More info

The SMARTEYE® EZ-PRO™ is a high performance, automatic photoelectric sensor that can be adjusted by a single push of a button. As a result, there is no guess work on the part of the operator.

That’s all there is to it! From that point on, the sensor will automatically maintain a perfect setting, thanks to the dynamic Automatic Contrast Tracking System (ACT). The EZ-PRO AUTOSET routine can also be implemented from a momentary remote switch (i.e. pushbutton or touch screen). The EZ-PRO is equipped with a Contrast Indicator as well as an Action Alert diagnostic indicator that allows the operator to visually substantiate performance. When the lock feature is enabled (see advanced features), the EZ-PRO sensor is tamperproof. Now, the sensor will provide you with the automatic, hassle-free performance that you expect from a SMARTEYE®.

Features

ACT AUTOMATIC CONTRAST

TRACKING

ACT automatically adjusts the sensor as conditions change. This can include dirty or damaged lenses, reflectors, fiberoptics or LED light source, as well as thermal drift, and target variations such as position, orientation, or color. It can also compensate for signal shift or deterioration caused by highspeed input events. The EZ-PRO continues to operate requiring far less maintenance than other sensors, making it the choice in tough sensing applications.

ACTION ALERT INDICATOR LED

This indicator provides an early warning to prevent marginal performance when the sensor can no longer provide full contrast deviation as displayed on the Contrast Indicator.

VERSATILITY

Choice of ten “quick change” optical blocks allows one sensor to be used in proximity, convergent, retroreflective, polarized retroreflective, and fiberoptic applications.

AGS AUTOMATIC GAIN SELECT

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

REMOTE AUTOSET

Remotely adjust the sensor from a push button momentary switch or a touch screen to PLC instantaneously. The AUTOSET routine can occur during static or dynamic operating conditions.

LED LIGHT SOURCES

Choice of four LED light sources — infrared, red, blue, and white light.

AUTOSET ADJUSTMENT

The AUTOSET adjustment routine only requires one finger to push one button one time! Even in a dynamic operating condition, with ongoing input events, all you have to do is push a button for a perfect setting.

5-LED DUAL FUNCTION INDICATOR

AND CONTRAST INDICATOR

Provides “at-a-glance” performance data during both setup and operation.

CONNECTIONS

Built-in connector for use with quick disconnect cable or shielded 6' (1.80 m) cable.

EDR®

Another unique feature, the EDR (Enhanced Dynamic Range) circuit is digitally controlled. It prevents dark state saturation and expands the operating range without reducing amplifier gain.

STATUS INDICATOR

Displays status of three selectable functions: Lock, Auto Trac, and Timer; 10ms, 25ms, and 50ms.

MOUNTING OPTIONS

Built-in DIN Rail “snap-on” design, thruhole, or bracket mount.
