February 2, 2017 – TT Electronics, a global provider of engineered electronics for performance critical applications, introduced its Photologic V OPB9000 reflective optical sensor for industrial and medical applications. The sensor provides edge and presence detection of reflective media under a range of ambient light conditions.
The OPB9000, under the OPTEK brand, is suitable for a variety of applications including: industrial printing, dispensing, manufacturing automation, safety and security devices, portable lab/medical equipment.
The OPB9000 is a reflective, CMOS logic output sensor with programmable sensitivity, output polarity, and drain select. The self-calibration feature avoids the need for constant recalibration as the LED ages. Temperature compensation and automatic gain control features enable it to function in the most demanding and dynamic environmental conditions where consistent performance from sensor devices is critical. The response time of 6µs ensures detection for time-critical applications.
The OPB9000 is designed to eliminate circuit complexity and reduce board space requirements by up to 80% with its integrated analog front end and digital interface. It combines an infrared emitter and integrated logic sensor in a miniature 4.0 mm x 2.2 mm x 1.5 mm surface-mount package.
