ENVIRONMENTAL RESISTANCE

Strong on dust and dirt [ CX-412/413 ]

Because the light source is an infrared light, it is strong on dust and dirt compared to the red beam type.

Stronger noise resistance

The CX-400 series has a higher noise resistance than its previons model. By incorporating an inverter countermeasure circuit that appropriately shifts with peak wavelength, the sensor now resists high-frequency noise from high-voltage inverter motors and inverter lights more effectively.

VARIETIES

Basic type available

Omit the sensitivity adjuster and operation mode switch and release a basic type cable 0.5 m 1.641 ft in length. If the usage is clear, quick construction can be performed onsite without detailed adjustments and the cost can be controlled.

Less processing time

M8 plug-in connector type and M12 pigtailed type are available. This contributes to less time spent in setting up. In addition, cable types are available with cable lengths of 0.5 m 1.640 ft, 2 m 6.562 ft and 5 m 16.404 ft.
This results in less wastage.

BGS/FGS functions make even the most challenging settings possible! [ CX-44□ ]

For details on the operation of the BGS/FGS functions, refer to “BGS/FGS functions” of “PRECAUTIONS FOR PROPER USE”.

The BGS function is best suited for the following case

Background not present

When object and background are separated

Not affected if the background color changes or someone passes behind the conveyor.

The FGS function is best suited for the following case

Background present

When object and background are close together When the object is glossy or uneven

Unaffected by gloss, color or uneven surfaces when sensing objects present on a conveyor belt.

The sensor judges that an object is present when light is received at position A of the light-receiving element (2-segment element). This is useful if the object and background are far apart. The distance adjustment method is the same as the conventional adjustment method for adjustable range reflective type sensors.
The sensor judges that an object is present when no light is received at position B of the light-receiving element (2- segment element). Accordingly, even objects that are glossy can be sensed. This is useful if the object and background are close together, or if the object being sensed is glossy.

Strong against interference

The interference prevention function lets two sensors to be mounted close together precisely.
