Smart Fiber Amplifier Units

2-channel Amplifier reduces installation space by half. Downsized Equipment and Control Panels

  • The new 2 channel fiber amplifier unit has two-unit functions in the dimensions of the general one-unit, contributing to downsizing your equipment and control panels.
  • Performance with highly stable detection and even two channels. From transparent objects to low-reflective workpieces.
  • Easy to set the light intensity and threshold automatically.
  • Wire-saving Connector models that reduce wiring work.

Logic operations without PLC

e3nx fa amplifier prod

The AND, OR, XOR and GAP functionality among others for both fiber channels allows simple signal processing without the need for a PLC. This allows the addition of sensor checks to machines without reprogramming the PLC.

Space & cost reduction

e3nx fa operations prod

The 2 in 1 amplifier replaces two standard amplifiers reducing space requirements and hardware cost.

1. A Sensor Communications Unit is required if you want to use the Fiber Amplifier Unit on a network.
2. Two sensor outputs are allocated in the programmable logic controller PLC I/O table.
PLC operation via Communications Unit enables reading detected values and changing settings.
3. When connected to an OMRON NJ-series Controller.
4. The tuning will not change the number of units.
The least unit count among the mutual interference prevention units of E3NX and E3NC.
Check the mutual interference prevention unit count and response speed of each model.
5. The mutual interference prevention function is disabled if the detection mode is set to super-high-speed mode.
6. The bank is not reset by the user reset function or saved by the user save function.
7. When the number of connected units is 11 or more, the ambient temperature is less than 50°C.
