Long-range sensing made possible with built-in optical lens
Stable long-term sensing
Enhanced worksite-friendly installability
For the first time in the industry, an
optical ‘double coupling lens’ has been
incorporated directly into the fiber
sensor itself. This lens maximizes the
light emission efficiency, resulting in a
tremendous improvement in the
sensing range. Sensing ranges with
small diameter fibers and ultra-small
diameter fibers, which have become
very popular in recent years due to the
miniaturization of chip components,
have been increased by 50 % over
previous values achieved with other
amplifiers.
The newly developed four-chemical
emitting element that uses the FX-301
(red LED type) suppresses changes
over long periods of time as much as
possible, so that a stable light emitting
level is maintained. There is very little
element deterioration so that stable
and accurate sensing can be
maintained over long periods.
Our new fiber cutter utilizes a specially
developed two-in-one fiber attachment
that now makes it possible to cut two
fibers simultaneously to exactly the
same length. Also, since the fibers can
be attached to the amplifier while
being fixed in position in the two-in-one
fiber attachment, sensitivity changes
due to variation in the amount of fiber
insertion do not occur.

Selectable response time
We offer 4 selectable levels to
correspond with various applications:
the response time 150 !s FAST mode,
the LONG mode, perfect for adverse
environments, and the S-D mode,
especially made for minute detection.

Easy maintenance, as main
and sub units are identical
Wiring- and labor-saving design allows sideby-side configuration for up to sixteen units
Both main and sub units utilize the same
amplifier body. This feature allows for
easy mounting in the side-by-side
configuration. The main and sub unit
functions are distinguished only by the
proper use of 3-core main cable and the
1-core sub cable. Moreover, by utilizing
the same body for both main and sub
units, inventor y management and
maintenance is simplified.
Up to sixteen amplifiers can be
connected in a side-by-side configuration.
As the sub cable contains only one output
line, a great amount of wiring and space
can be saved. Also, special ‘sliding’
connectors have been provided for all
main and sub cables, which can be
detached merely by releasing the lock
and pulling directly back, without having
to slide the amplifier body to the side.
Using this connector system, only a
minimal amount of space is required for
regular maintenance.
Environmentally friendly packaging
With regard to effects on the environment,
we only utilize the simplest of packaging
methods greatly contributing to the reduction
in wastes generated by your worksite.
Also, the bags are made of polyethylene, a
substance that doesn’t give off polluting
gases when burned.
Polyethylene packaging
Even beginners can quickly learn how to use the MODE NAVI
MODE NAVI uses six indicators to display the amplifier’s basic operations. The current operating mode can be confirmed at a
glance, so even a first time user can easily operate the amplifier without becoming confused.
The use of only two switches makes for very simple operations
Only two switches, the large jog switch and the large MODE key, are required for
operation. Depressing the large MODE key sets the ‘mode selection’ and ‘mode
cancel’ functions. The large jog switch is used to select from the detailed functions
available within each mode, as well as to change numerical values after the mode
has been chosen.

4 types of light sources available
In addition to our red LED (four-chemical
emitting element) type, the blue, green,
and infrared LED types are also provided
to correspond to your specific application.
Optical communication function lets
multiple sensors be adjusted all at once
The optical communication function
allows the data that is currently set to
be copied and saved all at once for all
amplifiers connected together from the
right side. This greatly reduces
troublesome setup tasks and makes
setup much smoother.
Equipped with each type of timer
These sensors are equipped with 3
types of timers, ON-delay, OFF-delay,
and ONE SHOT, for compatibility to
variegated environments.
ON-delay timer
This function is useful for sensing only
objects taking a long time travel.
OFF-delay timer
This function is useful when the
connected device has a slow response
time.
ONE SHOT timer
This function is useful when the input
specifications of the connected device
require a signal of fixed width.
Easy code input setting
Every function can be directly set merely by the input of a four digit code (numbers) from the code table. This convenient
feature is easy to set up.
In the event that settings are accidentally changed at the operating site, merely entering the correct code can restore the
original settings. This results in easy and quick maintenance.
Invertible digital display
Selectable cable length
The digital display can be inverted as per its orientation once mounted onto the amplifier.
Made available are 3 lengths, 1 m 3.281 ft,
2 m 6.562 ft, and 5 m 16.404 ft, to suit
your application requirements. This helps
reduce the waste caused by cutting cables
and lightens the installation workload.

