face of the sensor with no dead zone.
