The ADVICEFiber Optic Xcvr (FOX-1) is a photoelectric fiber optic transceiver. It is designed to transmit and receive 660nm (visible) light using standard plastic fiberoptic cable. The FOX transmits light on one fiber, which reflects off a target, and then returns on a second plastic fiberoptic cable. The FOX has a sensitive receiver that converts strong/weak reflected light amplitude into high/low voltage pulses on its electrical interface. Unlike similar sensors, the FOX does not require any calibration for correct operation. The FOX is designed to work in low-light and low-contrast applications where optical pulse rates are between 1Hz and 100kHz.
The FOX-1 is designed to work in any counting application where it is desireable to avoid contact with the object being counted.