APPLICATIONS
Workpieces detection
Sensing semi-transparent stickers
Sensing register marks
This standard type of FX-301 using red light
has a four-chemical emitting element for
stable sensing over long periods.
The blue LED type greatly reduces the
dampening rate, making it ideal for delicate
sensing.
The green LED type can accurately
discriminate between red and yellow, that
cannot be easily detected using red LED
type.
Sensing film meandering
Detecting chip component
Infrared LED type is ideal for sensing
environments with light restrictions, such as
places where light-sensitive film is being
handled. (The emission peak wavelength:
940 nm 0.037 mil.) It includes full-auto
teaching function which allows sensitivity to
be set without stopping the workpiece line.
Because of low light intensity fluctuations
when detecting minute moving objects,
decrease the hysteresis in PRO mode and
accurate sensing will be possible in highspeed mode. This method is optimal for chip
component verification in taping equipment.
Detecting register marks on a
transparent sheet
08/2005
When detecting registration marks on
transparent film with a thru-beam type, the
S-D (reduced light intensity) mode will
enable minute light intensity fluctuation
sensing.

Notes: 1) Please take care that the sensing range of the free-cut type fiber may be reduced by 20 % max. depending upon how the fiber is cut. In addition, the infrared
type is easily affected by humidity, so contact our office if using these sensors in environments with high humidity or where humidity levels can fluctuate.
Notes: 2) The minimum sensing object size is the value for red LED type. Please contact our office for information on the minimum sensing object size if using
amplifiers other than red LED type.
The optimum condition is the condition when the sensitivity is set so that the sensing output just changes to light incident operation in the object absent
condition.
Notes: 3) Sensing range for a 2 m 6.562 ft long fiber. A 10 m 32.808 ft long fiber will cause damping of the beam and cannot be used.
Notes: 4) The fiber cutter is not supplied as an accessory with FT-NB8 and FT-N8. Please order it separately.

Notes: 1) Please take care that the sensing range of the free-cut type fiber may be reduced by 20 % max. depending upon how the fiber is cut. In addition, the infrared
type is easily affected by humidity, so contact our office if using these sensors in environments with high humidity or where humidity levels can fluctuate.
Notes: 2) The minimum sensing object size is the value for red LED type. Please contact our office for information on the minimum sensing object size if using amplifiers other than red LED
type. The optimum condition is the condition when the sensitivity is set so that the sensing output just changes to light incident operation in the object absent condition.
Notes: 3) The fiber cable length practically limits the sensing range to 3,500 mm 137.795 in long.

Notes: 2) Please take care that the sensing range of the free-cut type fiber may be reduced by 20 % max. depending upon how the fiber is cut. In addition, the
infrared type is easily affected by humidity, so contact our office if using these sensors in environments with high humidity or where humidity levels can
fluctuate.
Notes: 3) The minimum sensing object size is the value for red LED type at maximum sensitivity. Please contact our office for information on the minimum sensing
object size if using amplifiers other than red LED type.
Also, note that the corresponding setting distance is different from the rated sensing distance.
Notes: 4) The fiber cutter is not supplied as an accessory with FD-N8 and FD-N4. Please order it separately.

