The EE-SX1350 is that it is offered with a choice of photo-transistor outputs. In the near future, Omron is to release a 5mm slot width PMS with photo-IC outputs, known as the EE-SX3350. In photo-IC form, the device gives a sharply defined and stable ON / OFF output, and excellent accuracy and repeatability. The output is also much less affected by noise especially on the input channel. It gives the highest output current, so that it can be directly interfaced with relays and PLCs. It also gives fast operation, with switching speeds of micro-seconds. The photo-transistor version is lower cost.
Omron now offers a range of 40 transmissive PMS devices, with connector, terminal and wire terminations as well as the SMD styles.
