High Intensity

SMARTEYE

SMARTEYE® Light Sources and Receivers have been designed to perform Beam Break or thru-beam sensing tasks where the material or container is dense, the lens is subject to contamination buildup, or for long range sensing in harsh environments. A complete system includes a Dual LED High- Intensity Light Source and a Complementary Receiver.

High Intensity Light Source
The Light Source emits 10 times the optical power, enabling it to easily penetrate cardboard or plastic containers. Applications include verification of container contents, proper fill levels or overlap splice detection of dense materials.

Interchangable optical blocks
The SMARTEYE®, High Intensity, Through Beam sensors can be used with or without optical blocks, or in combination with fiber optic light guides. The fiber optic light guides help narrow the focus of the detector or light source, providing for a more precise concentration of light in applications requiring more pinpoint targeting.

4-TURN OFFSET ADJUSTMENT
Offset vs. gain adjustment maintains sensor high resolution performance regardless of threshold position.  Resolving fine differences in returned light increases stability and versatility of the sensor.  A 4-Turn potentiometer makes it easy to set the sensor to the right threshold setting.

CONTRAST INDICATOR
The 10 LED CONTRAST INDICATOR displays a scaled reading of the level of light received by the sensor’s photo detector. The more light received, the higher the reading. The less light received, the lower the reading.

Applications:

Fiberoptic Beam Break Detection

Fiberoptic Beam Break Detection

Dual LED Light Source Model SLS-2F1 and Dual Detector Receiver Model SR-2F1.

Type F1 allows the use of our fiberoptic light guides. Utilizing a bifurcated light guide, the light energy available from the two LED light sources is used to create a very high intensity light beam. The Dual Detector receiver can be used with one bifurcated light guide and one or two straight light guides.

CONTAINER CONTENTS DETECTION

Container Contents Detection

Dual LED Light Source Model SLS-1 and Dual Detector Receiver Model SR-1.

This basic system is used without optical blocks. It was designed for closeup thru-beam sensing through dense containers and materials. Applications include detecting the presence or absence of contents in plastic containers or cardboard boxes, detecting overlap splices in dense materials, etc.

LONG RANGE HARSH ENVIRONMENT PENETRATION

Long Range Harsh Environment Penetration

Dual LED Light Source Model SLS-2R1 and Dual Detector Receiver Model SR-2R1.

Type R1 Optical Block which allows the light source and receiver to be placed as far apart as 100'. This system is capable of penetrating severe contamination buildup on the lenses. Applications include detecting opaque objects under the most adverse conditions found in the lumber, paper, and steel industries.
