Notes:

1) The operating range is the possible setting distance between the emitter and the receiver.

Operating range
2) When using as a safety device for a press machine in China or when using SF4D-□-01 as a safety device for a press machine or paper shearing machine in Japan, the length from the center of the first beam channel to the center of the last beam channel become to be protective height.
