ZapFREE® Fiber Optic U-BEAM Sensor
The MR382 series Fiber Optic U-Beam Sensor is an innovative photo interruption/slot sensor solution that can be deployed in challenging environments, including mines, oil & gas, refining, medical, electromagetic and high voltage. The U-Beam sensor is a turn-key optical solution for implementing a gear tooth speed sensor, an edge detector or proximity sensor. The optical sensor system operates over a duplex multimode 62.5/125μm optical link up to 1250 meters.
The MR382 Controller provides both +5V and +24V line driver outputs as well as a frequency to voltage analog output. For Functional Safety applications, the digital ouptuts implement a known default failure state.
