Unformatted text preview: al power on the receiver input PR divided by the just detectable optical signal power at the switching threshold PT: β= PR PT If the received optical emission is at the switching threshold level, this means β = 1, i.e. there is no operating margin. If the factor is for instance β = 1.5, then an operating margin of 50 % is available. 74 © Festo Didactic GmbH & Co. KG • FP 1110 6. Optical proximity sensors Factor β on the one hand depends on the distance between the emitter and the receiver in the case of the through-beam sensor, between the emitter and reflector in the case of retro-reflective sensors or between the proximity sensor and object in the case of a diffuse sensor. On the other hand, the pattern of the operating margin factor is dependent on distance s with regard to the individual proximity sensor.
