SMARTEYE PRO General Purpose Photoelectric Sensor

The SMARTEYE® PRO™ is a high performance, digital photoelectric multi-mode sensor that can be adjusted by a single push of a button. As a result, 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 PRO™ is equipped with a Contrast Indicator as well as an Action Alert diagnostic output signal and visual indicator that allows the operator to visually substantiate performance. When the lock feature is enabled (see advanced features), the 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 rugged and simple to adjust.

ACT AUTOMATIC CONTRAST TRACKING
ACT automatically adjusts the sensor as conditions change. This can include dirty or damaged lenses or reflectors, damaged fiberoptics, LED light source or 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 SMARTEYE® 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.

QUICKSET ADJUSTMENT
This two-step procedure is easy to perform and requires no expertise whatsoever.

  1. Establish one of the following conditions: Proximity Mode – Reflect light off object. Beam Break – Remove object from light beam path.
  2. Depress the red and green button simultaneously for three seconds.

 
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.

TIMER
10ms pulse stretcher/off delay.

EDR® (Pat. No. 5,621,205)
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.

5-LED DUAL FUNCTION INDICATOR

CONTRAST INDICATOR
Provides “at-a-glance” performance data during both setup and operation.

STATUS INDICATOR
Displays status of five selectable functions: Lock, AUTOSET, and Light/Dark, Auto Trac and Timer.

VERSATILITY
Choice of ten “quick change” optical blocks allows use in the proximity, convergent, retroreflective, polarized retroreflective, fiberoptic, or gap sensing modes.

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

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

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.
