          Standard 1 output
          M8 connector*1



          Main unit/Expansion unit

          Expansion unit

          Control output

          PNP open collector 24 V; 1 output max: 100 mA or less; 2 output total: 100 mA or less (used stand-alone)/20 mA or less (multiple connections); residual voltage 1 V or less

          External input

          Input time 2 ms (ON)/20 ms (OFF) or more (25 ms or more (ON/OFF) when external calibration is selected.)

          Response time

          50 µs (HIGH SPEED) /250 µs (FINE) /500 µs (TURBO) /1 ms (SUPER) /4 ms (ULTRA) /16 ms (MEGA)

          Multiple connections to Expansion units

          Up to 16 units can be connected total (two output type is treated as two units)

          Light source

          Red, 4-element LED


          ON/OFF switchable (Factory setting: OFF)

          Number of interference prevention units

          0 for HIGH SPEED; 4 for FINE; 8 for TURBO/SUPER/ULTRA/MEGA
          (When set to double, the number of interference-prevention units will be doubled.)


          Power voltage

          12 to 24 VDC ±10 %, Ripple (P-P) 10 % or less

          Current Consumption

          Normal: 950 mW or less (39 mA max. at 24 V, 52 mA max. at 12 V)*2
          Eco on mode: 850 mW or less (35 mA max. at 24 V, 44 mA max. at 12 V)*2
          Eco Full mode: 520 mW or less (21 mA max. at 24 V, 26 mA max. at 12 V)

          Environmental resistance

          Ambient light

          Incandescent lamp: 20,000 lux or less, Sunlight: 30,000 lux or less

          Ambient temperature

          -20 to +55 °C (No freezing)*3

          Relative humidity

          35 to 85 % RH (No condensation)

          Vibration resistance

          10 to 55 Hz, Double amplitude 1.5 mm, 2 hours in each of the X, Y, and Z directions

          Shock resistance

          500 m/s2, 3 times in each of the X, Y, and Z directions

          Case material

          Both main unit and expansion unit housing material: Polycarbonate


          Approx. 22 g

          *1 Use a cable length of 30 m or less for M8 connector types.
          *2 Increases 100 mW (4.0 mA) for High Speed mode
          *3 One or two more units connected: -20 to +55 °C; 3 to 10 more units connected: -20 to +50 °C; 11 to 16 more units connected: -20 to +45 °C. When using 2-outputs, one unit is counted as two units. All temperature regulations are for when the unit is mounted on a DIN rail and installed on metal sheeting.
