Self-contained photoelectric sensor solution operates wirelessly

August 29, 2012 // By Julien Happich
Banner Engineering introduced the SureCross Q45, claimed to be the world's first self-contained, wireless standard photoelectric sensor solution designed for control and monitoring applications.

The SureCross Q45 improves efficiency in control and monitoring applications by offering a turnkey photoelectric wireless photoelectric solution with proprietary power management for an extended battery life up to five years on two replaceable AA Lithium batteries. The units have a communication range of up to 1 km line-of-sight and come equipped with multiple I/Os to support a wireless network of up to 47 Q45 sensors per gateway. They offer deterministic PLC-level reliability with built-in site survey capabilities. Robust, IP67/NEMA 6P protection against liquids and debris common to industrial environments make this sensing solution rugged for the detection of objects in many situations. Models are available in polarized retroreflective, convergent visible, remote device interface and fiber optic.
