hygienic environment sensors banner engineering corpSuitable for hygienic and washdown environments, Banner QM26 and the QMH26 photoelectric sensors are used in food and beverage manufacturing and packaging zones. The QM26 model comes in a non-toxic, 316L stainless steel housing, and can withstand high-pressure washdowns and temperature cycling from -30°C to 60°C; it is ECOLAB certified for inexhaustible sensor life in chemically cleaned environments. The QMH26 version has minimal grooves and crevices to eliminate areas for bacteria to hide and multiply, and is self-draining for clean-in-place applications. Both models operate in retroreflective, clear object and adjustable field background suppression modes.
