Notes:

1) Where measurement conditions have not been specified precisely, the conditions used were an ambient temperature of +20 °C +68 °F.
2) The operating range is the possible setting distance between the emitter and the receiver. The light curtain can detect an object less than 0.3 m 0.984 ft away.
3) When the floating blanking function is used, the size of the min. sensing object is changed.
4) The outputs are not "OFF" when muting function is active even if the beam channel is interruped.
5) In case the blanking function is valid, the operation mode is changed.
6) Please use 12-core cable.
7) The manual reset and auto reset are possible to be switched depending on the wiring status.
8) In case of using optional function, the handy-controller (SFB-HC) (optional) is required.
9) The cable can be extended within 30 m 98.425 ft (for emitter / receiver) when two light curtains are connected in series, within 20 m 65.617 ft when three light curtains are connected in series.
