       From designing and constructing equipment to exporting and maintenance
         Beam-axis alignment indicators help to reduce startup time
         The beam channels of the light curtain are displayed in four blocks so that incident light position is shown at a glance. When the
         beam channel at the bottommost channel (or topmost channel), which is used as a reference for beam-axis alignments, is
         correctly aligned, the LED blinks red. After this, each block lights red as the beam axes successively become aligned. When
         all channel beam axes are aligned, all LEDs light green. The display also has a stability indicator (STB) added so that setup
         can be carried out with greater stability.

         A single model supports both PNP and NPN polarities reducing model numbers
         PNP transistor output and NPN transistor output are combined in a single model. Overseas equipment that uses PNP,
         replacement with NPN sensors, factories that are positively grounded, and transfer of equipment overseas are all situations
         where the control circuits for a single model are suitable for use worldwide.

          ■ Polarity can be changed easily by changing wiring
             When the output polarity setting wire (shield) is
             connected to 0 V, PNP output is selected, and when it
             is connected to 24 V, it switches to NPN output.

 A safety relay unit is needed for connecting safety devices other than                      Direct connection of various safety devices is possible for a simplified
 light curtain.                                                                              safety circuit.


    By using the handy-controller SFC-HC up to three sets of light curtains can be cascade connected for a consolidated safety output. (Note)                                                                  HC

       By using the Y-shaped connector, the least required wires such as power or safety output are consolidated into one cable. Man-hours taken
       for wiring is eliminated to the minimum. Construction times as well as wiring mistakes are greatly reduced.

Notes: 1) The above diagram is when using manual reset. If automatic reset                                                   Notes: 1) The above diagram is when using manual reset. If automatic reset
          is used, disconnect the lead from X2 and connect it to X3.                                                                   is used, disconnect the lead from X2 and connect it to X3.
          In this case, a reset (RESET) button is not needed.                                                                          In this case, a reset (RESET) button is not needed.
       2) Use a momentary-type switch as the reset (RESET) button.                                                                  2) Use a momentary-type switch as the reset (RESET) button.
       3) Unused wires must be insulated.                                                                                           3) Unused wires must be insulated.

          I/O CIRCUIT AND WIRING DIAGRAMS

     Connection example
     Basic wiring: Min. operation only
     This is the general configuration using one set of the emitter and receiver facing each other. The control outputs (OSSD 1 / OSSD 2) turn OFF
     if the light is interrupted, while they automatically turn ON if receive the light.
     The auxiliary output is used to invalid the external device monitoring function. The auxiliary output cannot be connected to external devices.
