HOA698X/HOA699X Series IR Transmissive Optoschmitt Sensor

Manufacturer's part number :


Manufacturer Honeywell

Honeywell - Sensors

Description :

The HOA698X/699X series consists of an infrared emitting diode facing an Optoschmitt detector encased in a black thermoplastic housing. Detector switching takes place whenever an opaque object passes through the slot between emitter and detector. The photodetector consists of a photodiode, amplifier, voltage regulator, Schmitt trigger and various output configurations. The user can choose from available options:(1) detector aperture, (2) mounting tab configuration, (3) detector output configuration, and (4) housing material.

The HOA698X series utilizes an IR transmissive polysulfone housing which features smooth optical faces without external aperture openings; this feature is desirable when aperture blockage from airborne contaminants is a possibility. The HOA699X series employs an opaque polysulfone housing with aperture openings for use in applications in which maximum rejection of ambient light is important, and situations in which maximum position resolution is desired. The HOA698X/699X series employs plastic molded components.

Housing material is polysulfone. Housings are soluble in chlorinated hydrocarbons and ketones. Recommended cleaning agents are methanol and isopropanol.

Device Polarity: Buffer - Output is LO when optical path is blocked.

Inverter - Output is HI when optical path is blocked.

Wire color code and functions are: Red - IRED Anode Black - IRED Cathode Green - Detector Ground White - Detector Vcc Blue - Detector Output
