EZP

Smarteye EZ-PRO

High performance, digital photoelectric multi-mode sensor that can be set-up by a single push of a button. There is no guess work on the part of the operator.  From that point on, the sensor will automatically maintain a perfect setting, thanks to the dynamic Automatic Contrast Tracking System (ACT). The EZ-PRO™ AUTOSET routine can also be implemented from a momentary remote switch (i.e. push button or touch screen). The EZ-PRO™ is equipped with a Contrast Indicator as well as an Action Alert diagnostic indicator that allows the operator to visually substantiate performance. When the lock feature is enabled (see advanced features), the EZ-PRO™ sensor is tamper-proof. Now, the sensor will provide you with the automatic, hassle-free performance that you expect from a SMARTEYE®. It can either be side mounted or Din rail mounted.  Epoxy encapsulated, it is ultra rugged and vibration proof.

ACT AUTOMATIC CONTRAST TRACKING
ACT automatically adjusts the sensor as conditions change. This can include dirty or damaged lenses, reflectors, fiberoptics or LED light source, as well as thermal drift, and target variations such as position, orientation, or color. It can also compensate for signal shift or deterioration caused by highspeed input events. The EZ-PRO continues to operate requiring far less maintenance than other sensors, making it the choice in tough sensing applications.

AGS AUTOMATIC GAIN SELECT
This unique feature provides automatic digital selection of the amplifier gain based upon your application requirements.

AUTOSET ADJUSTMENT
The AUTOSET adjustment routine only requires one finger to push one button one time! Even in a dynamic operating condition, with ongoing input events, all you have to do is push a button for a perfect setting.

EDR®
Another unique feature, the EDR (Enhanced Dynamic Range) circuit is digitally controlled. It prevents dark state saturation and expands the operating range without reducing amplifier gain.

ACTION ALERT INDICATOR LED
This indicator provides an early warning to prevent marginal performance when the sensor can no longer provide full contrast deviation as displayed on the Contrast Indicator.

REMOTE AUTOSET
Remotely adjust the sensor from a push button momentary switch or a touch screen to PLC instantaneously. The AUTOSET routine can occur during static or dynamic operating conditions.

5-LED DUAL FUNCTION INDICATOR AND CONTRAST INDICATOR
Provides “at-a-glance” performance data during both setup and operation.

STATUS INDICATOR
Displays status of three selectable functions: Lock, Auto Trac, and Timer; 10ms, 25ms, and 50ms.

VERSATILITY
Choice of ten “quick change” optical blocks allows one sensor to be used in proximity, convergent, retroreflective, polarized retroreflective, and fiberoptic applications.

LED LIGHT SOURCES
Choice of four LED light sources — infrared, red, blue, and white light.

CONNECTIONS
Built-in connector for use with quick disconnect cable or shielded 6' (1.80 m) cable.

MOUNTING OPTIONS
Built-in DIN Rail “snap-on” design, thruhole, or bracket mount

LIGHT SOURCE SELECTION

Infrared Light Source
Invisible light – recommended in opaque object sensing applications. Infrared LED light source provides long-range sensing in either Beam Make or Beam Break modes. Infrared light maximizes the sensor’s ability to penetrate contamination found in harsh environments.

Blue Light Source
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.

 

Red (Visible) Light Source
Visible red LED light source recommended for sensing transparent/translucent objects. Outperforms infrared light in many moderate to low contrast applications. Also recommended for use with plastic fiberoptic light guides.

White Light Source
(Broadband Color Spectrum)
The “White Light” LED light source promotes easy detection of the largest variety of color marks printed on the largest variety of colored web materials. By combining a white LED light source, our Contrast Indicator, and the one-push AUTOSET setup, you have a winning combination of high performance with an easy to use sensor.
