Q4X Versatile, Rugged Laser Distance Sensor

Overview

The versatile, rugged laser distance sensor has superior performance, detecting distance changes as small as 1 mm with a reliable sensing range of 25 to 300 mm.

  • Detects distance changes as small as 1 mm
  • Reliable sensing range of 25 to 300 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
  • Rugged design resists mechanical impact, over tightening and extreme vibration
  • Clear distance readout from angled four-digit display
  • Easy setup with responsive buttons
  • Analog models provide continuous measurement on difficult targets from dark to reflective with an output of 0 to 10 V
