Detection based on “light”
Glossary useful for selecting Fibre Unit
Key terms for selection
The following is the key terms for selecting a fibre unit and their meaning.
Fibre unit length
The length of a fibre unit. A longer fibre unit can be installed at a location farther from the fibreoptic amplifier.
The range of temperature in which the fibre unit can be used. To use a fibre unit at high ambient temperature, it is recommended to select a heat-resistant type.
The index indicating the maximum radius in which the fibre unit can be bent and still operate without problems. Fibre units with smaller bend radius are beneficial in locations where routing is difficult.
The distance from which the sensor can detect targets.
Optical axis diameter
This index is mainly used for thrubeam model fibre units. For thrubeam fibre units, this is the size of object that will obstruct the optical axis entirely.
Minimum detectable object
The size of the smallest target which the fibre unit can detect.
