Question

Are Photomicro Sensors with the Light-ON/Dark-ON selectable operating mode available?

Answer

Yes. The EE-SX67[] Series for Through-beam type (with slot), the EE-SY671/672 for Reflex type are available.

1. Photomicro Sensors "EE-SX67[]" (Channel type/Direct Current Optical Type)

Built-in models with 5 to 100mA direct switching capability

Light-ON⁄Dark-ON selectable operating mode (output configuration)

Response frequency as high as 1 kHz

Easy operation monitoring with bright light indicator

Wide operating voltage range from 5 to 24 VDC

Models (EE-SX[][][]A,[][][]R) with operation indicators that are lit when light is interrupted (when sensing objects are detected) are available.

*1. The Dark-ON⁄Light-ON (selectable) models are normally used as dark-ON models. To use them as light-ON models, short-circuit the L terminal and positive (+) terminal.

An EE-1001-1 Connector with the terminals already short-circuited is also available. Additionally, Connector "EE-1001", "EE-1009", Cable Connector "EE-1006", "EE-1010", and Robot Cable Connector "EE-1010-R" with the open terminals are available.

*2. Model numbers ending in suffix A (e.g., EE-SX670A) indicate models for which the operation indicator will turn ON when the light is interrupted.

*3. Model numbers ending in suffix R (e.g., EE-SX670R) indicate models for which the operation indicator will turn ON when the light is interrupted.



2. Photomicro Sensor "EE-SY671⁄672" (Diffuse Reflex ⁄Direct Current Optical Type)

Models with sensitivity adjuster

Easy adjustment with a built-in sensitivity adjuster

Easy operation monitoring with bright light indicator

Compact design with a special built-in IC makes it possible to directly switch currents up to 100mA.

Wide operating voltage range from 5 to 24 VDC

Smooth connection with Programmable Controllers as well as a variety of ICs and Relays is possible.
