Banner Engineering SensorBanner Engineering’s SureCross Q45 is the world’s first 100-percent self-contained, wireless standard photoelectric sensor solution designed for control and monitoring applications, the company says. The SureCross Q45 was developed 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 is designed to improve 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 3,000 ft./1 km 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

The photoelectric sensor is a good fit for many applications, including cable replacement, moving applications, remote applications, and productivity solutions. Models are available in Polarized Retroreflective, Convergent Visible, Remote Device Interface. and Fiber Optic.
