The slim, 10mm wide amplifier unit processes color detection through an RGB light-receiving element. The use of a single, white LED and one-package light-receiving element unifies the amplifier in both size and operation, thus lowering cost compared to conventional three-LED amplifiers. One-touch teaching simplifies set-up in registering colors, and smart functions optimize positioning of target objects for detection. All models feature a timer function with variable ON or OFF delay up to 5s. The E3X-DAC also provides remote teaching input function and a function lock that prevents sensor tampering. The E3X-DAC sensor is priced at $220.
