Building Blocks of an Intelligent Network with Photodiode Sensors
On the Path to Industry 4.0Olching, )
The photodiode sensors have a panchromatic detector with a sensitivity range of 450 nm to 2000 nm and a reduced temperature dependence.
They work reliably in (core) systems and are able to read out evidential data - e.g. data can be tagged with a time stamp. Furthermore they have a calibration option, a digital and analog output, an internal storage capacity, and are integrated in a housing with an external M12 thread. Powerful electronics have been embedded into the MAJOR-A. It offers an arithmetical averaging between measurement values, an offset correction, and the option "measure on demand". Additional features are the automatic amplification adjustment and the programmable amplification.
The built-in photodiode is also made by LASER COMPONENTS. At wavelengths below 2100 nm, the temperature coefficient of the IG22X1000S4i is less than 0.01%/K (see figure). Thus, a temperature change of 50 K results in a deviation of only 0.5%. Inside the MAJOR it is possible to improve this value again via software.
