SMARTEYE® PRO

New product

The SMARTEYE® PRO is not a teach mode sensor; it is an automatic sensor. It is a high performance photoelectric sensor that, after the initial setup, can be adjusted by a single push of a button. As a result, there is no guesswork on the part of the operator. Now you can throw away the screwdriver!

The SMARTEYE® PRO is not a teach mode sensor; it is an automatic sensor. It is a high performance photoelectric sensor that, after the initial setup, can be adjusted by a single push of a button. As a result, there is no guesswork on the part of the operator. Now you can throw away the screwdriver!

After selecting the features of your application requirements, the SMARTEYE® PRO sensor is ready to be adjusted. Simply put the target in front of the sensor (proximity mode) and push the green AUTOSET button. From that point on, the sensor will automatically maintain a perfect setting, thanks to the dynamic ACT (Automatic Contrast Tracking) system. The SMARTEYE® PRO sensors are also equipped with a 5-LED Contrast Indicator as well as an Action Alert diagnostic tool that allows the operator to visually substantiate performance.

The Smarteye Pro sensors have the ability to perform a Light State AUTOSET as well as a Dark State AUTOSET (selectable in Option Status Mode). Dark State AUTOSET is useful for maximum range applications, or when the background is shiny or reflective.

The Lock feature ensures the SMARTEYE® PRO sensor is tamperproof. When the Lock feature is enabled in Options Status mode, the sensor's buttons will not allow an AUTOSET to be performed. This feature provides assurance of hassle-free operation operators have come to expect from a SMARTEYE®.

Features

ACT AUTOMATIC CONTRAST

TRACKING

ACT automatically adjusts the sensor as conditions change. This can include dirty or damaged lenses or reflectors, damaged fiberoptics, LED light source or 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 SMARTEYE®-PRO continues to operate requiring far less maintenance than other sensors, making it the choice in tough sensing applications.

EDR® (Pat. No. 5,621,205)

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.

VERSATILITY

Choice of ten “quick change” optical blocks allows use in the proximity, convergent, retroreflective, polarized retroreflective, fiberoptic, or gap sensing modes.

AGS AUTOMATIC GAIN SELECT

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

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.

LED LIGHT SOURCES

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

QUICKSET ADJUSTMENT

This two-step procedure is easy to perform and requires no expertise whatsoever. 1. Establish one of the following conditions: Proximity Mode – Reflect light off object. Beam Break – Remove object from light beam path. 2. Depress the red and green button simultaneously for three seconds.

5-LED DUAL FUNCTION INDICATOR

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' (1.80m) cable.

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.

STATUS INDICATOR

Displays status of five selectable functions: Lock, AUTOSET, and Light/Dark, Auto Trac and Timer.

TIMER

10ms pulse stretcher/off delay.
