FX-300 photoelectric sensor

  • FX-300 photoelectric sensor

FX-300 - born from technological innovation

Fibre sensors have again taken another step forward. The deterioration of light emitting elements over time, previously accepted as unavoidable, as well as the conventional idea that lenses could only be attached at the fibre end, have now finally been overcome by SUNX technology. A newly developed light eliminates deterioration, and by incorporating a lens within the fibre sensor itself, stable long-range sensing for long periods of time is now possible for the first time ever.

Characteristics:

  • Long-range sensing made possible with built-in optical lens
  • Optical communication function enables data to be copied and saved (up to 16 amplifiers)
  • 35µs response time (FX-301HS)
  • The amount of light emitted can be selected without needing to change the response time
  • 4-digit, 7-segment red LED display and LED indicators
  • Only two switches, the large jog switch and the large mode key, are required for operation
  • Supply voltage via only one cable for up to 16 amplifiers
  • Close mounting is possible for up to four fibre heads
  • Reduced intensity mode for transparent objects
  • Window comparator with two outputs (FX-305)
  • Copy-lock function
  • Optional: settings for up to 16 fibre sensors can be changed at once by means of external signals (FX-CH)
  • Optional: up to 16 I/O devices can be connected at once using MIL connectors (SC)
  • Optional: external communication via RS485 (SCGU1485)

Options:

  • Communication unit SCGU1485
  • Bank selection unit FX-CH2
  • PLC connection system SC
  • Main and sub cables (1/2/5m)
  • End plates
