DF-G2 Series

Overview

Designed to achieve the world's fastest response rate, the DF-G2 fiber optic amplifier can achieve 10 microsecond response time with 5 microsecond repeatability.

  • Best in class response speeds of 10 μs, 15 μs, 50 μs, 250 μs, 500 μs, and 1000 μs
  • Easy-to-read dual digital displays show signal level and threshold values
  • Simple user interface ensures easy sensor set-up and programming via displays and switches/buttons or remote input teach wire
  • Expert TEACH and SET methods ensure optimal gain and threshold for all applications, especially for high speed or low contrast applications
  • Thermally stable electronics shortens start-up time and maintains signal stability during operation
  • Economy display mode reduces amplifier power consumption by 25%
  • Cross talk avoidance algorithm allows two sensors to operate in close proximity
