A single unit covers every application
FS-V10 Series fibre optic sensors feature both a digital LED indicator, which numerically displays the received light intensity, and a bar LED, which shows the level of detection stability (excess gain). The digital LED indicator can be used to align the optical axis and to display operating conditions during sensor mounting. The bar LED indicates detection stability during operation.
Optical axis alignment using digital LED indicator a powerful aid for optical axis alignment
In addition to the conventional AUTO SET button, FS-V10 Series fibre optic sensors feature a manual adjustment button, which enables fine adjustment. You can start detection after a quick calibration using the AUTO SET button, then make fine adjustments to the sensitivity using the manual button. Using only the automatic calibration or only the manual calibration will provide satisfactory detection. Even an inexperienced person can make very precise adjustments.
The FS-V10 Series can be used for high-precision detection of wire as thin as 0.01 mm in diameter with a thrubeam type fibre unit. It can also be used for detection in harsh environments where oil or dust exists. Because the FS-V10 Series can work in almost all applications, sensor selection is easy.
The digital LED monitor displays the light quantity at the light-receiving element incrementally from 0 to 4095. This enables you to determine the degree of dust accumulation on the sensor and the deviation in the optical axis. In addition, checking the change in the light quantity with the digital reading ensures an optimal setting value, improving the detection reliability.
The bar LED indicates detection stability using a 7-level bar LED. The bar LED shows when maintenance is required at a glance, which is difficult to notice with the digital display.
