Compact, high performance digital fiber optic sensors designed for easy use

Designed with ease of use in mind, the Panasonic FX-300 Series of digital fiber optic sensors offers a wide range of sensing possibilities in a compact, high-performance unit. The incorporation of a user-friendly jog-dial simplifies operation and maintenance, and intuitive programming minimizes the learning curve to a minimum for beginners and advanced users alike. Up to 16 sensors can be connted together at a time, and the optical communication function makes it easy to copy settings between sensors and save time. With a four digit set-up code built into the FX-300 series, settings can be restored after a reset back to operation quickly and painlessly. 




High performance fiber optic sensor with intuitive set-up and advanced functions

Incorporates user friendly push button jog dial switch and large mode selection button and easy to read display

Optional communication modules for flexible interfacing and remote maintenance

Variable term stable sensing

Control the light-emitting amount to a minute degree to allow stable sensing performance over long and short periods by suppressing deviations caused by the ambient environment that could not previously be suppressed. 


Light-emitting  customization

Customize the light-emitting amount of the sensor to stabilize sensing without changing the response time during close-range or minute object sensing.


Ultra high-speed response

Sensing of small objects moving at high speeds with ultra high-speed 35 µs response. 


User friendly, large display

The large 4 digit display allows for a greater difference in digit values and easy set up of threshold values.


Easy confirmation of settings

Toggle the jog switch to confirm the threshold value settings, even during RUN mode. 


Easy use, even for beginners

MODE NAVI uses six indicators to display the amplifier's basic operations, making it easy to use even for beginners. Current operation mode can be confirmed at a glance to prevent operation confusion. 


Detecting the presence or absence of labels: The light-emitting amount selection function can be used to stabilize detection of transparent labels that saturate the light-receiving level. 

Detecting the presence or absence of ICs on a tray: Set upper and lower limits for the threshold values using the window comparator mode and toggle the incident light intensity within that limit. 

Detecting the passage of small objects: The differential sensing mode will only detect rapid changes in the amount of light, making the detection of small objects possible.
