WORLD-BEAM® SENSORS NOW AVAILABLE IN WORLDWIDE STANDARD
MN—October 29, 2007—Banner Engineering Corp. announces compact
Q20 sensors, the newest addition to Banner’s WORLD-BEAM® family
of cost-effective, rugged and powerful photoelectric sensors. The
Q20 delivers a host of sensing modes in a durable, IP67-sealed housing
with industry-standard 25.4 mm mounting. With a water-tight, small
rectangular housing and exceptional optical range, the Q20 provides
high-performance, reliable sensing in a space-saving package. The
Q20 also features an advanced ASIC design for excellent crosstalk avoidance
and exceptional EMI/RFI noise immunity to ensure reliable performance in

The Q20 is available in a wide array of sensing models and modes,
including opposed (10 and 15 m), polarized (4 m) and non-polarized
(6 m) retroreflective, and diffuse (250, 800 and 1500 mm) models.
Sensors feature a visible red sensing beam foreasy alignment or an
infrared sensing beam, depending on model. All models feature bright
LED indicators for 360° visibility of operating status. The sensor’s strong,
over-molded plastic housing provides a washdown rating of up to 1200 psi.
List price for a Q20 emitter/receiver pair is $95; all other Q20
models are priced at $70.
“The Q20 takes our WORLD-BEAM family of photoelectric sensors to a new level
by offering a high-performance, compact design and versatile mounting options—including
molded-in threaded mounting holes on standard 25.4 mm spacing for quick installation,” said
Dennis Smith, Banner Engineering product manager. “The Q20’s compact, sealed
housing with over-molded construction ensures the sensor’s reliable, robust operation
in washdown or other challenging plant environments.”
Applications. The Q20 provides a cost-effective, space-saving
sensingsolution for industrial and commercial operations, especially
in material handling, automated manufacturing cell, error-proofing
and packaging applications. In addition, the sensor’s IP67-sealed
housing with 1200 psi rating makes it ideal for food processing or
other applications in washdown environments.
In addition, several features of the Q20 make it particularly easy
to set up and use:
