R55F Fiber Optic Series

Overview

  • Delivers outstanding color contrast sensitivity
  • Reliably detects 16 levels of grayscale at up to 10,000 actuations per second
  • Available in two fiber types: economical plastic for repeated flexing and glass for harsh conditions
  • Offers choice of models with an infrared (glass only) or visible green, blue, red or white LED
  • Provides 10 to 30V dc supply voltage with bipolar NPN or PNP outputs
  • Features push-button programming for easy-to-set static, dynamic and remote TEACH
  • Uses push-button for manual sensitivity adjustment
  • Easily mounts in confined areas, either flat or to 35 mm DIN rail

ConstructionBlack ABS/polycarbonate blend; nylon fiber clip mounts to standard 35 mm DIN rail

One stainless-steel right-angle bracket and one PBT polyester bracket for mounting to flat surfaces also included with sensor
Connections2 m or 9 m 5-wire attached PVC cable, or 5-pin Euro-style quick-disconnect fitting. QD cable are ordered separately. Fibers:Fiber clip (no tools required)
Operating ConditionsTemperature:-10 to +55° C
Relative humidity:90% @ 50° C (non-condensing)
Application Notes• Do not mount the fiber tip directly perpendicular to shiny surfaces; position it at approximately a 15° angle in relation to the sensing target.

• Minimize web or product flutter whenever possible to maximize sensing reliability.
