DF-G3 Series

Overview

Developed to provide world-class long-range detection, DF-G3 fiber amplifiers are advanced sensors featuring dual digital displays for use with plastic and glass fiber optic assemblies.

  • World-class long-range sensing capability, more than 3 m (10 ft) with opposed mode fibers
  • Easy to read dual digital displays show both signal level and threshold simultaneously
  • Simple user interface ensures easy sensor set-up and programming via displays and switches/buttons or remote input teach wire
  • Cross-talk avoidance function allows seven inspections in dense sensing point applications
  • Energy efficient light resistance enables stable detection in industrial lighting environments
  • High-power amplifier with small core fibers enables precise position sensing of small components
  • Multi-function remote wire allows control of the LED, outputs, remote teach input, and cross-talk avoidance.
  • Operator control of the sensitivity (hysteresis) provides additional detection sensitivity, or a stabilized output depending on the application details
  • Lever action fiber clamp provides stable, reliable, and trouble-free fiber clamping
  • Expert TEACH and SET methods ensure optimal gain and threshold for all applications, especially for high speed or low contrast applications
  • Models with single, dual, and analog output types available
  • Visible red LED models enable easy alignment of the light to the target
  • Infrared LED models provide twice the range and optical power of visible red LED models
  • Long wavelength infrared models are a powerful solution for detecting water based liquids
