Ample sensing distance even with thin fiber
The sensing range of the thin reflective type fiber is about 1.6 times longer than that of a conventional product (the sensing range of the
standard reflective type fiber is about 1.4 times longer). This adds extra flexibility to the sensor layout.

Incident light intensity
When the hysteresis is the same, the higher incident
light intensity results in more stable detection.
When the hysteresis is the same, the
higher incident light intensity results in
more stable detection.
FX-551
Easy adjustment of beam axis
Thanks to the high emission
power, a slight deviation of
beam axis causes no problem.
It is ideal for use in dusty
areas* or for detection through
an extremely small slit.
Stable detection!

Equipped with a mode to minimize the effect of
ambient light
When setting to activate the
environment resistance mode in
the emission frequency setting,
the ambient illuminance for
LED lights becomes about 2.5
times higher than that in the
normal mode. This reduces
erroneous detections caused by
LED lights.
Simplified functions for improved operation ease
The FX-500 series and newer models are equipped with only basic functions for improved ease of use. No matter which model you
select, they are all easy to use.
MODE NAVI + Direct setting
No need to specify a main unit or sub unit
Wire-saving, space-saving
MODE NAVI uses three indicators and a dual display to
show the amplifier’s basic operations. The current operation
mode can be confirmed at a glance, so even a first-time user
can easily operate the amplifier.
All FX-500 amplifiers can be used as either a main unit
or a sub unit. Just use a main cable or a sub cable to
distinguish the two. This reduces the costs of inventory
management.
The quick-connection cables enable reduction in wiring.
The connections and man-hours required for the relay
terminal block setup can be reduced and valuable
space is saved.
