Automated Design's iBeam Sensors continue to offer precise and reliable in screen sensors at a competitive price. By eliminating all the pitfalls of other screen sensors, such as susceptibility to ambient lighting and power fluctuations, the iBeam sensors are already a superior investment.

The iBeam sensors are highly configurable, allowing them to be quickly inserted into any sensor system. DIP switches have been replaced by an RS422 connection, allowing for enhanced configuration using the free iBeamWorx utility, as well as detailed diagnostic and environmental information.

The sensors are compatible with almost any data acquisition system. Anything that can accept a discrete signal of 5, 15 or 24vdc will work. Use them with:

  • ADC Velocigraph
  • Lab View
  • PLC
  • Remote I/O
  • Single Board Computer