Notes: 2) Please take care that the sensing range of the free-cut type fiber may be reduced by 20 % max. depending upon how the fiber is cut. In addition, the
infrared type is easily affected by humidity, so contact our office if using these sensors in environments with high humidity or where humidity levels can
fluctuate.
Notes: 3) The minimum sensing object size is the value for red LED type at maximum sensitivity. Please contact our office for information on the minimum sensing
object size if using amplifiers other than red LED type.
Also, note that the corresponding setting distance is different from the rated sensing distance. However, with the fixed-focus reflective type, when the
sensitivity is at MAX., it is only possible to detect the minimum size of the sensing object at a distance corresponding to the convergent point.
Notes: 4) Following is the allowable cutting range from the end that the amplifier is inserted FD-F8Y: 1,000 mm 39.370 in, FD-G6X: 700 mm 27.559 in.

Notes: 1) Be careful when installing the thru-beam type fiber equipped with the expansion lens, as the beam envelope becomes narrow and alignment is difficult.
Especially when installing a fiber with many cores (sharp bending fibers and heat-resistant glass fiber) please be sure to use it only after you have adjusted it sufficiently.
Notes: 2) The sensing ranges are the values for red LED type amplifier. Please contact our office for details on sensing ranges for other types of amplifiers.
Notes: 3) The fiber cable length practically limits the sensing range to 3.500 mm 137.795 in long (FT-H20W-M1 and FT-H20-M1: 1,600 mm 62.992 in).

Fiber attachment
It’s possible to simultaneously cut two fibers to the same length
Each fiber (with some exceptions) has a newly developed two-in-one fiber attachment (FX-AT3/AT4/AT5/AT6) which enables two fibers to be cut simultaneously
to the same length with the new fiber cutter (FX-CT2). Also, since the fibers can be attached to the amplifier while being fixed in position in the two-in-one fiber
attachment, sensitivity changes resulting from variation in the amount of fiber insertion do not occur.

PRECAUTIONS FOR PROPER USE
Amplifier
This product is not a safety sensor. Its use is not
intended or designed to protect life and prevent body
injury or property damage from dangerous parts of
machinery. It is a normal object detection sensor.
Mounting
How to mount the amplifier
1 Fit the rear part of the amplifier on
a 35 mm 1.378 in width DIN rail.
2 Press down the front part of the
mounting section of the amplifier on
the 35 mm 1.378 in width DIN rail.
35 mm 1.378 in width DIN rail
How to remove the amplifier
1 Push the amplifier forward.
2 Lift up the front part of the
amplifier to remove it.
Note: Take care that if the front part is lifted without pushing the amplifier
forward, the hook on the rear portion of the mounting section is likely to
break.
Cascading amplifiers
• Make sure that the power supply is off while cascading or removing the amplifier.
• Make sure to check the allowable ambient temperature, as it
depends on the number of amplifiers connected in cascade.
• In case two, or more, amplifiers are connected in cascade,
make sure to mount them on a DIN rail.
• When connecting in cascade, mount the amplifiers close to each other, fitting
them between the optional end plates (MS-DIN-E) mounted at the two ends.
• When the amplifiers move on the DIN rail depending on
the attaching condition, fitting them between the optional
end plates (MS-DIN-E) mounted at the two ends.
• Up to maximum 15 amplifiers can be added (total 16
amplifiers connected in cascade.)
• When connecting more than two amplifiers in cascade,
use the sub cable (CN-71-C) as the quick-connection
cable for the second amplifier onwards.
• Between the FX-301B(P)/G(P)/H(P) and the FX-301(P),
the setting status copy function via communication signal
cannot be used. If coupling these, please arrange
identical models one at a time.
How to connect the fiber cables
Cascading method
1 Snap the fiber lock lever down.
2 Insert fiber cables slowly into the
inlets until they stop. (Note 1)
3 Return the fiber lock lever
to the original position, till
it stops.
Notes: 1) In case the fiber cables are not inserted to a position where they
stop, the sensing range reduces.
Notes: 2) With the coaxial reflective type fiber, such as, FD-G4 or FD-FM2,
insert the single-core fiber cable into the beam-emitting inlet and
the multi-core fiber cable into the beam-receiving inlet. If they are
inserted in reverse, the sensing accuracy will deteriorate.
Connection
• Make sure that the power supply is off while connecting
or disconnecting the quick-connection cable.
Connection method
1 Holding the connector of the
quick-connection cable, align its
projection with the groove at
the top portion of the amplifier
connector.
2 Insert the connector till a click
is felt.
Disconnection method
1 Pressing the projection at the top of
the quick-connection cable connector,
pull out the connector.
1 Mount the amplifiers, one by
one, on the 35 mm1.378 in
width DIN rail.
1 (For details, refer to ‘Mounting’.)
2 Slide the sub units next to the
main unit, and connect the
quick-connection cables.
3 Mount the optional end plates
(MS-DIN-E) at both the ends to
hold the amplifiers between
their flat sides.
4 Tighten the screws to fix the
end plates (MS-DIN-E).
Dismantling
1 Loosen the screws of the end
plates (MS-DIN-E).
2 Remove the end plates (MS-DIN-E).
3 Slide the sub units and remove
them one by one.
3 (For details, refer to ‘Mounting’.)
Operation procedure
• When the power supply is switched on, communication
self-check is carried out and nor mal condition is
displayed [MODE indicator / RUN (green) lights up and
the digital display shows incident light intensity].
• When MODE key is pressed, the mode changes as per the diagram below.
Note: Take care that it the connector is pulled out
without pressing the projection, the projection
may break. Do not use a quick-connection
cable whose projection has broken.
Note: Further, do not pull by holding the cable, as
this can cause a cable-break.

