Digital Fiber Sensor
High performance dual display amplifier with unprecedented stability and precision
The FX-500 is a highly advanced digital fiber sensor with high end features and a class leading stability and performance. An exclusive detection ASIC, designed specifically for the FX-500, is capable of processing ultra high-speed calculations while offering a long sensing range. Due to the impressive capabilities of this sensor, high precision detections can now be carried out where they were previously not possible.
High Visibility Dual Digital Display
A highly visibility dual digital display allows for simultaneous viewing of the threshold and incident light values for quick and effective setup and usage. The display is large, bright, and has a wide viewing angle for easily reading values from a distance.
Direct Threshold Setting / Direct Teaching
Teaching the amplifier is now done through the RUN mode of the amplifier, simplifying the setup process down to two presses of the 'set' button. The user can also directly change the threshold value using the '+' and '-' buttons.
New Super Quality Fibers
A new line of precision fiber optics are available that are designed to provide added stability to the FX-500 amplifier by diminishing part to part variance in intensity and fiber positioning.
- Stable emission intensity
Variation in emission intensity of the fiber core is controlled down to less than ±10%, achieving a stable detection.
- Integrated high-precision plug
The centering precision of the fiber core attached to the inserting plug is doubled allowing for the variation among units can be greatly suppressed.
- High flexibility
4mm Bending radius [Previous is R25 mm R0.984 in]
- High repeated bend capabilities
Bending durability of ten million times. [Previous is 1,000 times]
Each FX-500 unit is calibrated at the factory off a standard target to ensure that its digital value is constantly controlled, thus suppressing differences between amplifiers. When combined with our new super quality fibers, stability is maximized to ensure constant performance. This is critical in applications where any variations may cause false or non-detections.
The new HYPR mode that is incorporated in the FX-500 series allows for vastly increased detection distances with gains of up to 5.6x longer then the FX-301.
High Speed Detection
The FX-500 is capable of high-speed detections with a response time up to 25µs.
