Useful Functions for Various Applications
You can set the sensitivity with just the touch of a button. When light intensity values fluctuate due to dust or misalignment, you can adjust the sensitivity by a fixed percentage. (+/-99%)
Adjust the current received light intensity to "0". For example. you can zero the received light intensity from a reflective sensor so that the background will display "0". This function is effective when there are only small differences between targets received light intensity.
You can adjust the light intensity on the display. In this way, each amplifier can display the same value for the same target. (1 output type only)
When the external input is activated, LED transmission will stop on
the Main unit and all connected Sub units.
[Example of use]
•Troubleshooting at sensor startup
•Preventing interference with other sensors
Sensitivity can also be externally set by a PLC.
The external input works the same as the SET button.
With the Password Lock function, only authorised operators can modify the settings on the FS-V30. Since the Password Levels are selectable, operation errors can be prevented.
Depending on the mounting direction, some displays may be inverted. The digital display on the FS-V30 can be inverted, providing easy to read displays.
The lowest power consumption in its class thanks to the MEGA FALCON
The display can be turned off to reduce power consumption
The selectable S-APC function maintains a constant light level over time. The 4-element LED prevents diode deterioration over an extended period of time. Together, these functions make the FS-V30 series the easy choice for long-term, maintenance-free operation.
This mode ignores slight variations of light intensity by dirt or temperature, and detects only the targets. It can detect slight differences of light intensity without readjustment of the sensitivity.
In situations where fibre units have to be mounted in close proximity to a highly reflective background, the amplifier may saturate. The selectable attenuation function adjusts transmission intensity, allowing the FS-V30 Series to be used in close proximity (enabled) or from long distance (disabled)
Set an upper and lower detection level. The FS-V30 will output when the received signal is between the setting limits.
When detecting falling or minute targets, it is very difficult to make sensitivity adjustments to manual fibre-optic sensors. Fully automatic calibration is unique to digital sensors. A suitable sensitivity is set by pressing the SET button while the target passes through the sensiting area.
The sensitivity of the FS-V30 can be set to the maximum level to ignore background surfaces. This feature also makes it possible to detect targets while suppressing the influence of dust.
