          Fibre Unit

          FU series

          Area Detection Fibre Optic Sensor Heads

          Stable and Accurate-- Wide Area Detection with ToughFlex Fibre Sensor Heads

          Thrubeam sensor lineup

          Thrubeam sensor lineup

          1: When the FS-V30 Series is used. The detecting distances in parentheses show the data when the APC function is ON.
          2: The smallest detectable object was determined at the optimal detecting distance and sensitivity setting.
          3: R10 R0.39" for the first 10 mm 0.39" of cable from the housing.

          Thrubeam array type

          Thrubeam array type

          1. When the FS-N10 Series is used. 2. R10 for the first 10 mm of cable from the housing.

          Thrubeam area type

          Thrubeam area type

          1. When the FS-N10 Series is used. The maximum detection distance is set at 3600 mm because the fibre length is 2 m on one side.

          Reflective sensor lineup

          Reflective sensor lineup

          Reflective array type

          1. When the FS-N10 Series is used.
          2. R10 for the first 10 mm of cable from the housing.
          3. The minimum detectable object was determined at the optimal detecting distance and sensitivity setting.

          Reflective area type

          Reflective area type

          1. When the FS-N10 Series is used.
          2. The minimum detectable object was determined at the optimal detecting distance and sensitivity setting.

          Array sensors

          Created with emphasis on wide area detection. Rated IP67, it is sturdy and easy to use.

          POINT[1] TOUGH BODY

          Protected by a die-cast metal case. The internal structure is filled with epoxy resin, therefore this unit is able to withstand cracks caused by impact or breakdown caused by the infiltration of liquid into the device.

          POINT[2] STRONG CABLE BASE

          The cable base unit (50 mm), uses a stainless-steel jacket. This protects the base unit, which takes on a load when the cable is winded. It is possible to install the device in a narrow space without worry.

          POINT[3] EASY OPTICAL AXIS ALIGNMENT

          Similarities with an array fibre

          Uses bundle fibre*1. Arranges 30 core fibres with a diameter of 0.25 mm. Because the light expands in a wide field, optical axis alignment can be performed with ease.
          *1 A bundle of thin, raw fibre wires.

          POINT[4] SLIM BODY

          Compact structure, excellent for narrow installation.
          (L:120 mm x W:17 mm x T:5 mm)

          POINT[5] COST EFFICIENT AND TIME SAVING

          Eliminate multiple sensors installation for wide area detection applications.

          Area Sensors

          Light is diffused with a lens to cover a wide area.

          Feature 1: Unaffected by surrounding objects

          FU-E11 Spot Length (Example)

          The thin beam makes it difficult for surrounding objects to influence the beam. Perfect for use in locations where sensors will be close to many devices.

          Feature 2: Uniform intensity distribution

          Relationship between received and shielded light (Example)

          Thrubeam area sensors can stably sense minute changes in light intensity making it ideal for small target detection.

          Slit plate

          Slit plate

          Small targets can be detected if the optional, metal slit plate is used to narrow the width and thickness of the beam.

          Applications

          Confirmation

          It is also possible to stably detect workpieces that vary in drop position.

          Conventional

          Conventional

          Multiple sensors are arranged and installed

          FU-A Series

          FU-A Series

          Full range covered with a single unit

          Differentiation of product type

          By using 2 output amplifiers, it is possible to distinguish different workpiece types with a single unit.

          Conventional

          Conventional

          Sensors are installed for each individual product type

          FU-A Series

          FU-A Series

          Output possible in response to the amount of blocked light
