Allen-Bradley VisiSight Photoelectric Sensors from Rockwell Automation
Allen-Bradley VisiSight line of general purpose photoelectric sensors from Rockwell Automation offers a full range of sensing modes in a sealed, compact, cavity-free housing that minimizes collection of dust and debris and allows easy sensor cleanup.
For manufacturers looking for an economical, global and easy-to-apply sensing solution, the new Allen-Bradley VisiSight line of general purpose photoelectric sensors from Rockwell Automation offers a full range of sensing modes in a sealed, compact, cavity-free housing that minimizes collection of dust and debris and allows easy sensor cleanup, the company says.
VisiSight Photoelectric Sensors are available in :
- Diffuse models with 800-millimeter sensing range that provide adjustable sensitivity;
- Polarized retro reflective models with 3.5-meter sensing range in adjustable or fixed sensitivity versions;
- Transmitted beam models that provide 10-meter sensing distance; and
- Infrared LED source models for crosstalk immunity.
Rectangular housing of all VisiSight models meets the standard 25.4-millimeter footprint. For greater application flexibility, an optional, snap-on, 18-millimeter, nose-mount adaptor is available.
All models include a red light to help with alignment during setup and maintenance. Additionally, to warn of an unstable sensing situation, a stability indicator flashes if signal level is too close to the detection threshold. Patented application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) used in the VisiSight photoelectric sensors also offers linear sensitivity adjustment and noise immunity.
Said to be ideal for material-handling, packaging and assembly applications, the 42JS VisiSight photoelectric sensor product line addresses small form factor needs in industries, including life sciences, pharmaceutical, food and beverage, home health, and beauty.
