Question

What is the difference between the Photomicro Sensors for Automation System and the Built-in Type Photomicro Sensors?

Answer

1. Photomicro Sensors for Automation System

Since the Photomicro Sensors for Automation System are developed mainly for building facilities and Factory Automation Systems(FA), they have the following features. However, since these features are not common to all models, be sure to check the specifications of each model individually.

(1) Wide operating voltage range(f.e.5VDC to 24VDC)

(2) The operation indicator light is built-in

(3) Output switching capacity has the direct connection with the Programmable Controllers and the Relay

2. Built-in Type Photomicro Sensors

Since the Built-in Type Photomicro Sensors are developed to be built into consumer products(f.e. Video camera, Laser disc player, Microwave oven) and office automation equipment(f.e. Printer, Facsimile, Copier, Floppy-disk drive), they have the following features. However, since these features are not common to all models, be sure to check the specifications of each model individually.

(1) Operable mainly on 5VDC or 12VDC.

(2) Not be directly connected to the Programmable Controllers and the Relay due to the switching capacity limited to operating electronic circuits. Amplifier circuits are required for the direct connection with the Programmable Controllers and the Relay.

(3) Smaller in size, lighter in weight and lower in cost compared to the Photomicro Sensors for Automation System.
