The next-generation new form series
A new alternative to fiber sensors
UL : Recognition(Excluding EX-33(-PN) and 5 m cable length type)
All you need to do is to make a ø4 mm ø0.157 in hole where you would like to stop or check the object (ø6 mm ø0.236 in hole for reflective type).
The EX-30 series solves all of the difficulties associated with fiber sensors, such as:
- Difficulty finding a suitable place for the amplifier
- Fragility of the fiber
- Extra space needed because of difficulty in bending the fiber
- The nuisance of having to use a protective tube to prevent fiber breakage
The EX-30 series achieves reductions in power consumption of up to 65 %. These sensors contribute to environmental friendliness.
The EX-30 series achieves long distance sensing.
The same high response speed of 0.5 ms as fiber sensor amplifiers is provided, making these sensors ideal for sensing small objects, counting objects that are moving quickly and positioning items such as circuit boards.
It conforms to the EMC Directive and obtains the UL Recognition. (excluding 5 m <span class="inch">16.405 ft</span> cable length type) Moreover, PNP output type which is much in demand in Europe, is also available.
The EX-30 series can be screwmounted (M4 for thrubeam type, M6 for reflective type) in the same way as standard fiber sensors. This means that they can be inserted into production lines in exactly the same way as conventional high-priced fiber sensors.
Conventional photoelectric sensors required four (for thru-beam type) or two (for reflective type) mounting holes and screws to be used. However, the EX-30 series is installed with a single screw, thus cutting down on installation work by half.
Unlike conventional fibers, bending radius is not a problem, so that the sensor can be securely installed alongside conveyors.
The EX-30 series become significantly stronger against inverter light and other extraneous light.
*Effective from production in April 2011.
The EX-30 series has high bending strength, so that the protective tube used to protect conventional fiber from breakage is not needed. This also adds up to excellent cost performance.
The sensors features an IP67 rating to allow their use in process lines where water is used or splashed.
A bright 2-color indicator is incorporated in all types.
The sensor incorporates a sensitivity adjuster. It is convenient when you need fine adjustment.
