Q26 Series Luminescence Sensor


Compact Q26 series luminescence sensors use UV light to activate luminescent dyes, inks and surfaces, enabling reliable detection of labels, adhesives and tamper resistant seals in a range of applications.

  • Reliably detects luminescent plastics, coatings, lubricants, and other targets on even and uneven surfaces
  • Simple configuration with the push button on the sensor's housing or via a remote input line
  • Rotary switch selects Light Operate or Dark Operate
  • Fast, 250 microsecond response time
  • Two indicator LEDs show operating and output status
  • NPN or PNP discrete output, depending on model
  • More than 20 mm of operating range
  • IP67-rated housing for use in rugged industrial environments
  • Compact housing size: 14 × 25 × 42 mm
