Turck Q42 IP69K long-range factor one inductive proximity sensor

Friday, 24 August, 2012 | Supplied by: Turck Australia Pty Ltd



The Turck Q42 is a long-range factor one inductive proximity sensor using FDA-rated materials for washdown applications that is available in a top-facing model and a front-facing model. The Q42 is designed to deliver optimal performance in applications that require frequent cleaning with chemicals found in food and beverage applications or where the sensor is exposed to wet environments, such as carwashes or outdoor applications.

The Q42 features an improved design with a durable stainless steel connector and PA12 thermoplastic housing that delivers resistance to chemicals and caustic cleaning agents, as well as shock from impact. Additionally, the upgraded housing materials are food safe and meet FDA Regulation 21CFR 177, 1500(9) for the US and FDA/EGVO 1935/2004 for the EU. The Q42 features integrated predamping that gives the designer flexibility to partially recess the sensor into their design.

The existing uprox+ washdown range of sensors from Turck comprises 12, 18 and 30 mm diameter barrels with sensing ranges between 4 and 30 mm. The Q42 offers a sensing range of 50 mm to all types of metals. This not only eliminates the need to change the position of the sensors for different metal applications, but also reduces the number of sensor types needed for plant operations. In addition to an extended sensing distance, the Q42 delivers reliable operation in temperatures ranging from -40 to 100°C.
