Reflective optical sensor meant to provide reliability and versatility


TT058-Reflective_Light_Sensor_OPB9000-pressimageTT Electronics has introduced its Photologic V OPB9000 reflective optical sensor for industrial and medical applications. The sensor is meant to provide dependable edge and presence detection of reflective media within a range of ambient lighting conditions, according to the company.

The Optek brand OPB9000 can be used for industrial printing, dispensing, manufacturing automation, safety and security devices, and portable lab/medical equipment.

This new CMOS logic output sensor is reflective and has programmable sensitivity, output polarity and drain select. It features unparalleled 25+ kilolux ambient light immunity and a wide operating temperature range. It has no need for constant recalibration because it features self-calibration as the LED ages. The OPB9000 has temperature compensation and automatic gain controls for functionality in dynamic environmental conditions that require consistent performance from sensor devices. It also has a high-speed detection response time of 6µs.

“We addressed a number of real work challenges that affect sensor design and their ability to perform to the highest level with this product,”David Kertes, vice presdient of global sales and marketing at TT Electronics, said in a news release. TT Electronics is a global provider of engineered electronics for performance critical applications.

The OPB9000 eliminates circuit complexity and reduces board space by 80%. It has a fully integrated analogue front end and digital interface. Its infrared emitter and integrated logic sensor surface-mount package measures 4mm x 2.2mm x 1.5mm.

How do you know your technology is disruptive enough to break conventional wisdom?

textadimage Stan Rowe knows a little something about bringing disruptive technology to market. The current Edwards Lifesciences CSO was in on the ground floor of two of medtech's most disruptive treatments, stents and transcatheter aortic valve replacement.

On December 12th, Rowe will sit down with MassDevice editor Brad Perriello for a long ranging discussion about the inside story on how these technologies came to market and what Rowe learned along the way.
