Features

A new type of laser sensors that makes maintenance and preventive maintenance easy!

■Direct connection with communication unit for CC-Link SC-GU2-C

CC-Link communication is possible through the connection to SC-GU2-C. By having the configurations saved as "Configuration file" before equipment shipment, later on when it comes to exchanging the sensors, the configurations can be simply written in through CC-Link. When connecting with digital fiber sensors FX-301/305 or digital pressure sensors DPS-401/402, batch data communication can be carried out.

communication unit for CC-Link SC-GU2-C

Used as a CC-Link remote device terminal

■Threshold tracking function saves maintenance time

This function seeks changes in the light emitting amount resulting from changes in the environment over long periods (such as dust levels), so that the incident light intensity can be checked at desired intervals and the threshold values can be reset automatically. This helps to reduce the manhours for maintenance.

Threshold tracking function saves maintenance time

We offer 6 types of laser sensor heads for various applications

Industry standard mounting pitch

The mounting pitch for sensor heads is 25.4 mm1.000 in, the same industry standard as the CX-400 series general purpose photoelectric sensors. Hence, existing mounting brackets can be used even when replacing general purpose sensors with laser sensors.

Industry standard mounting pitch

Easy and accurate adjustments

[Long sensing range spot reflective type] [Long sensing range line reflective type]

A spot-size adjuster is built into the back of the sensor head allowing the user to adjust the sensor easily while viewing the spot. The adjuster is adjustable with a screwdriver to avoid accidents during maintenance or any other time the sensors are handled.

Easy and accurate adjustments

Line-up of FDA / IEC / JIS Class 1 type [LS-H91(F)-A, LS-H21(F)-A]

Visible light spot using the Class 1 type. This makes beam axis alignment much easier.

Line-up of FDA / IEC / JIS Class 1 type [LS-H91(F)-A, LS-H21(F)-A]

Sensor mounting bracket for beam axis alignment is available [MS-CX-11]

It is possible to make a minor adjustment for the bracket by 4 degrees up, down, right or left, even after setting up the sensor. The bracket can be mounted in both longitudinal and lateral directions.

Sensor mounting bracket for beam axis alignment is available MS-CX-11

Easy setting, dual display

Equipped with 2 large 4-digit digital displays. While checking the current incident light intensity (red display), the optimal threshold value (green display) can be set easily.

Easy setting, dual display

2 switches enable simple operation

Only two switches, the large MODE key and the large jog switch, are required for operation.

2 switches enable simple operation

Wiring and space saving

The quick-connection cables enable reductions in wiring.
(connector type)
The connections and man-hours for the relay terminal setup can be reduced and valuable space is saved.
Also, LS-400 series sensors can be connected side-byside, up to 16 units, with a connector type of FX-500 seriesFX-300 series digital fiber sensors and DPS-400 series digital pressure sensors.

 
Note : Because the transmission method varies depending on the amplifiers, check the instruction manual for the amplifiers when connecting them.

Wiring and space saving

Accurately sense the minutest variations (M.G.S. function)

When sensing at close range or when the target objects are transparent or minute, adjust the sensor receiving sensitivity to one of 3 levels (U-LG mode: 4 levels) for the optimal setting. In addition, changing the receiving sensitivity will not effect the response time.

Accurately sense the minutest variations (M.G.S. function)

4 new modes enabling wide array of sensing

[Hysteresis mode]
By adjusting the hysteresis, convexo-concave parts of uneven objects can be cancelled enabling more stable sensing.

4 new modes enabling wide array of sensing

[Window comparator mode]
The sensor judges any object outside the range of incident light intensity established by two set threshold values.

4 new modes enabling wide array of sensing

[2 independent output modes]
By combining two outputs, a wide array of control is possible, allowing you to detect meandering objects, for example.

4 new modes enabling wide array of sensing

[Differential sensing mode] Only rapid changes in light received are detected, which enable the edge of glass, etc. to be detected accurately. Optimal for positioning.

4 new modes enabling wide array of sensing

MODE NAVI customized function

Frequently used functions such as response time, M.G.S. function, data bank load, emission halt function and D-CODE values can be stored in CUSTOM mode. The settings can also be changed easily.

MODE NAVI customized function

Emission halt function

Using the emission halt function, the laser beam can be stopped via external input, e.g. when a spot appears within the visual range of an image processor.

Emission halt function

Cable type allows external input

The LS-401-C2 cable-type amplifier is equipped with an external input wire (5-core). It is ideal to use the laser sensor at places where external teaching or laser light emission halting is to be carried out, or at places where the laser sensor is to be used separately.

Cable type allows external input

Interference prevention function

The automatic interference prevention function prevents against interference among up to 4 sensors.

NOTE Mounting bracket is not supplied with the sensor head. Please select from the range of optional sensor head mounting brackets.
Note 1 : This product complies with 21 CFR 1040.10 Laser Notice No. 50, dated July 26, 2001, issued by CDRH (Center for Devices and Radiological Health) under the FDA (Food and Drug Administration). For details, refer to the Laser Notice No. 50.
Note 2 : The sensing range is the value for the RF-330 [RF-230 for the LS-H92(F)] reflector. In addition, the sensing range is the possible setting range for the reflector. The sensor can detect an object less than 0.1 m 0.328 ft [LS-H92(F): 0.2 m 0.656 ft] away. Note that if there are white papers or specular objects near the sensor head, reflected light from these objects may be received. In such cases, use the M.G.S. function of the amplifier unit to change the response time or incident light sensitivity.
Note 3 : LS-H22(F) is the model No. for LS-H21(F) long sensing range spot reflective type sensor head combined with the LS-MR1 lens attachment for line reflective type sensor head. Hence, LS-H21(F) appears on the sensor head itself.
