The industry’s leading fiber amplifier in sensing performance Thanks to its new “application-specific integrated circuit” (ASIC), Panasonic can solve applications with fiber optic sensors that were previously impossible. Not only can the FX-500 reach a response time of 25µs while providing extremely accurate detection, integrated logic functions save you money because external controllers are no longer needed for normal applications and threshold tracking and self-diagnostic functions save time for maintenance. Moreover, the reliability of the detection has increased by 75% compared to that of previous models. The customer can choose between digital output types with one or two outputs, or an analog output type. Characteristics: • One 4-digit green, one 4-digit red LCD display • Copy settings via optical interface • Decreased variations among amplifiers • Input for external settings, i.e. threshold value (not available for FX-501) • Up to 8 settings can be saved and loaded (data bank) • Logical calculation functions • Light intensity and gain setting for transparent object detection • Threshold tracking • Self-diagnosis output • Display easy readable at angles of up to 60° • Superior quality fibers (listed in the FX-500 brochure) Accessories: • Quick connection cables in lengths of 1, 2 or 5m • End plates • Protection cover
