Notes:

1) Where measurement conditions have not been specified precisely, the conditions used were an ambient temperature of +20 ℃ +68 ℉.
2) Excluding SF4D-□-01
3) The operating range is the possible setting distance between the emitter and the receiver.
4) When the floating blanking function is used, the size of the minimum sensing object varies. For the detail, refer to the section on Safety distance.
5) In consideration of the voltage drop caused by the cable, use Control output (OSSD 1, OSSD 2) source / sink current and cable length as a guideline.
6) The setting can be changed when the SF4D-TM1 (optional) and Configurator Safety Light Curtain setting software are used. Note that the setting cannot be changed when SF4D-□-01 is used.
7) For response times by number of beams, refer to the Control output (OSSD 1, OSSD 2) OFF response times.
8) Because the control output (OSSD 1, OSSD 2) must be OFF for at least 80 ms, the ON response will be delayed more than 50 ms when the light blocked time is less than 30 ms.
9) When optical synchronization is selected, if the beam axes of both the top end and bottom end are blocked, the ON response speed decreases by as much as 1 sec.
10) To use optional functions, the SF4D-TM1 (optional) and Configurator Safety Light Curtain setting software are required. Note that optional functions cannot be used when SF4D-□-01 is used.
11) Do not use or store in an environment pressurized to atmospheric pressure or higher at an altitude of 0 m.

Example of combination of series connection and parallel connection
Note: Refer to the manual on our website for details

When SF4D-□-01 is used, parallel connection or combination of series connection and parallel connection cannot be used.
In the case of parallel connection or combination of series connection and parallel connection, it is necessary to change settings by using the SF4D-TM1 communication module (optional) and Configurator Safety Light Curtain setting software.
