X-Pro XPC General Purpose Sensor with Data Port

The SMARTEYE® X-PRO XPC is a versatile general purpose sensor with built in data port. Its patented communication technology allows for fast access and operational status to and from the sensor. This unique photoelectric sensor is designed to be used in any application where physical contact of the sensor is either restricted, undesirable, or adds too much time to production line throughput. Its the kind of sensor innovation you would expect from TRI-TRONICS®. We've been pushing the envelope for half a century and continue to offer customers superior performance sensors for their unique application requirements.

10 LED DUAL-FUNCTION BAR GRAPH
Contrast Indicator – Provides “at-aglance” performance data.
Lock – When this option is enabled the sensor becomes tamperproof. Note: The remote AUTOSET and programming are not affected by the Lock option.
MEM 1 through MEM 5 - LED indicates MEM location selected. NOTE: Any changes to the sensor will automatically be saved to current MEM # location.

EDR®
(Patent No. 5,621,205)
EDR® (Enhanced Dynamic Range) circuit prevents dark state saturation and expands the operating range without reducing amplifier gain.

ACT
ACT (Automatic Contrast Tracking) automatically adjusts the sensor for diminishing conditions. Ex. Dirty environment, scratched lenses, thermal drift, or LED light power.

AGS
AGS (Automatic Gain Select) is an unique feature that provides automatic digital selection of amplifier gain based upon your sensing requirements.

AUTOSET ADJUSTMENT
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.

(Note: The buttons on the sensor are inactive when in communication mode; if COM/LOCK LED is on or blinking)

COMMUNICATIONS
The XPC is available in four communications options; RS-485 or RS-232 in either MODBUS ASCII or MODBUS RTU protocol. RS-485 for multi-drop applications where sensors need to be addressed and bussed together, or RS-232 for single-drop applications where the sensor is behind safety interlocks, or in hard-to-reach areas that restrict easy access. RS-485 units can have up to 128 sensors per node, depending on cable length. Baud rate and addresses are user selected and defined when utilizing the EyewareXPC software, or proper commands as defined by the Command Set.

RESPONSE TIME SELECTION
60µs, 125µs, and 450µs available.

AUX IO
AUX IO line can be configured as:

  • Remote AUTOSET
    Remotely AUTOSET the sensor by applying a momentary contact closure from the Remote AUTOSET input wire to negative as shown in the wiring diagram. The Remote AUTOSET command will duplicate the last manual AUTOSET.
  • Remote Input
  • Action Alert Output
  • Output Mode: On
  • Output Mode: Off

Note: Configure AUX IO by using complimentary EyewareXPC software or Full Featured Command Set.

CONNECTIONS
Built-in 8-pin M12 Connector.

MOUNTING OPTIONS
Built-in DIN rail “Snap-On” design, through hole, 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.

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.
