Turck has added to its uprox+ family of factor one sensors with the launch of the Q42 which uses FDA rated materials for wash down applications.

The Q42 is available in a top facing and front facing model and is well suited for applications that require frequent cleaning with chemicals found in food and beverage applications or where the sensor is exposed to wet environments.

The sensor includes a durable stainless steel connector and PA12 thermoplastic housing that delivers resistance to chemicals and caustic cleaning agents, as well as shock from impact.

The Q42 offers a sensing range of 50mm to all types of metals. This eliminates the need to change the position of the sensors for different metal applications and reduces the number of sensor types needed for plant operations.
