Taking fiber sensors to the next level
CE : EMC Directive
UL : Approved Listing
* The FX-100 series has been changed to Panasonic brand from production in and after July 2011.
* Cover opened state is shown.
Compatible with commercially-available connectors, so that processing costs and lead time required for processing after purchase can be greatly reduced. The connection parts same as the DP-100 series digital pressure sensors and the PM-65 series micro photoelectric sensors can be commonly used.
Very slim body at only 9 mm 0.354 in. This is much thinner than existing fiber sensors. This makes a very large difference when using many units, even if the difference of one unit is small.
Utilizes "Four-chemical emitting element" for light emission. The light emission is guaranteed to be stable over long periods of time.
Continued to use the configuration system of digital pressure sensor DP-100 series, which has received high popularity since its release. We have separated the settings into three levels: RUN mode, SET mode, and PRO mode, making operation simpler and easier.
Simply imputing the default setting "code (number)" will enable sensor settings. Even if the settings are accidentally changed, imputing the code will restore the default settings.
Refer to "Quick setting function" and "Code setting function" in "PRECAUTIONS FOR PROPER USE" for details.
Teaching even without an object - Limit teaching function
Threshold value can be set by performing teaching only when an object is absent (when the incident light amount is stable). This is useful when there are other objects in the background also when defecting a minute objects. Teaching can also be carried out using external input.
Even when performing the same sensing operation, there may be variances in the digital values of the fiber amp. There is no problem with the sensor itself, but the operator may find it troubling.
Given value can be corrected with the GETA function, so the apparent variation can be eliminated and the creation of operation manuals can proceed smoothly.
This function seeks changes in the light emitting amount resulting from changes in the environment over long periods (such as dust levels), so that the incident light intensity can be checked at desired intervals and the threshold values can be reset automatically.
* Effective when the output operation is set to Dark-ON, and when using thru-beam type or retroreflective type fibers.
Emission amount can be reduced in order to achieve stable detection when the receiving light level is saturated, such as detection at close range and detection of transparent or minute objects. Previously, the emission amount level was only one, but from production in December 2007, four level setting (three level + auto setting) has become available. This function brings easier settings than before.
Mutual interference is prevented for max. 3 units for standard type FX-101□ and max. 4 units in case of long sensing range type FX-102□.
During setting of interference prevention, emitter and output indicator both flash, so it is convenient to confirm which fiber is in the setting process at a glance. Emitter flashes even when an amplifier is not installed close
* When the emission frequency is changed, a response time is also changed.
External input can be selected from emission halt, limit teaching / full-auto teaching / 2-level teaching, ECO or emission amount test. Threshold value set at each teaching is also memorized.
* 2-level teaching, emission amount test and threshold value storing setting are available in amplifiers manufactured after December 2007.
The viewing orientation of the digital display can be inverted in accordance with the setting direction of the amplifier.
When the amount light received approaches the threshold value, the display can be made to blink in order to alert the operator.
<When using at a shift amount of 20% and a threshold value of 1,000>
The amount of light received ranges from about 900 to 1,100 when the digital indicator flashes.
By connecting a fiber sensor to the master fiber sensor, the master sensor settings can be copied along with data communications. When the same settings are input to several units, trouble from setting errors can be prevented, also changes to the work order will be small when equipment design is changed.

Selectable either mounting on DIN rail or direct mounting with through hole.
Direct mounting brings stability even on a movable parts or installation of a single unit.
Standard type and long sensing range type are available which has various response time and sensing range.
The model best meet application needs can be selected.
|350 mm 13.780 in
|970 mm 38.189 in
|Max. 2.5 ms
When there is no key operations in approximately 20 seconds, digital display turns off and power consumption can be reduced to 600mW or less (720mW in normal mode).
