OMNI-BEAM Series—Sensor Heads

Overview

  • Available in opposed, polarized and non-polarized retroreflective, diffuse, convergent, and glass or plastic fiber optic sensing modes
  • Available in convergent and fiber optic models with choice of red, blue or green LED for color differentiation applications
  • Features special polarized retroreflective model for clear object detection
  • Easily interchanges with ac or dc power blocks
  • Features exclusive multiple-LED system that displays received signal strength, sensing contrast and seven different warnings
  • Easily field-programmable for sensing hysteresis, signal strength display scale factor and light/dark operate
  • Ranges to 45 m

AdjustmentsOMNI-BEAM sensor heads are field-programmable for four operating parameters. A set of four programming

DIP switches is located at the base of the sensor head and is accessible with the sensor head removed from the

power block Switch #1:selects the amount of sensing hysteresis
Switch #2:selects the alarm output configurations
Switch #3:selects light operate (switch #3 OFF) or dark operate (switch #3 ON)
Switch #4:selects the STANDARD (switch #4 OFF) or Fine (switch #4 ON) scale factor for the Display And Trouble Alert (D.A.T.A.) light signal strength indicator array
Sensitivity:15-turn slotted brass screw sensitivity (Gain) adjustment potentiometer (clutched at both ends of travel).
IndicatorsSense and Load indictor LEDs are locted on the top of the sensor head on either side of the D.A.T.A array. Sense LED:indicates when a target has been sensed
Load LED:lights whenever the load (sensor output is energized)
Display And Trouble Alert (D.A.T.A):self-diagnostic system located on the top of the sensor head warns of marginal sensing conditions usually before a sensing failure occurs (except on model OSBFAC)
ConstructionSensor heads are molded of rugged thermoplastic polyester; top view window is polycarbonate; acrylic lenses; stainless-steel hardware.
Environmental RatingMeets NEMA standards 1, 2, 3, 3S, 4, 12 and 13; IEC IP66 when assembled to power block
Operating ConditionsTemperture:-40° to +70° C
Relative humidity:90% @ 50° C (non-condensing)
