Q3X Versatile, Rugged Laser Contrast Sensor
1 min  54 secs 

With a fast 250 microsecond response speed, a reliable 300 mm detection range, bipolar PNP and NPN outputs and superior ambient light immunity, the Q3X can solve even the most challenging contrast-based, part-detection applications.

Q3X LD50 Laser Contrast Sensor with Fixed Background Suppression
1 min  27 secs 

Introducing the new Q3X laser contrast sensor with fixed background suppression by Banner Engineering. The combination of contrast detection within a specified sensing range and fixed background suppression beyond, makes the new Q3X one of a kind.

Solutions

Ideal for high-speed part detection as fast as 250 µs, capturing up to 2,000 events per second. Ideal for presence/ absence detection or part orientation detection. High performance contrast detection can detect small changes in contrast up to 300 mm.  

Hard Disk Detection

Detect whether shiny disks are properly seated

Black O-Ring Detection
Black O-Ring Detection

The Q3X is Banner’s rugged, versatile laser contrast sensor, ideal for applications that require fast detection. As parts go down the conveyor, the Q3X will be able to detect if the o-ring is present based on the taught contrast differences. If the o-ring is not present, the Q3X will see a bright signal level and send an output to the PLC. This alerts operators to fix the error or move the part off of the production line.

Detection of Cap Orientation
Detection of Cap Orientation

The Banner Q3X laser diffuse sensor is ideal for applications that require orientation detection with small contrast differences.

High-Speed Registration Mark Detection
High-Speed Registration Mark Detection

Banner’s Q3X versatile, rugged laser contrast sensor is ideal for detecting registration marks. With a range up to 300 mm, the Q3X has a tight laser spot able to detect a small white registration mark reliably. When the Q3X detects the white registration mark, the intensity readout increases and a discrete output is triggered, indicating the white registration mark is present and it is the correct package going down the line.

Bottle Label Verification
Bottle Label Verification

Banner’s Q3X versatile, rugged laser contrast sensor including background suppression is ideal for contrast applications where there is also a fixed background that needs to be ignored. In this application, the Q3X background suppression sensor detects the contrast difference between a bottle with and without a label for reliable label detection. With a range up to 50 mm, the Q3X has a tight laser spot able to detect a small change in contrast reliably.
