Made for assembly line, machine automation, and other applications, this RoHS-compliant wide gap optical sensor includes an emitter-sensor pair. Its LED and phototransistor are made to work over up to 12 inches in industrial environments. The sensor components are mounted in threaded color-coded housings. The emitter-sensor pair uses an LED with a 935 mm peak wavelength and a silicon phototransistor. The pair will mate with a Molex 03-06-2023 connector with either male (for the LED) or female (for the sensor) pins. The output phototransistor performs at collector-emitter voltages of 30V, emitter-collector voltage of 5V, and power dissipation of 100 mW. The LED has a maximum continuous forward dc current of 40 mA, a reverse voltage of 2V, and power dissipation of 100 mW.
Machine vision and video streaming systems are used for a variety of purposes, and each has applications for which it is best suited. This denotes that there are differences between them, and these differences can be categorized as the type of lenses used, the resolution of imaging elements, and the underlying software used to interpret the data.
Comic books long have appealed to kids as a fun way to introduce reading and art without being overly didactic. Now a software engineer and project manager from Oklahoma thinks the medium can be used to get them interested in STEM careers.
