Model PRDC2 Proximity Sensor

Brand: Red Lion Controls

The Model PRDC2 is a miniature, DC powered, proximity (Diffuse) photo-electric sensor with a 18" maximum detecting distance. 

This sensor requires no special reflectors or reflective tapes and the limited sensing range reduces detection of background reflections. 

It is ideally suited for detection of transparent or translucent objects, parts ejected from presses, and rotating targets such as pulley spokes. 

A modulated “infrared” LED light beam provides immunity to ambient light. 

In operation, the modulated light beam is reflected by the detected object. 

This reflected light beam is sensed by a photo-transistor, which in turn energizes the output. 

Actual sensing range is determined by the surface area and the amount of reflectivity of the object.
