Optical Touch Switch SW-100

Cautions For Use

  • Never use this product in a device for personnel protection.
  • In case of using devices for personnel protection, use products which meet laws and standards, such as OSHA, ANSI or IEC etc., for personnel protection applicable in each region or country.
  • Do not use this product as a device for emergency stop.
  • This product is used to start up the machinery. Securing safety for the startup of machinery should be performed separately.
  • When using the products for two-hand control, comply with the following contents.
  • Select a model of a control device for two-hand control, based on results of risk assessment.
  • Make sure to use a controller for two-hand control which complies with ISO 13851 (EN 574, JIS B 9712)
  • For another requirements such as mounting of this product, or prevention of accidental actuation and of defeat etc., comply with ISO 13851 (EN 574, JIS B 9712) and ANSI B11.1, B11.9. Furthermore, comply with the regulations established by national or regional security committees (Occupational Safety and Health Administration: OSHA, the European Standardization Committee, etc.)

Mounting

  • Fasten a mounting nut (accessory) from the reverse side of the mounting plate.(Note 1)
    The tightening torque should be 2 to 3 N·m.

Mounting

Notes:

1) A mounting tool (SW-MT1) for fastening the mounting nut is available separately. The shape of fastening part of SW-MT1 is M10 nut.
2) Make sure to use the attached mounting packing, or waterproof property will be invalid.

Time-out function

  • Unintended beam interrupted status caused by dirt on the sensing surface, etc. can be monitored.
    When beam interrupted status (sensing status) continues for 10 sec. or more, output 1 turns ON and output 2 and 3 turn OFF (output status is the same as non-sensing status.)
    This function can be invalid by short-circuiting “between switching terminals of time-out function (terminal No. 7 and No. 8)” as described below.
Note: When time-out function is operated, the fault indicator (yellow) lights up. In this case, once beam is received, the fault indicator lights off and the sensor returns to normal operation.

Time-out function

Others

  • This device has been developed / produced for industrial use only.
  • When the power of the thru-beam type photoelectric sensor inside the main body turns on in beam interrupted status, output 1 turns ON and output 2 and 3 turn OFF, then the fault indicator (yellow) lights up. In this case, once beam is received, the fault indicator lights off and the sensor returns to normal operation.
  • Use a power supply unit conforming to the EMC Directive and the Low Voltage Directive. (Only for use in Europe)
  • Use a power supply unit conforming to Class 2. (Only for use in the North America)
  • Use a power supply unit with an output holding time of 20 ms or more.
  • Do not use during the initial transient time (300 ms approx.) after the power supply is switched on.
