Light Measurement Sensor evaluates RGB composition.
Able to measure relative color characteristics of various types of light sources and illuminated objects, LEX-1000 analyzes light for its constituent RGB (red, green, blue) values. Discrete signal indicating color match is issued if readings of all- 3 colors fall within preprogrammed parameters. Along with 4- programmable color recognition channels, sensor offers RGB analog outputs, serial...Read More »
Light Barriers operate without separate reflector.
With- SmartReflect Light Barriers, light beam is set up between sensor and machine part and when object interrupts beam, sensor is triggered. There must be background in sensing distance of sensor for operation. In this way, separate reflector becomes superfluous and common weak point is rectified. Special SmartReflect variants can use same principle to detect transparent objects such as...Read More »
Rain Sensor automates window and vent closing.
Based on same principle used in automotive windshield wiper control systems, RG-11 Optical Rain Gauge is sensitive to even tiny amounts of rain,- and stops sensing when rain stops, without having to wait for water to evaporate. Device may be set as On/Off indicator or used to emulate tipping bucket where qualitative measurement of rainfall rate is desired. Immune to external contaminants, sensor...Read More »