Wiring
• Make sure that the power supply is off while wiring.
• Verify that the supply voltage variation is within the rating.
• Take care that if a voltage exceeding the rated range is
applied, or if an AC power supply is directly connected, the
sensor may get burnt or damaged.
• If power is supplied from a commercial switching regulator,
ensure that the frame ground (F.G.) terminal of the power
supply is connected to an actual ground.
• In case noise generating equipment (switching regulator,
inverter motor, etc.) is used in the vicinity of this product,
connect the frame ground (F.G.) terminal of the equipment
to an actual ground.
• Take care that short-circuit or wrong wiring of the load may
burn or damage the sensor.
• Do not run the wires together with high-voltage lines or
power lines or put them in the same raceway. This can
cause malfunction due to induction.
• Ensure that an isolation transformer is utilized for the DC
power supply. If an auto transformer is utilized, the main
amplifier or power supply may be damaged.
• Make sure to use the optional quick-connection cable for
the connection of the amplifier. Extension up to total
100 m 328.084 ft is possible with 0.3 mm2, or more, cable.
However, in order to reduce noise, make the wiring as
short as possible.

Narrow beam type fiber mounting
• Take care that, since the aperture angle of this product is very
narrow, the beam may not be received depending upon the setting.
At the time of installation, determine a reference plane, as shown in
the figure below, and taking sufficient care against beam
misalignment or tilt, install the emitting and receiving fibers so that
they are parallel.
<FT-K8>
Connection with reflective coaxial type fiber
• With reflective coaxial type fiber, insert the center fiber
cable (single-core) into the beam-emitting inlet and the
outer fiber cable (multi-core) into the beam-receiving inlet.
FD-H35-M2 or FD-H20-M1 is marked ‘P’ on the beamemitting fiber cable and ‘D’ on the beam-receiving fiber cable.
FD-WG4, FD-WSG4 and FD-G4, FD-G6, FD-G6X are
composed of beam-emitting and beam-receiving fiber
cables that are different in diameter.
FD-G500, FD-EG1, FD-EG2, FD-EG3, FD-E22,
FD-H20-21 and FD-ENM1S1 are marked P on the
beam-emitting fiber cable.
<FT-KV8 / FT-WKV8>
Notes: 1) In case the fiber cables are not inserted to a position where they
stop, the sensing range reduces.
Notes: 2) Before connecting fiber cables to the amplifier, mount the fiber
attachments on their ends.
Thru-beam type wide beam fiber mounting
• Take care that, since the aperture angle of this product is
Fiber cable bending radius
• If the fiber cable is bent at a smaller bending radius than allowable
bending radius, the sensing range decreases due to beam attenuation.
For a allowable bending radius of 25 mm (0.984 in)
very narrow, the beam may not be received depending
upon the setting.
At the time of installation, determine a reference plane, as
shown in the figure below, and taking sufficient care
against beam misalignment or tilt, install the beamemitting and receiving fibers so that they are parallel.
