Type O4, Proximity Wide beam optics useful for short-range sensing of transparent, translucent, opaque, or irregular shaped shiny objects.
LED Light Source
Infrared = 880nm Best choice in most opaque object sensing tasks. Provides longest possible sensing range in either Beam Make or Beam Break sensing modes. Best choice in hostile environments; useful in penetrating lens contamination. Preferred for use with small glass fiberoptic light guides Note: Do not use IR light with plastic fiberoptic light guides. Preferred when sensing dark colored objects in the proximity (Beam Make) mode, i.e., black, blue, green, etc. Useful in penetrating containers for verification of contents; also useful in detecting overlapped splices in dense materials. Color perception; tends to favor blue colored objects.
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
