Fiber Optic Amps Have Quick Eye For Small Targets

Touted as the next generation of fiber optic amplifiers, these fiber-optic amplifiers are said to be useful in any photoelectric sensing application requiring high-speed, small-target capabilities, even in harsh environments. The FVDK 10 single-channel amplifier offers a broad mix of performance options, while the FVDK 31 modular series is suited for applications using several amplifiers. Both types of fiber optic amplifiers have standard self-diagnostic functions, light-dark selection switches, and release delay selection switches with two LEDs for stability and light reception indication. The FVDK 10 family of single-channel amplifiers has both trimpot-adjustable and push-button, teach-in style units. Both models have extended sensing ranges, high-speed detection, and a response time of 50 ms. The FVDK 31 modular fiber optic sensor has an expandable housing design where individual fiber optic sensors share communication via an internal bus. Up to 16 sensor units communicate with the master sensor. The sensors are heat resistant up to 350ûC. BAUMER ELECTRIC, Southington, CT. (800) 937-9336.
