New photo microsensor extends transmissive photo IC portfolio

28-04-2023 | Omron | Semiconductors

Omron Electronic Components Europe has expanded its SMD photo IC portfolio by introducing an ultra-compact 3mm slot variant. The EE-SX4330 photo microsensor provides stable PCB mounting with an optimised 3mm terminal design.

The new device supplies compact transmissive sensing with a photo IC digital output in a tape reel or tape-out packaging. The new 3mm PMS enables miniaturisation for various functions and applications by supplying detection for position and rotation. The side pad's flat terminal design provides a compact 5mm x 6mm x 4mm size and assures surface-mount stability to optimise reflow soldering,

The new device further optimises customers' PCB mounting and the soldering process by extending the company's Photo IC type (Digital output) portfolio. A wide range of applications profiting from this miniaturisation stretches from chip mounting equipment, factory automation and cutting machines to analysers and plotters.

One noteworthy success is the application of photosensors for biochemical analyser application. Here, the sensor offers encoder detection to control disk rotation and arm operation accurately and dependably inside the analyser.
