Notes:

1) Measuring conditions are as follows unless otherwise specified: connection with controller, supply voltage: 24 V DC, ambient temperature: +20℃ +68 ℉, sampling cycle: 40 μs, average number of samples: 256 times, measurement center distance, measurement object: white ceramic [aluminumvapor deposition surface reflection mirror for HL-C201A(E) / HL-C201A(E)-SP2 / HL-C201F(E), clear glass for HL-C201A(E)-SP3], and digital measurement value.
2) Use the external ND filter (optional) HL-C2F01 in case the amount of reflected beam is too large on Specular Reflection installation. (Cannot be used with HL-C201□.)
3) Measuring range at sampling periods of 20 μs and 10 μs is as follows.

4) The P-P value for the deviation in the digital measurement values at the measurement center distance has been converted for the measurement center distance.
5) Exports of models with a minimum resolution of under 0.25 μm 0.010 mil fall under Japanese Export Control defined by “Foreign Exchange and Foreign Trade Act.” These products are introduced to limited countries only. Please refer to “PRECAUTIONS FOR PROPER USE”.
6) Indicates error with respect to the ideal linear values for digital displacement output when standard objects were measured by our company. It may vary depending on the types of objects being measured.
7) FDA regulatory compliance is attained following the stipulations of Laser Notice No. 50 (June 24, 2007) of FDA regulations (21 CFR 1040.10 and 1040.11).
8) This beam diameter is the size at the measurement center distance. These values were defined by using 1/e2 (13.5 % approx.) of the center light intensity. If there is a slight leakage of light outside the normal spot diameter and if the periphery surrounding the sensing point has a higher reflectivity than the sensing point itself, then the results may be affected.
9) Variance is ±0.03 % F.S. or less (±0.08 % F.S. or less for HL-C235CE-W) depending on the ambient illuminance.
