Overview

  • Single push-button programming of advanced sensing options
  • Five sensor configuration options:
    • Static Teach
    • Dynamic Teach
    • Light Set
    • Dark Set
    • Window Set
  • Five standard sensing modes:
    • Visible diffuse
    • Infrared diffuse
    • Convergent
    • Polarized retroreflective
    • Plastic fiber optic
  • Configurable output options: Light Operate or Dark Operate and a 30 ms off delay
  • 10 to 30 VDC operation with 100 mA NPN or PNP output, depending on model
  • Teach wire input for remote configuration of the sensor
