2. Equipped with the advanced ELCA function to prevent influences from extraneous light and mutual interference.

Avoiding influences from sporadic extraneous light from surrounding machines and preventing malfunction due to extraneous light such as light from other sensors passing close, spatter, AGV and patrol lights.

(Problems of conventional products)

There is a possibility that a sensor cannot detect objects entering if a receiver receives other light for a long time around at the time it confirms incident light. Because of this, light curtain used to regard it as extraneous light and turn off output when light enters into light curtain at the closest time of incident light. However, it turns off against any kind of extraneous light regardless of dangerous light (that affects detection of object invasion) or non-dangerous light. This causes frequent machine stops due to extraneous light.

(With SF4 series…)

2. Equipped with the advanced ELCA function to prevent influences from extraneous light and mutual interference.

Reduces malfunctions due to extraneous light with retry processing and scanning timing special processing.

Retry processing

It controls malfunction due to extraneous light to a minimum by not turning off output right away even when detecting sporadic extraneous light such as sensors equipped with AGV for preventing crushes and patrol lights and checking if it is dangerous or not within response time repeatedly (retry processing).

Less machine stops

Scanning timing special processing

This light curtain can avoid mutual interference by staggering the time of receiving light automatically in case that it receives light from light curtain next to it (extraneous light whose waveform and cycles are similar.)

2. New method! Extraneous light prevention function

  • The emitting method of light curtain

  • The emitter emits light from the beam channel 1, and the receiver 1 confirms incident light. Then, the beam channel 2 emits light. Thus, this is a method that they turn on the light in turns.

  • With conventional extraneous light check...

  • If other light enters for a long time at the same

  • time of the receiver receiving light, it regards

  • the other light as abnormal extraneous light.

  • Then, it turns off.

However, it turns off by any kind of incident light. It causes frequent machine

stops.

* Conventional sensors turn off here.

Before the beam channel 3 emits light...

It checks extraneous light of 2 again within response time.

1. No extraneous light

2. New method! Extraneous light prevention function

Sensor A

Sensor B

If the sensor A and B emit light around at the same time, and light of the sensor A enters into the sensor B, it causes mutual interference.

* Conventional sensors turn off here.

With scanning timing special processing function,

The time of the sensor A’s emitting light and the sensor B’s receiving light can be staggered, which can avoid mutual interference.

* This is possible only with software without synchronization of the sensor A and B!

Fewer man-hours only with fine adjustment after turning on the power

Alignment of topmost beam channel

You can adjust beam axis without turning on the power of equipment/machines in case that a set distance is long. After tuning on the power, only fine adjustment is needed, which can shorten man-hours.

Vertical sliding possible.

4. Reduction in total cost with series connections

Series connections are possible to a maximum of three sensors (192 beam channels), which reduces man-hours for wiring. In addition, we achieved a great reduction in cost because only one unit of safety relay unit is needed for a couple of sensors.

(Without series connections…)

5. Fast response time. Simple calculation of safety distance.

11ms at all the beam channels, from 8 to 96 (for series connections: 20ms)!

(In using each unit separately)

(Series connections)

MAX 1950mm

All models 11ms

All combinations 20ms

MIN 190mm

Simplified calculation of safety distance

We achieved a high speed response time of 11ms regardless of numbers of beam channels. It simplifies calculation of safety distance. In addition, miniaturization of equipment is possible because it can shorten the distance between a dangerous part and light curtain by high speed response time.

6. Fixed blanking function

It is possible to install even if there is an obstacle within sensing ranges!

Possible to install even if there is a fixed obstacle within sensing ranges.

* It is convenient when there are workbenches or conveyors between light curtains!

* The control output (OSSD) does not turn off when programmed beam channels have light interrupted.

* In case that an obstacle is gone, the control output (OSSD) turns off.

(How to set up)

Automatic: Setting up beam channels that have light interrupted now to effective channels of the blanking function automatically.

Manual: Setting up effective/non-effective of the blanking function for each beam channel.

* It is convenient when you enter materials between light curtains or when machines move at changeovers.

* The control output (OSSD) does not turn off unless light does not interrupt programmed numbers of beam channels (possible to program from 1 to 3 beam channels.)

* You can select if the blanking function of beam channels at top and bottom should be set as valid or invalid.

* You can select if the OSSD should be ON or OFF within programmed numbers of beam channels in discontinuous light interruption.

Fluttering

You need to keep a safety distance with a minimum sensing object.

Examples of applications

1. There is one spot that objects pass through, and it turns off when something enters (human bodies, hands, etc.) from other spots.

1. Because of a shape of obstacles, they interrupt light of beam channels non-consecutively.

Use with a setup of invalid.

2. In case of entering objects from two spots, etc

Use with a setup of valid.

3. Relay unit SF-AC (to be released soon)

Long life expectancy! Mechanical life of relay contact: 10,000,000 times! Mechanical life of relay contact is long; thus you can use it over a long time.

Less man-hours with a removal terminal board! You can wire with the terminal board off; thus less man-hours is possible since you do not need to remove controllers from the control board for maintenance.

Auxiliary output (non-safety output) is available! It can be connected to the PLC. You can operate it only with the current of 5mA.

No maintenance! It has adopted hybrid fuse. There is no need to exchange fuses. The fuse can be recovered after turning off the power once and turning on it again.

You can input all the cables of light curtain! Less man-hours! There is no need for external cables since you can input all the cables of light curtain into relay unit, which leads to less man-hours.

Equipped with auxiliary output with 2 channels It is equipped with auxiliary output for OSSD of light curtain and 2 channels of output for auxiliary output.

You can connect light curtain of PNP output!
