THE new Allen-Bradley 44R AccuSight sensor, now available from Rockwell Automation , is a compact, low cost photoelectric sensor for a wide variety of applications.
Its narrow 27mm-deep housing and patented 360-degree high-visibility LED indicators make AccuSight particularly suitable for use on conveyor systems with shallow side rails.
The 44R AccuSight offers a generous sensing range in each of its three modes -- diffuse, wide angle diffuse and polarised retroreflective.
Available in NPN and PNP output versions, AccuSight also features an active short-circuit protection system with automatic reset, as well as reverse polarity and over-voltage protection.
For ease of installation and maintenance, AccuSight requires no adjustments. The sensor can be mounted by the industry-standard 18mm mounting nose or via through-holes in the body.
For additional application flexibility, AccuSight is also available with either a two metre moulded cable or micro 'quick-disconnect' connector.
