Sensing system goes beyond small

Minneapolis, Minn.— PICO-AMP is a miniature, remote photoelectric sensing system consisting of a modulated amplifier that clips to a 35 mm DIN rail, and ultra-small diffuse or opposed-mode remote sensors that fit and function in tight locations. The amplifier includes a four-position switch to select variable modulation frequencies; three fixed, plus Auto-Frequency mode, allowing multipl...

Minneapolis, Minn.— PICO-AMP is a miniature, remote photoelectric sensing system consisting of a modulated amplifier that clips to a 35 mm DIN rail, and ultra-small diffuse or opposed-mode remote sensors that fit and function in tight locations. The amplifier includes a four-position switch to select variable modulation frequencies; three fixed, plus Auto-Frequency mode, allowing multiple PICO-AMP sensors to be placed in close proximity by filtering out effects of optical crosstalk through electronic circuitry. Other amplifier features include light or dark operation selection, sensitivity adjustment, and output Off-delay that allows users to select no delay, or a 50 millisecond pulse stretcher. Banner
