Meet the Banner Engineering Q5X Series!

The Banner Engineering Q5X Series is composed of high-power mid-range sensor that detects even the most challenging targets while saving time and costs. The device comes in a versatile IP67 rated housing that can be mounted outside of hazardous areas and it can detect the most acute angles from 9.5 cm to 2 meters away.

The Q5X can verify multiple conditions and with one single device you can:
  • Detect clear and reflective objects
  • Detect black targets against a black background
  • Detect black targets against a shiny metal background
  • Detect multicolor packaging and targets of all colors

The Q5X Series can be programmed via on-board user interface, remote teach, IO-Link, or optional sensor display. Besides the easy programming, the solution also offers real-time distance feedback that enables easy troubleshooting and is error proof.

  • Part in place inspections
  • Part motion complete
  • Detection of black plastic, leather, and rubber parts
  • End of line pallet detection
  • Shrink wrap detection
  • Carton full/empty
  • Box, tote, and pallet detection
  • Detection of construction materials (timber, plywood, sheetrock, steel, asphalt, etc.)
