- Simple set-up and confirmation with dual digital display
- Space saving design with a width of only 9mm
- Stable light intensity with 4 chemical LED design
The FX-100's ultra-slim design features a 9mm width and integrated mounting holes for installation in any application. The four chemical, visible red LED used for the emitter ensures long life operation and high-powered sensing. This sensor incorporates a dual digital display for simple setup, along with automatic push-button teaching and external input capabilities. Advanced functions including threshold tracking, timers, LED attenuation, and interference prevention allow the FX-100 to compete with fiber optic units that are twice its price. The connection options for the FX-100 series consist of an industry standard M8 quick disconnect along with an option that utilizes the same quick connect cable found in the Panasonic (formerly Sunx) DP-100 and PM series.
FX-11A Series - Slim Body Analog Fiber Optic Sensors
The FX-11A is an analog fiber optic sensor that is perfect for applications that require basic measurement of work pieces. The 1-5V output can be interfaced with various equipment such as the CA2 control unit for advanced calculations including height evaluation or level detection by differential sensing.
The slim size of the amplifier as well as the built-in interference prevention function allow for mounting multiple sensors in close proximity. Convenient indicators on the amplifier include an incident beam indicator, where the brightness fluctuates in proportion to the incident beam intensity, and a saturation indicator that illuminates when the output reaches 5V.
FX-300 Series - Digital Fiber Optic Sensors
- High performance fiber optic sensor with intuitive set-up and advanced functions
- Incorporates user friendly push button jog dial switch and large mode selection button
- Large easy to read display
- Optional communication modules for flexible interfacing and remote maintenance
The FX-300 series of digital fiber optic sensors offers a wide range of sensing possibilities in a compact, high-performance unit, that was also designed around ease of use. The incorporation of a user-friendly jog-dial simplifies operation and maintenance. Beginners and advanced users alike will benefit from the intuitive programming and operation, thus, keeping the learning curve to a minimum. The optical communication function makes it easy to copy settings to up to 16 sensors connected together. This saves the time of setting up each sensor individually. Restoring settings has never been easier than with the quick set-up code that is built into the FX-300 series. Once initial set-up is completed, write down the four digit code and in the event that sensor settings are reset, the user can quickly restore the sensor back to operation.
FX-311 Series - Advanced Manual Setting Fiber Optic Sensors
Manual adjust (12 turn pot) fiber amplifier provides highly sensitive tuning that is very simple and precise. The FX-311 series comes with an assist function for helping dialing in optimum sensitivity. Available in red, green and blue LED options. The FX-311 Series can be connected together using main and 1 wire sub cables for simple wiring back to the PLC.
FX-400 Series - High Power Digital Fiber Optic Sensors
- Multi-turn clutched potentiometer with digital display for easy set-up
- Improved emitted light stability with 4 chemical LED
- Multiple colored LED options for solving wide range of applications
The FX-400 series of high power digital fiber sensors is a simple, easy to use sensor that does not compromise functionality. Much work has been done to provide a sensor that beginners can operate out of the box that has some of the useful functions found in high-end units. The user interface of the sensor has been enhanced to provide a dual digital display and a large adjuster. The display shows the incident light intensity and the threshold value simultaneously, which improves configuration and maintenance procedures. Quick modifications of the threshold value have never been easier. It is also simple to make small changes because one digit on the display corresponds to a 30-degree turn of the sensitivity adjuster. The adjuster has no starting or end position, so it is impossible to cause any damage by overturning.
FX-500 Series - Long Range Fiber Optic Sensors
- Long sensing range - Up to 5.7x longer than previous models
- Ultra high speed response - Max. 25 µs response time
- Precision accuracy
- Sharp detection - Detects minute objects & fractional differences
The FX-500 is a highly advanced digital fiber sensor with high end features and a class leading stability and performance. An exclusive detection ASIC, designed specifically for the FX-500, is capable of processing ultra high-speed calculations while offering a long sensing range. Due to the impressive capabilities of this sensor, high precision detections can now be carried out where they were previously not possible. High Visibility Dual Digital Display- A highly visibility dual digital display allows for simultaneous viewing of the threshold and incident light values for quick and effective setup and usage. The display is large, bright, and has a wide viewing angle for easily reading values from a distance. Direct Threshold Setting / Direct Teaching- Teaching the amplifier is now done through the RUN mode of the amplifier, simplifying the setup process down to two presses of the 'set' button. The user can also directly change the threshold value using the '+' and '-' buttons.
FX-551 Series - Fiber Optic Sensors
The new Panasonic FX-551 digital fiber sensor series significantly improves stability and operation ease.
- 3X emission power improves stability and makes it ideal for dusty environments
- 1.6X longer sensing range than conventional models
- Improved ease of use for all models
- Ambient light intensity control setting helps reduce noise from other lighting in the area
- Quick disconnect cables enable reduced wiring
FX2 Series - Fiber Optic Sensors
The FX2 series of fiber optic sensors provides a non-modulated light source with high speed response of 15 microseconds. Because the detector is looking for a non-modulated pulse the the FX2 series can be used for ambient light detection. There is even a part number FX2-A3R-LED type that is designed for LED light detection.
