Features

Reduction of the data analysis burdenone small step towards IoT.

IO-Link compatible Collecting sensor level data

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.

Incorporated high-level self-diagnosis function
With the Panasonic's Self-Monitoring Sensor,you can get high-level solutions!

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. *Membership registration is required to access/download this data.

Easy use of IoT

Easy use of IoT

“Predictive maintenance” can be easily achieved through monitoring the state of the Self-Monitoring Sensor.

Emission power: 3 times the conventional ratio, Sensing range: 1.6 times max.!

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.

When the hysteresis is the same, the higher incident light intensity results in more stable detection.

When the hysteresis is the same, the higher incident light intensity results in more stable detection.

When the hysteresis is the same, the higher incident light intensity results in more stable detection.

Easy adjustment of beam axis

Thanks to the high emission power, a slight deviation of beam axis causes no problem. It is ideal for use in dusty areas* or for detection through an extremely small slit.
* Need to confirm proper operation in installed condition.

Easy adjustment of beam axis

Equipped with a mode to minimize the effect of ambient light

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.

Equipped with a mode to minimize the effect of ambient light

Simplified functions for improved operation ease

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 + Direct setting

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.
