Below you will find different kind of documents you can download to get to know more about our sensors, to get help with the installation of the sensors or you can just take a look in our approvals. If you need any additional information, please don't hesitate to contact us.
All downloads related to our SIL2/PLd sensors can also be found here.
Would you like to know more about what DIS Sensors has got to offer? Just take a look in our brochure to get an overview of our sensors and controls.
All DIS Sensors have a unique product code from which the specifications of each product can be recognised. In the documents below, you can see exactly what all the numbers and letters stand for.
Our family overviews provide clear information about the features and specifications of the different series of sensors we offer.
Below you will find different kind of manuals which will help you to get the most out of your sensors as possible. If you experience problems installing or using the sensor after all, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

|QG40N configurator manual|
|QG40N configurator preliminary flyer|
This document describes the RS232 communication possibilities with the QG65/76 analog sensors for internal DIS-use (automated calibration, configurator software etc.). Although made for internal DIS-use our customers are free to use RS232 communication with the sensor as long as they can adjust to our interface-convention described.
EDS (Electronic Data Sheet) files are based on CANopen standards and contain information about the features and characteristics of sensors. With the help of the "CAN_manual & EDS-file selector", you can search for the EDS file that corresponds to your sensor. When you have found the correct EDS file you can download it below.

Stp files are graphic files (3D) that can be used by CAD software to draw a component (for example a sensor) in your machine.
Below you will find the stp files that are available for the different sensors we offer.
QG30 (cable out)
QG40 (1 x M12 5-pole)
QG65 (reinforced plastic – 1 x M12 5-pole)
QG65 (reinforced plastic – 1 x M12 8-pole)
QG65 (reinforced plastic – 2 x M12 5-pole)
QG65 (zinc – 2 x M12 5-pole)
QG76 (stainless steel – 2x M12 5-pole)
Some sensor types can be configured by the customer. Below you will find an overview of the possibilities:
To configure sensors from this series DIS sensors has developed a tailor-made configurator:
This configurator is connected to the sensor and the USB port of your PC. A PC application will show all the options available. The tool is capable of reconfiguring calibrated QG40N sensors with a standard PC. It can read the actual sensor settings, shows all relevant parameters and offers the possibility to reconfigure the device while keeping the calibration data.
QG40N series configurator 3.0 is the current version we sell, it is compatible with the PC application V3.10. Customers who bought the QG40N series configurator v1.1 (or other versions before 3.0), need to download the old PC application.
For QG40N series configurator v3.0 (and higher)
1. buy the required hardware - order code: 12380
2. download and install the PC application: PC software v3.11
3. download datasheet for G40N configurator
More information can be found on the manual:
For QG40N series configurator 1.1 (or other versions before 3.0)
We don’t offer this old version anymore, but you can still download the PC application and support document on our website.
1. download and install the PC application: PC software v2.0
2. download manual for QG40N configurator
The old configurator 1.1 (or other version before 3.0) could face problems with installing the PC application in windows 10, please read the solution here:
The breakout cable is a very handy tool if your sensor has a cable instead of a connector. It has 3 clips that can be easily clipped to the cable of the sensor. And at the other end is an M12 male connector which you can connect directly to the configurator. If you wish to order the breakout cable, please use order code 12345.

To configure sensors from this series DIS sensors has developed a tailor made configurator. This configurator is connected to the sensor and the RS232 port (or optional USB port) of your PC. A special program will show all the options available.
The tool is capable to reconfigure calibrated QG65/QG76 sensors with a standard PC. It can read the actual sensor settings, shows all relevant parameters and offers the possibility to reconfigure the device while keeping the calibration data.
To run the QG65 configurator you need to:
1. buy the required hardware: order code '10855' (QG65 configuration cable)
2. optional: buy the USB RS232 adapter: order code '11809' (USB to RS232 adapter cable)
3. download and install the software
4. download the manual
Optional: the RS232 protocol developed for this configurator can also be used by end-customers. This turns the sensor from an analog output sensor into an RS232 output sensor. The sensor functions as a slave and gives angle information via RS232 on request only. Download the protocol description here.
Via the CAN object dictionary, many sensor parameters can be configured. All possibilities are described in the appropriate CAN user manual.
There is no special configurator available because each customer is using the configuration capabilities of their own CAN master/standard CAN programming tools like Codesys or Peak CANopen Magic.
