Field data collected and accumulated for “preventive maintenance” and “operation monitoring”.
An analysis of such field data requires high-level know-how and time, causing a burden to people responsible for the production site management.
The Self-Monitoring Sensor manufactured by Panasonic is capable of reporting sensor data and its own state to the host device through the I/O Link master.
With the Self-Monitoring Sensor, you can immediately judge the state of the sensor and easily identify the cause of failure. Thus, this sensor contributes to the reduction of the burden experienced by the client in collecting and analyzing data.
Problems are solved by the high-level self-diagnosis.
|Judgement of the state|
|Normal||Operation is normal.||*Recover to the normal state through checking installation and settings.
Reduction in the incident light intensity.
|Notification||Check the settings.
Detected state is faulty.
|Caution||Getting close to the end of service life.
Reached the state where the device should be replaced.
|*Limitation in the writing frequency into the memory or in the operation hours, etc.|
|Fault||Short-circuited or broken.
Reached the state where it is impossible to control as a device.
|*Short-circuited output, damaged EEPROM,etc.|
Software are available for download.

Easy use of IoT
“Predictive maintenance” can be easily achieved through monitoring the state of the Self-Monitoring Sensor.
Largely improved stability and ease of use due to higher emission power and broader utility!
This digital fiber sensor realizes longer sensing range than expected even with thin fibers.
|Fiber||Sensing range(STD mode)||Rate of increase in sensing range|
|FT-31||480mm 18.898 in||315mm
|FT-42||1,470mm 57.874 in||1,130mm
|FD-41||200mm 7.874 in||125mm
|FD-61||620mm 24.409 in||450mm
When the hysteresis is the same, the higher incident light intensity results in more stable detection.
When setting to activate the environment resistance mode in the emission frequency setting, the ambient illuminance for LED lights becomes about 2.5 times higher than that in the normal mode. This reduces erroneous detections caused by LED lights.
The FX-500 series and newer models are equipped with only basic functions for improved ease of use. No matter which model you select, they are all easy to use.
MODE NAVI uses three indicators and a dual display to show the amplifier’s basic operations. The current operation mode can be confirmed at a glance, so even a first-time user can easily operate the amplifier.
