UVS

Stealth-UV

The SMARTEYE® STEALTH-UV sensor is a special purpose sensor designed to detect the presence of invisible fluorescent materials contained in or added to chalks, inks, paint, greases, glue, or optical brighteners found in labels, paper, tape, string, etc. The sensor contains an ultraviolet (UV) solid state light source that is used to excite the luminescent materials to fluoresce in the visible range. The sensor’s detector then responds to the visible fluorescing light. When the received fluorescing light level (displayed on the Contrast Indicator) reaches a level of “4” or above, the NPN and PNP output transistors will switch to the opposite state.

AUTOMATIC GAIN ADJUSTMENT
This unique feature provides automatic digital selection of amplifier gain based upon your sensing requirements.

AUTOSET ADJUSTMENT
The Light State AUTOSET adjustment routine only requires the push of one button, one time. Simply place the UV target in view and press the AUTOSET button for 1/2 second.

TIMER
When the "OFF" delay pulse stretcher is enabled, the output duration is extended by 15 milliseconds. Enabling the Timer allows ample time for the controller to respond to short duration inputs.

CONTRAST INDICATOR
An 8 Bar contrast indicator provides "at-a-glance" performance data, both statically and dynamically.

HIGH SPEED

  • 200µs for UVS-1 thru 4
  • 750µs for UVS-5
  • 300µs for UVS-6

Special fibers not required
Standard glass fiber optic light guides is a very cost effective way of getting the sensor into tight mechanical positions, or caustic and harsh environments that would be harmful for standard lensed sensors. Not having to use extremely high cost "special" fiber optic light guides for UV detection offers a solution that is very reasonable compared to the competition.
