The optical signal levels are rated inherently safe Ex op is, allowing the sensor to be safely deployed in all categories of explosive atmospheres and hazardous locations - mines, gaseous and dust.
The U-Beam sensor is a turn-key optical solution for implementing:
- Gear tooth sensor
- Edge detector
- Code reader
- Promity sensor
The controller meets Functional Safety requirements by implementing a known default failure state. The Controller provides both +5V and +24V line driver outputs as well as a frequency-to-voltage analog output.
