WARNING: Not To Be Used for Personnel Protection
Never use this device as a sensing device for personnel protection. Doing so could lead to
serious injury or death. This device does not include the self-checking redundant circuitry necessary
to allow its use in personnel safety applications. A sensor failure or malfunction can cause either an
energized or de-energized sensor output condition.
The R-GAGE sensor emits a well-defined beam of high-frequency radio waves from an internal antenna. Some of this
emitted energy is reflected back to the receiving antenna. Signal processing electronics determine the distance from the
sensor to the object based on the time delay of the return signal. The sensor can be configured to two independent
The two sensing zones are factory pre-set to default distances; they can be reconfigured for different distances using the
DIP switches on the back of the sensor. The sensor is plug-in ready for immediate operation.
The sensitivity was pre-calibrated at the factory, assuming that the sensing field will be clear of obstacles. The sensitivity
can be adjusted using the DIP switches on the back of the sensor.
1 Cabled models only are listed. To order the integral 5-pin M12 quick-disconnect fitting, add suffix "Q" to the model number (for
example, QT50R-xx-AF2Q). QD models require a mating cordset; see Quick Disconnect (QD) Cordsets on page 6.
