Even More Useful When Connected to a PC
The configuration software, IG Configurator, allows for a wide range of settings to be made including the monitoring of the waveforms of received light and the measurement modes.
The user can enter all settings including the measurement modes into a PC and then transfer them to the sensor. The management of setting data is simple and very convenient when two or more sensors are used.

Measurement conditions such as the waveforms of received light can be displayed in real time. The mounting and sensitivity settings can also be adjusted more precisely.
(if a measurement target is large)
(to measure the difference in level or inclination)
The set value used to judge whether light enters or is blocked, based on the amount of light received by the CCD, is called the binarization level. The amount of light received when the reference waveform is registered is regarded as the 100% level. The light is judged to be blocked if the amount of light is less than the specified binarization level. The IG Series initially sets a binarization level of 25% and the user can change the level according to the application.
This function shifts an internal measurement value to 0 (to offset the value). When the target value is changed, this function can be used to shift an internal measurement value to the new target value.
