Photoelectric amplifier with fiber-optic cables

Exton, Pa.— DIN-rail-mountable OBF photoelectric amplifiers can be fitted with through-beam or reflective fiber-optic cables and are said to be particularly suited for assembly automation and packaging applications. The amplifier has a single LED for marginal signal strength. If sig nal strength degrades because of dirt buildup or misadjustment, the display provides a warning.

Exton, Pa.— DIN-rail-mountable OBF photoelectric amplifiers can be fitted with through-beam or reflective fiber-optic cables and are said to be particularly suited for assembly automation and packaging applications. The amplifier has a single LED for marginal signal strength. If sig

nal strength degrades because of dirt buildup or misadjustment, the display provides a warning. The OBF amplifier is easy

to install due to its automatic setup sequence. When the "automatic" button is depressed, the device measures signal strength in both target present and target not present conditions. It then adjusts the setpoint to the most reliable setting. efector inc.