Note: Please note that the 350 °C 662 °F
heat-resistant fibers, vacuumresistant and chemical-resistant
fibers cannot bend less than the
allowable bending radius.
How to bend sleeve
• The bending radius must be R10 mm R0.394 in or more.
Please bend gradually using the fiber bender (FB-1) or a
round bar of "20 mm "0.787 in or more.
• Install the fiber using M3
countersunk head screws.
The tightening torque should
be 0.3 Nm or less.
Further, when using the fiber
at places having intense
vibrations, use a screwlocking adhesive, etc.
• If mineral oil or solvent containing mineral oil component
adheres to the sensing surface, the lens may be
deformed. Take sufficient care to handle them.
Note: Do not bend the sleeve of side-view type, narrow beam type, narrowview type and ultra-small diameter type fiber.
Use of heat-resistant type fiber
• Use by keeping 150 mm 5.906 in, or more, of the heatresistant fiber cable part at normal temperature.
Method of fixing fiber cable
• If fixing the fiber cable in position, make sure that it is set in
a manner as shown below, so that no load is applied on the
fiber. (Excluding FT-H35-M2, FT-H35-M2S6, FD-H35-M2
and FD-H35-M2S6)
• Protect the amplifier from heat radiation or hot air.
• With the 350 C 662 °F heat-resistant type fiber, the
surface of the fiber head or the spiral may be discolored
by heat. However, this does not affect its performance.

(
)
Leakage: 1.3310–10 Pam3/sec. [He] or less
Mounting
1 Make two holes on the vacuum tank wall (chamber
wall or flange).
Notes: 1) The fiber cables should be cut in one stroke.
Notes: 2) Once a fiber cable is cut off at a hole, do not use the hole again. If
used, it degrades the cut surface quality and the detectability may
deteriorate.
Notes: 3) The blade cannot be replaced. Please purchase an additional fiber
cutter, if required.
Notes: 4) Note that the sensing range may be reduced by up to 20 %
depending on the cut condition. Hence, decide the setting distance
by taking sufficient margin.
Seal type slit mask for FT-WA30/A30, FT-WA8/A8
• Two types of slit masks are enclosed. (one type for
FT-A30 and FT-WA30) Apply the enclosed slit mask when
detecting small objects or as measures not to saturate the
emitted light amount for short-range sensing.
However, the sensing range is reduced when the slit mask
is mounted.
As the slit mask is seal type, stick it by aligning the
projection of the slit mask with the upper portion of the
fiber head, as shown in the figure below.
Slit masks
Note: The hole diameter must be from
" 5.5 to " 6.0 mm " 0.217 to
"0.236 in.
2 Mount the FV-BR1 photo-terminal on the vacuum tank
wall.
Notes: 1) The attached O-ring must be mounted.
Notes: 2) The O-ring must be used at the atmospheric side.
Notes: 3) The tightening torque should be 0.58 Nm or less.
3 Mount the FT-J6 atmospheric side fibers on the
atmospheric side of the FV-BR1 photo-terminals.
Notes: 1) The fixing nuts must be tightened securely. If not, the sensing
range may decrease.
Notes: 2) The tightening torque should be 0.58 Nm or less.

