For swivel bracket and rod mounting, use E2D500.
Wiring and triggering
Image capture can be triggered with a binary device (like a photoelectric sensor) connected to the trigger input, a command from the process interface (EtherNet/IP or TCP/IP) or continuous capture with a fixed frame rate. The wiring schematic below shows triggering with a sensor.
For easy connection of trigger sensors and external light sources, ifm offers Y-splitters to provide power and internal connections to further simplify wiring. Please see EVC847 (for trigger sensors) and EVC848 (for external illumination).
Common trigger sensors
Triggers are used to confirm that the code is in place and initiate the image evaluation process. Any sensor can be used as a trigger so long as it physically fits in the application and provides repeatable indication of the code location. Below is our most common products. Triggering can also be done with a command from a PLC.
|Polarized retroreflective photoelectric sensor, 5 m range|
|Diffuse photoelectric sensor, 0.5 m range|
|Diffuse background suppression photoelectric sensor, 0.2 m range|
|Precision diffuse background suppression photoelectric sensor, 0.3 m range|
|Diffuse background suppression photoelectric sensor, 1.5 m range|
|Y-splitter for connection of trigger sensors|
While the integrated LED light source in the O2I code reader provides enough illumination for most applications, there are times when additional external light is required.
