More info

The SMARTEYE® X-PRO XP10 is the highest speed (10μs) dual-function sensor in the world. This dual-function sensor is designed to be a precision registration mark sensor with 5μs repeatability, and a standard photoelectric sensor for any high speed application, in one package.

Mark Mode allows the user quick and easy set-up for detection of registration marks by performing an AUTOSET with the background in view. When in Mark Mode, the sensor will automatically configure to give an output on the mark.

Standard Mode allows the user independent control of the AUTOSET mode, (Light State or Dark State), and output, (Light ON or Dark ON). Standard Mode provides the greatest flexibility for general purpose applications.

Five Memory Locations are available to be used in either Mark Mode or Standard Mode when the Enable option is selected. These Memory locations can store all options and AUTOSET settings for up to five different application requirements. This Memory feature allows fast changeover when running several different types of materials on the same machine. Additionally, when the Enable option is selected, the sensor has the ability to be programmed by a PLC or other device via the Remote AUTOSET input wire. You can access any option, Memory location, or AUTOSET routine through this uniquely designed input feature.

No other sensor in the world gives you these high performance features packaged together in one compact design. The SMARTEYE® X-PRO XP10 photoelectric sensor from Tri-Tronics is the most comprehensive sensor available in its class.

Features

AGS™ AUTOMATIC GAIN SELECT

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

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.

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.

HIGH SPEED

10μs response time when responding to light or dark state. 5μs repeatability.

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.

CONNECTIONS

Built-in 5-pin M12 connector, or 6' Cable.

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.

MOUNTING OPTIONS

Built-in DIN rail “Snap-On” design, through hole, or bracket mount.

Special Features

REMOTE PROGRAMMING

The Remote Programming feature of the SMARTEYE® 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 SMARTEYE® 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 SMARTEYE® 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.
