EZ-EYE™ miniature photoelectric sensors fulfill the need for an affordable, push-button sensor that is EZ to align and EZ to adjust. Optimized for machine control automation, the setup is easy with the unique one-touch AUTOSET routine. Simply place the sensor in the Light State condition and push the button once for a perfect setting.

EZ to select higher excess gain… just tap the button twice to increase the excess gain (sensitivity). Note: Initiating the AUTOSET routine followed by tapping the button emulates a screwdriver adjustment.

Unique lensed optical blocks are molded of solid, optical-grade, high-impact plastic. This innovative concept helps to prevent condensation on the inside of the lens. Ten varieties of optical blocks are available for operating the EZ-EYE, such as retroreflective, polarized retroreflective, proximity, fiberoptic or convergent sensing modes. A simple change of the optical block can be very useful in determining the best sensing mode for your specific sensing task. These inexpensive, interchangeable optical blocks eliminate the need for discarding a complete sensor in the case of damage to the optical block.

TheEZ-EYE™photoelectric sensor by TRI-TRONICS® fulfills the need for an affordable, push-button sensor that is EZ to align and EZ to adjust.

FEATURES & BENEFITS

  • EZ to adjust...AUTOSET routine requires a single push of a button.

  • EZ to align...Flash Rate Indicator monitors received light intensity.

  • EZ to select higher excess gain...tap the button twice to increase excess gain (sensitivity). Note: Initiating the AUTOSET routine followed by tapping the button emulates a screwdriver adjustment.

  • EZ to select sensing mode...choose from ten completely interchangeable optical blocks.

  • EZ-EYE™ sensors are available with either infrared (IR) or red LED light sources.

  • EZ EYE™ sensors are equipped with both NPN and PNP output transistors.

  • Power supply requirements: 10 to 24 VDC.

  • Responds to sensor’s pulsed modulated light source... resulting in high immunity to most ambient light, including strobes.
