AGS™ AUTOMATIC GAIN SELECT
This unique feature provides automatic digital selection of amplifier gain based upon your sensing requirements.
The AUTOSET adjustment routine only requires the push of one button, one time. Oftentimes, in dynamic operating conditions, all you have to do is push the button for a perfect setting. This is dependent upon at least a 4:1 duty cycle ratio.
AUTOSET/ REMOTE PROGRAMMING (Patent No. 6,950,778)
Remotely AUTOSET or program the sensor’s multiple options by applying a sequential momentary contact closure from the AUTOSET input wire to negative as shown in the wiring diagram. The remote AUTOSET command will duplicate the last manual AUTOSET.
EDR° (Patent No. 5,621,205)
Another unique feature is the digitally controlled EDR (Enhanced Dynamic Range) circuit. It prevents dark state saturation and expands the operating range without reducing amplifier gain.
Built-in DIN rail “Snap-On” design, through hole, or bracket mount.
10 LED DUAL-FUNCTION BAR GRAPH
Contrast Indicator – Provides “at-aglance” performance data.
Status Indicator – Displays status of selectable options:
Lock – When this option is enabled the sensor becomes tamperproof. Note: The Remote AUTOSET and Remote Programming are not affected by the Lock option.
Mark - When this feature is enabled, the sensor buttons function like a Mark•Eye® PRO: Push and hold yellow button for light background and red button for dark background.
Pulse Stretcher (PS) – When the “OFF” delay pulse stretcher is enabled, the output duration is extended by 10 or 20 milliseconds (not additive). Enabling the Timer allows ample time for the controller to respond. The time durations of the gap between marks must be longer than the selected delay.
Enable – This option provides access to MEM-1 thru MEM-5 locations and enables remote programming. NOTE: Any changes to the sensor will automatically be saved to current MEM # location.
10μs response time when responding to light or dark state. 5μs repeatability.
Built-in 5-pin M12 connector, or 6' Cable.
The Remote Programming feature of the X-PRO XP10 allows the customer to configure, AUTOSET, and tweak the sensor using a PLC pulsetrain, HMI, NPN transistor output, or momentary pushbutton switch to 0 VDC/ground. This provides the customer with control over every aspect of the sensor configuration without having to physically touch the sensor. If you have several sensors on your machine; have sensors buried deep within the mechanical structure of the machine; or have your sensors in safe areas behind interlocks… you can easily access these sensors remotely to perform a "digital changeover" due to this unique, special feature.
FIVE MEMORY LOCATIONS
There are Five Memory locations available to store various configurations of the sensor for particular applications. For instance, if you have 5 different web materials…the background colors are different, the mark colors are different, and the marks are different sizes…you would need to perform a different AUTOSET for each background, and you might need to add a Pulse Stretcher timer for the different sized marks. The X-PRO XP10 sensor allows you to store and recall that information so the setup time is eliminated completely, reducing down-time and change-over complications when running different materials. This feature is also a benefit for any other application with changing conditions; different sized bottles, different colored labels, varying background materials, varying product textures, etc.
Packaging Five Memory locations together with the unique Remote Programming feature above makes the X-PRO XP10 sensor the fastest sensor in the world for "rapid digital changeover", as well as for speed and accuracy.
NOTE: Any changes to the sensor will automatically be saved to current MEM # location.