PRECAUTIONS FOR PROPER USE.
Fiber
FT-L8Y/V8Y chemical-resistant type fiber
• Do not use it in the following chemicals:
Dissolved alkali metals (Natrium, Potassium or Lithium),
Fluorine gas (F2), CIF3, OF2 (including gaseous state).
• The beam axis mark is indicated on the side-view fiber.
Perform the beam alignment with the beam axis marks, on
the receiver and the emitter, facing each other.
Mounting
• Use a commercial Fluorine resin
joint to mount the fiber.
• The bending radius of the protective
jacket should be R30 mm 1.181 in
or more. It will be damaged under
the value.
• The bending radius of the bear
fiber should be R25 mm R0.984 in
or more. The sensing range will be
shortened under the value.
• Do not subject the fiber under tension.
• Although the chemical-resistant type fiber is rated for use
up to 115 °C 239 °F, place 100 mm 3.937 in or more
of the fiber in the normal temperature area to protect the
amplifier.
FD-F8Y liquid level sensing fiber
Mounting
• Use a commercially available fluorine resin joint, etc., to
install FD-F8Y.
Cautions
• Take care that unclear liquid may not be sensed stably.
• Take care that the tube may stretch by maximum 2 % of
the total length if it is used at a high temperature.
• Do not scratch the fiber jacket while cutting the fluorine
resin tube.

PRECAUTIONS FOR PROPER USE.
Fiber
FD-F4 and FD-F9 liquid level sensing fiber
Cautions
Mounting
• Mount the fiber head on a pipe with the attached tying
bands and anti-slip tubes as shown in the figure below.
Make sure that the release lever is retracted (position as in
the fig.) before mounting.
Fasten two tying bands, as shown, and cut off the excess
portions.
• If other tying bands are to be used, the dimension A shown
in the figure below should be 2.5 mm 0.098 in or less.
• Liquid in a pipe which is not transparent cannot be sensed
correctly.
• Unclear or viscous liquid may not be sensed.
• Fit the fiber head to the pipe securely, otherwise the
operation may be erroneous.
• Take care that no dew condenses on the pipe’s sensing
surface or the pipe’s inside wall and no bubble attaches on
the pipe’s inside wall, since it can affect the operation.
• Neither the FD-F4 or the FD-F9 is waterproof or
chemical-resistant. Installation should be avoided at any
place where it could come in direct contact with water or
chemicals.
• Do not apply excessive tensile force to the fiber cable.
Cautions for FX-MR2 zoom lens usage
• The spot diameter and the sensing range are adjustable
by the screw-in depth as follows.
• In case of mounting using the two mounting holes, use M3
screws, plain washers, and spring washers.
The tightening torque should be 0.5 Nm or less.
Please arrange the M3 screws, plain washers, and
spring washers separately.
(
)
• In case of mounting on the pipe with tying bands, the fiber
position can be easily adjusted.
Adjustment
• After FX-MR2 is set on the fiber
head at the desired depth, tighten
the attached nut securely.
1 Unlock the release lever
(in the direction of the
arrow).
• To mount FX-MR2 with a set screw,
use a M3 set screw (cup point). The
tightening torque should be 0.29
Nm or less.
2 Press the movable
center holders forward
to loosen the tying
bands and adjust the
position.
Caution for FX-MR3, FX-MR6 finest spot lens usage
• Screw FX-MR3, FX-MR6 on the fiber head until the fiber is
fully inserted.
The tightening torque should be 0.29 Nm or less.
3 Lock the release lever
to its original place.
Notes: 1) Whenever the mounting position is changed, adjust the sensitivity again.
Notes: 2) The lever mechanism must be used only to adjust the position, and
not for tightening the tying bands. If tying bands are tightened while
the lever is open, and then the lever is locked, the fiber may be
damaged.

