2017-02-01 Reflective optical sensor provides robust reliability and versatility along with market leading ambient light immunity

TT Electronics introduced its Photologic® V OPB9000 reflective optical sensor
for industrial and medical applications. The sensor provides dependable edge
and presence detection of reflective media under a wide range of ambient light
conditions.

The OPB9000, under the OPTEK brand, is suitable for a variety of applications
including: industrial printing, dispensing, manufacturing automation, safety
and security devices, portable lab/medical equipment.

The OPB9000 is a reflective, CMOS logic output sensor with programmable
sensitivity, output polarity, and drain select.  Unparalleled 25+ kilolux ambient
light immunity along with a wide operating temperature range sets the
OPB9000 apart from the competition.  The self-calibration feature avoids the
need  for constant recalibration as the LED ages, saving valuable time and
effort. Temperature compensation and automatic gain control features enable
it to reliably function in the most demanding and dynamic environmental
conditions where consistent performance from sensor devices is critical. 
The industry leading response time of 6µs ensures high-speed detection for
time-critical applications.

Designs using standard analogue circuits can be extremely complex, with
additional external components which add space and cost. The OPB9000 is
designed to eliminate circuit complexity and reduces board space
requirements by up to 80% with its fully integrated analogue front end and
digital interface. It combines an infrared emitter and integrated logic sensor
in a miniature 4.0 mm x 2.2 mm x 1.5 mm surface-mount package.
