IMX-N23 Infrared Photoelectric Multiplexer

Manufacturer: Pantron Instruments, GmbH
Category: Infrared Photoelectric Multiplexers

2-channel multiplex amplifier with manual gain setting. The PANTRON multiplex process guarantees a strict channel separation, even if the two light barriers are mounted very closely. Two level settings allow the multiplexer to be adjusted to overcome distance and other conditions. Selectable multiplex speed offers an increase of range and penetration at slow speed or respectively a shorter range at faster speed.
