Surface Mount Photomicrosensor Plugs The Printer Gap, Says Omron
Addressing the need for surface mount devices for applications such as 3D printers, mini printers, e-locks and factory automation equipment, Omron Electronics Components Europe has introduced the EE-SY1201 reflective PMS (photomicrosensor). It measures 3.0 x 4.0 x 2.0mm.
The compact reflective PMS has a sensing distance of 3.0 to 4.0mm. Gabriele Fulco, product marketing manager for sensors at Omron, said, “With increasing pressure on system size, there is a definite market trend to move from leaded PMS solutions to SMD, but there is a real need for a miniature device with a mid-range . . sensing distance. Our new device achieves a comparatively long sensing distance within a compact form factor as a result of its built in lens.”
Despite its size, the EE-SY1201 reflective PMS offers a peak sensing distance of 3.0mm. Typical applications include paper pass detection in mini-printers, pin or cylinder rotation in e-locks, media pass detection in cutting machines and filament rotation in 3D printers. Other uses include factory automation equipment and industrial cameras. For applications requiring a shorter sensing distance of just 0.5mm, Omron offers the EE-SY1200.
