Product Specifications

Supply Voltage and Current20 to 250V ac (50/60 Hz) Average current:20 mA
Peak current:200 mA @ 20V ac, 500 mA @ 120V ac, 750 mA @ 250V ac
RangeOpposed:60 m
Polarized Retroreflective:6 m, range is specified using one model BRT-3 retroreflector
Fixed-field:0-200, 0-400 or 0-600 cutoff, depending on model
Supply Protection CircuitryProtected against transient voltages
Output ConfigurationSPST solid-state ac switch; three-wire hookup: Light operate (LO) or dark operate (DO), depending on model Light operate:Output conducts when the sensor sees its own (or the emitter’s) modulated light
Dark operate:Output conducts when sensor sees dark
Output Rating300 mA max. (continious); Fixed-field derate 5 mA/° C above +50° C Inrush capability:1 A for 20 milliseconds, non-repetitive
OFF-state leakage current:less than 100 µA
ON-state voltage drop:3V @ 300 mA ac; 2V @ 15 mA ac
Output Protection CircuitryProtected against false pulse on power-up
Output Response TimeResponse time is independent of signal strength Opposed:16 milliseconds ON; 8 milliseconds OFF

Delay at Power-up100 milliseconds
RepeatabilityRepeatability is independent of signal strength. Opposed:2 milliseconds
Polarized Retroreflective and Fixed-field:4 milliseconds
Indicators2 LED Indicators:Green and Yellow
Green ON steady:power to sensor is ON
Yellow ON steady:sensor sees light
Yellow flashing:marginal excess gain (1-1.5x) in light condition
ConstructionThermoplastic polyester housing with polycarbonate or acrylic lenses. One jam nut is included with each sensor.
