Analog Output Fiber Optic Sensors

Bulletin 42FB Analog Output Fiber Optic Sensors provide a 1...8V DC voltage output that is proportional to the amount of transmitted or reflected light detected. The user interface offers a red output status indicator that shows a proportional indication level as to how much light is received. The brighter this status indicator, the more light is being detected by the fiber optic receiver.
