5 m 16.404 ft cable length type, bending-resistant cable type

5 m 16.404 ft cable length type (standard: 1 m 3.281 ft) and bending-resistant cable (excluding 5 m 16.404 ft cable length type) are available.
However, long sensing range type is not available. When ordering 5 m 16.404 ft cable length type, suffix "-C5" to the model No. When ordering bending-resistant cable type, suffix "-R" to the model No.
(e.g.) 5 m 16.404 ft cable length type of GX-F15AI-P is "GX-F15AI-P-C5". Bending-resistant cable type of GX-F15AI-P is "GX-F15AI-P-R".
