MQ/MV series AC-powered photoeyes detect presence several ways: diffuse (light reflects from the target object back to the sensor), diffuse with background suppression (90-degree optics), retroreflective (object interrupts light rebounding off fixed reflector), or through-beam (object obstructs light traveling from emitter to receiver). Available models offer detection ranges up to 16m.
MQ Series - Photoelectric Sensors - 18mm, AC-powered
The MQ series photo sensors are AC diffuse photoelectrics with a unique 90-degree optic package
that allows it to be mounted in locations where space is limited.
The MQ series photoelectric sensors fit in a standard 18mm mounting bracket or mounting hole, and are available
in a choice of 20-253 VAC outputs in normally-open or normally-closed configurations with an M12 disconnect.
All MQ photoelectric switch models include background suppression technology with maximum available sensing distances of
50 mm or 100 mm.
For AC applications. Features include:
90 degree Optic package
Models with 50mm or 100mm maximum reading distance
