Banner Engineering QS18 Expert Object Detection Sensors w/ IO-Link

Banner Engineering’s QS18 Expert Series clear object detection sensors are now available in models featuring IO-Link communication. IO-Link establishes a point-to-point communication link between a master device and a sensor. This enables remote access to sensor configuration parameters, process data and diagnostic information. Benefits include simplified wiring, installation, preventative maintenance, and sensor backup.


  • Reliably detects clear, transparent, or opaque objects — including PET, glass containers, and transparent films
  • Coaxial optics enable reliable detection of targets to the face of the sensor with no dead zone
  • ClearTracking automatic compensation algorithm provides long and reliable operation by compensating for dust build up and ambient temperature changes
  • Fast response speed with low jitter for high speed bottling and packaging applications
  • Bright, visible red light spot makes alignment easy
  • 3 user-selectable thresholds optimize performance to the type of object being detected
  • Easy configuration of sensor by remote teach input or tactile push button
  • Convenient mounting options available for 18 mm barrel or side mount
  • Bright indicator LEDs show operating status from 360°
  • IP67 rated ABS housing
  • IO-Link with programmable PNP/NPN output and input configurations using IO-Link
