Type R4, Retroreflective Very narrow beam optics designed to sense reflectors or reflective materials at long range. Designed for Beam Break sensing.
LED Light Source
Blue = 480nm Useful for detecting translucent, transparent, plastic, or glass objects in the retroreflective mode when using the R4 optical block. Used as blue filter for color perception advantages, i.e. resolving yellow vs. white colored objects or printed registration marks.
10 to 30 VDC
45mA (exclusive of load)
(1) NPN and (1) PNP sensor output transistor
Sensor outputs can sink or source up to 150mA (current limited)
All outputs are continuously short circuit protected
Light/Dark state response = 300 microseconds
"Factory-set" for high resolution - less than one bar on the Contrast Indicator
Yellow/Blue - AUTOSET
Set status of three options: 5) Lock, 4) Auto-Trac, 3) Timers: 10ms, 25ms, 50ms
5-LED bar graph functions in one of two modes: 1. Contrast Indicator – displays scaled reading of sensor’s response to contrasting light levels (light to dark) 2. Status Indicator – Displays status of 5 selectable options: Red LED output indicator = Illuminates when the sensor’s output transistors are “on.” NOTE: If Output LED flashes, a short circuit condition exists Amber LED = Illuminates when in the options select mode Yellow LED = Illuminates when action alert is activated. Also indicates when ACT adjusts sensor
Responds to sensor’s pulse modulated light source, resulting in high immunity to most ambient light, including indirect sunlight or strobes
