For applications that involve detecting or counting small objects passing through a narrow space, this Phidget is the perfect fit. When there is no object blocking the beam, the signal will drop low. When an object breaks the beam, the signal will jump up. You can adjust the sensitivity using the trim potentiometer depending on the type of object you're trying to sense or count. For more details, see the User Guide tab.
The PRX2300 connects directly to a VINT port using the VoltageInput or DigitalInput channel class. Have a look at the Connection & Compatibility tab for a list of compatible VINT Hubs, and check the User Guide tab for recommendations on which channel class to use for your application.
