QT50U Series Sensors with Analog Output
Long-Range Ultrasonic Sensors with TEACH-Mode Programming 
Not To Be Used for Personnel Protection
Never use these products as sensing devices for personnel protection. Doing so could lead to serious injury or death.
These sensors do NOT include the self-checking redundant circuitry necessary to allow their use in personnel safetyapplications. A sensor failure or malfunction can cause either an energized or de-energized sensor output condition. Consultyour current Banner Safety Products catalog for safety products which meet OSHA, ANSI and IEC standards for personnelprotection.
Fast, easy-to-use TEACH-Mode programming; no potentiometer adjustmentsScalable output automatically distributes the output signal over the width of theprogrammed sensing window.Minimum and Maximum window limits can be adjusted independently.Selectable 0 to 10V dc or 4 to 20 mA output, selected via DIP-switchAccess to bank of 8 DIP switches through sealed cover for superior userfunctionalityRugged encapsulated design for harsh environmentsUnique housing design allows for multiple mounting configurations.Choose models with integral 2 m (6.5') or 9 m (30') cable, or withMini-style or Euro-style quick-disconnect fittingWide operating range: -20° to +70°C (-4° to +158°F)Temperature compensationProgrammable for either positive or negative output slope
* NOTES:• 9 m cables are available by adding suffix “
” to the model number of a cabled sensor (e.g.,
QT50ULB w/30
).• A model with a QD connector requires a mating cable; see page 10.

QT50U Series Sensor — Analog Output
Principles of Operation
Ultrasonic sensors emit one or multiple pulses of ultrasonic energy, which travelthrough the air at the speed of sound. A portion of this energy reflects off the targetand travels back to the sensor. The sensor measures the total time required for theenergy to reach the target and return to the sensor. The distance to the object is thencalculated using the following formula: 
D =ct 2D
= distance from the sensor to the target
= speed of sound in air
= transit time for the ultrasonic pulseTo improve accuracy, an ultrasonic sensor may average the results of several pulsesbefore outputting a new value.
Temperature Effects
The speed of sound is dependent upon the composition, pressure and temperature ofthe gas in which it is traveling. For most ultrasonic applications, the composition andpressure of the gas are relatively fixed, while the temperature may fluctuate.In air, the speed of sound varies with temperature according to the followingapproximation:
= 20
273 + T
 = speed of sound in meters per second
= temperature in °COr, in English units: 
= 49
460 + T
= speed of sound in feet per second
= temperature in °FThe speed of sound changes roughly 1% per 6° C (10° F). QT50U series ultrasonicsensors have temperature compensation available, via the 8-pin DIP switch.Temperature compensation will reduce the error due to temperature by about 90%.NOTE: If the sensor is measuring across a temperature gradient, the compensation willbe less effective.
Analog Output Slope
The U-GAGE QT50U sensor may be programmed for either a positive or a negativeoutput slope, depending on which conditions are taught for the Min and Max Analoglimits (see Figure 1). If the Min Analog limit is the Near Window setting and the MaxAnalog limit is the Far Window setting, then the slope will be positive. If the opposite istrue, then the slope will be negative.

Sensor Programming
Two TEACH methods may be used to program the sensor: by teaching individualminimum and maximum limits, or by using the auto-window feature to center asensing window around the taught position. The sensor may be programmed either viaits two push buttons, or via a remote switch. Remote programming may also be usedto disable the push buttons, preventing anyone on the production floor from adjustingany of the programming settings. To access this feature, connect the gray wire of thesensor to 0 - 2V dc, with a remote programming switch connected between them.NOTE: The impedance of the Remote Teach input is 12 k
.Programming is accomplished by following the sequence of input pulses (seeprogramming procedures starting on page 5). The duration of each pulse(corresponding to a push button “click”), and the period between multiple pulses, aredefined as “T”:
0.04 seconds < T < 0.8 seconds
The QT50U features an 8-pin DIP switch bank for user setup. The DIP switches arelocated behind the access cover on the back of the sensor as shown in Figure 2.A spanner tool is included with each sensor for removing the cover.
