The Model PRMDC is a miniature, DC powered, Proximity (Diffuse) photo-electric sensor with a 8' maximum detecting distance. This sensor requires no special reflectors or reflective tapes and the limited 8' sensing range reduces detection of background reflections. It is ideally suited for detection of transparent or translucent objects, parts ejected from presses, and rotating targets such as pulley spokes. A modulated infrared LED light beam provides immunity to ambient light. In operation, the modulated light beam is reflected by the object to be detected. Actual sensing range is determined by the surface area and the amount of reflectivity of the object. This reflected light is sensed by a photo-transistor, amplified, demodulated and then energizes the outputs.
The sensor provides application flexibility in counting, positioning and object detection. The unit is interchangeable with conventional 12 mm threaded barrel-type photo-electrics and inductive proximity sensors. The small size, in addition to various mounting options, greatly increases alignment ease and application possibilities.
The unit can be powered by supplies ranging from +10 to +30 VDC and are reverse polarity protected. The complementary NPN open collector (Current Sinking) outputs are protected from continuous overload and inductive load transients and are rated to 150 mA, with low saturation voltage and less than 10 µA off-state leakage current. In addition, no false outputs are generated at power-up. The sensor has a 6 inch long quick disconnect Pico-style connector which provides supply input and transistor output.
The miniature sensor offers a digital gain adjustment that uses a single sealed push button to streamline installation and setup. The user simply holds the button in to achieve maximum sensitivity, and then can click the button for seven decremental settings to fine tune for your application. They also feature smart new status indicators. Green and amber LEDs display operating status from three directions, indicate power on and light sensed and flash to signal maximum gain, gain reduced one increment and minimum gain conditions. You can tell operating status of your sensors at a glance.
