The Q26 has a compact cubic shape intended to allow users to install it quickly in tight locations. The unit includes an LO–DO switch that enables operators to control the output type. A single-turn potentiometer lets users adjust detection sensitivity. The Q26 unit also communicates its operation and connection status, thus allowing the user to ensure reliable sensor performance.
The photoelectric sensor operates with a response speed of 250 µs. The device is also protected against damage from potential miswiring during installation and transient voltage spikes during operation.
The compact device can detect and remove ferrous, nonferrous, and stainless-steel contaminants through a reject valve that users can adjust to discharge contaminated product on the left or the right. Operators do not need tools to disassemble and clean the chute. The metal-detector system is designed for installation in tight spaces within tablet and encapsulation rooms and includes circuit boards that are easily accessible and removable. Users control the device through a touch-screen interface. Its adjustable support stand incorporates casters and is manufactured from 304 stainless steel.
