TT Electronics’ New Non-Contact Reflective Object Sensor for Industrial Automation Applications

TT Electronics announced its new OPB735 series Reflective Object Sensors for challenging industrial automation and safety applications.

This reflective sensor features hermetically sealed components offering designers a wide operating temperature range of -55°C to 100°C to suit most factory settings. Designed to produce low cross talk or noise signal, this product provides users with ideal performance. The OPB735X series has 4 leads. The OPB735XWZ series has interconnect wires at 12” (300 mm) length UL 1569 approved #28 AWG, stripped, and tinned.

Designers can choose between phototransistor or photodarlington output to meet specific needs or parameters; in either option, the detector responds to radiation from the IRED only when a reflective object passes within its field of view. The OPB735 is encased side-by-side on converging optical axes in a low-cost, black thermoplastic housing. The OPB735XWZ variation includes UL 1569 approved #28 AWG lead wires. Custom electrical, wire cabling, and connectors options are also available.
