Q4X Series All-Purpose Sensors

Dec. 1, 2015

Q4X laser distance sensor is now offered in 100-mm models optimized for higher performance over a shorter measuring range. They reportedly offer twice the measurement precision and a 25% smaller laser spot than the longer range 300-mm models, making them ideal for detecting small features.


These sensors are available with bipolar discrete (NPN and PNP) and analog (0–10 v or 4-20 ma) output options. Discrete models can detect objects as thin as 0.5 mm, while analog models precisely inspect part dimensions and positioning with resolution down to 0.15 mm. The Q4X is ideal for difficult distance-based sensing applications since it easily detects objects regardless of target surface reflectivity.

  • Discrete, analog (0 to 10V or 4 to 20 mA), clear object, and IO-Link models available
  • Reliable sensing range from as close as 25 mm and as far as 610 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
  • Easy setup with responsive buttons
  • Rugged design resists mechanical impact, over tightening and extreme vibration
  • Clear distance readout from angled four-digit display
