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 4.0 is the current version we sell. All versions higher than 3.0 are 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 v3.15
3. download datasheet for QG40N 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.
