Completely self-contained wireless photoelectric sensor

Banner Engineering is introducing the SureCross Q45, claimed to be the world's first self-contained, wireless standard photoelectric sensor designed for control and monitoring applications. When traditional products are significantly more costly due to infrastructure requirements - complexities of cables, conduits and installation - operators can quickly integrate a scalable, wireless sensor network to improve efficiency by monitoring and coordinating multiple machines and processes.

Scott Pritchard, Director of Wireless at Banner Engineering, says: "The SureCross Q45 was developed from the ground up, exclusively for the demands of industrial automation. The proprietary, self-contained battery, radio and sensor solution, featuring easy deployment and untethered communications, provides the functionality, reliability and determinism required for factory applications."

The SureCross Q45 improves efficiency in control and monitoring applications through the following performance features:

  • Turnkey photoelectric wireless photoelectric solution
  • Proprietary power management delivers extended battery life up to five years on two replaceable AA Lithium batteries, depending on sensor and application
  • Long range communication of up to 3000ft./1km line-of-sight minimum
  • Multiple I/O with support of a wireless network of up to 47 Q45 sensors per gateway
  • Deterministic PLC-level reliability
  • Built-in site survey capabilities
  • Robust, IP67/NEMA 6P protection against liquids and debris common to industrial environments

Bob Gardner, Senior Product Manager at Banner Engineering, says: "The flexibility of the SureCross Q45 sets it apart from anything else our customers have used. With performance capabilities ranging from the detection of objects in simple presence/absence or alignment applications to call-for-parts and error-proofing in productivity solutions, the SureCross Q45 can accurately connect and solve applications that were difficult, costly or nearly impossible with conventional technologies."

The SureCross Q45 is suitable for many applications, including cable replacement, moving applications, remote applications and productivity systems. To meet diverse application requirements, models are available in Polarized Retroreflective, Convergent Visible, Remote Device Interface and Fiber Optic.
