Controller

How to identify newer and older controllers, and combinations with sensor heads

  • Air-driven type sensor heads and HG-S1050 must be used in combination with HG-SC□ controllers manufactured in or after February 2019.
  • If the HG‑SC□ controller is used together with the HG‑TC□ controller for thru-beam type digital displacement sensor HG-T series, make sure to use the HG-SC□ controller manufactured in or after February, 2019. Furthermore, connect the slaves units of the same series to the side closer to the master unit and the slave units of the other series to the far side.
  • When connecting only HG-S series controllers, both newer and older controllers can be connected.

Common

Wiring

The product is designed to fulfill the specifications when combined with the HG-S□ sensor head and HG-SC□ controller. If the product is used in combination with other products, it not only fails to meet the specifications but also generates a malfunction in some cases.
For the controller DC power supply, only use a power supply that is isolated by means of an isolation transformer or otherwise.
Risk of short-circuiting and damage to the controller or power supply if a transformer such as an auto transformer is used. Risk of short-circuiting and damage to the controller or power supply if incorrectly mounted or connected.

  • Make sure that the power supply is off while performing wiring or expansion work.
  • After you have completed wiring work, check the wiring carefully before switching on the power.
  • Do not run the wires together with high-voltage lines or power lines or put them in the same raceway. This can cause malfunction due to induction.
  • Verify that the supply voltage fluctuations are within the rating.
  • If power is supplied from a commercial switching regulator, ensure that the frame ground (F.G.) terminal of the power supply is connected to an actual ground.
  • Do not use during the initial transient time after the power supply is switched ON.
  • Make sure that stress by forcible bend or pulling is not applied directly to the sensor cable joint.