PRECAUTIONS FOR PROPER USE.
Fiber
Cautions for FX-MR5 side-view zoom lens usage
• The spot diameter and the sensing range are adjustable
by the screw-in depth as follows.
Others
• Do not use the fiber at places having intense vibrations, as
this can cause malfunction.
• Keep the fiber head surface
intact. If it is scratched or
spoiled, the detectability will
deteriorate.
• Do not expose the fiber cable
to any organic solvents.
Excluding
chemicalresistant type fiber
• Do not use the fiber head in places where it may come in
direct contact with water. A water drop on the fiber head
deteriorates the sensing.
• Ensure that any strong extraneous light is not incident on
the receiving face of the fiber head.
• Do not apply excessive tensile force to the fiber cable.
• Take care that the sensor is not directly exposed to
fluorescent light from a rapidstarter lamp or a high frequency
lighting device, as it may affect the
sensing performance.
• Since the sensing portion of the wide beam or narrow
beam fiber is concave shaped, take care that dust or dirt
does not collect on it.
• In case it does collect, wipe it with a dry soft cloth.
(
• After FX-MR5 is set on the fiber
head at the desired depth, tighten
the attached nut NT-FX-MR5
securely.
• The tightening torque should be 0.5 Nm or less when
tightening FX-MR5 with a screw.
Fitting protective tube
• The threaded head free-cut fiber can be fitted with a
protective tube.
Fitting
1 Insert the fiber cable into the protective tube from the
sleeve side.
)
2 Turn the fiber head to screw it on the inner thread of the
sleeve.
Mounting
• The maximum tightening torque should be as given below.
<Sleeve part>
<Threaded part>
Tightening torque:
0.58 Nm or less
Tightening torque:
0.58 Nm or less
Note: The fiber cable must be longer than the protective tube by 30 mm
1.181 in or more to connect it to the amplifier. Make sure to measure
the length required before cutting.

You can set the optimum sensitivity for
all cascaded units in one step by the
optical communications function.
Moreover, since the settings are also
copied to all units, the time involved is
considerably reduced.
Flashing function incorporated
When the leak detection fiber is
connected (F7 mode), if a leak is
detected, you will recognize which fiber
detects the leak at a single glance
because the emitter will start flashing.

Long life and stable operational settings
assure dependable performance
FX-301(P)-F incorporates our newly
developed ‘four-chemical emitting
element’, which eliminates such LED
performance deterioration. This new
element results in stable incident light
levels that can be maintained almost
indefinitely.
08/2005
Easy maintenance, as main and sub units are identical
Both main and sub units utilize the
same amplifier body. This feature
allows for easy mounting in the sideby-side configuration. The main and
sub unit functions are distinguished
only by the proper use of 3-core main
cable and the 1-core sub cable.
Moreover, by utilizing the same body
for both main and sub units, inventory
management and maintenance is
simplified.
FX-301-F
Wiring- and labor-saving design allows sideby-side configuration for up to sixteen units
Up to sixteen amplifiers can be connected in a side-byside configuration. As the sub cable contains only one
output line, a great amount of wiring and space can be
saved. Also, special ‘sliding’ connectors have been
provided for all main and sub cables, which can be
detached merely by releasing the lock and pulling directly
back, without having to slide the main amplifier body to
the side. Using this connector system, only a minimal
amount of space is required for regular maintenance.
Easy operation with MODE NAVI
Simple operation with easy access to advanced functions
MODE NAVI uses six indicators to
display the amplifier’s basic operations.
The current operating mode can be
confirmed at a glance, so even a first
time user can easily operate the
amplifier without becoming confused.
Each mode can be selected using the
large MODE key. Detailed functions
and settings can be chosen using the
large jog switch. Each setting mode
can be easily confirmed by viewing the
MODE indicator display.
The advanced features available in
each mode can be easily viewed and
smoothly selected from the digital
display.
Two switches with distinct functions
Only two switches, the large jog switch and the large MODE key, are required for operation. Depressing the large MODE key
sets the ‘mode selection’ and ‘mode cancel’ functions. The large jog switch is used to select from the detailed functions
available within each mode, as well as to change numerical values after the mode has been chosen. The use of only two
switches makes for very simple operations and easy maintenance.

PRECAUTIONS FOR PROPER USE
This product is not a safety sensor. Its use is not
intended or designed to protect life and prevent body
injury or property damage from dangerous parts of
machinery. It is a normal object detection sensor.
Mounting
How to mount the amplifier
1 Fit the rear part of the mounting
section of the amplifier on a 35 mm
1.378 in width DIN rail.
2 Press down the front part of the
mounting section of the amplifier on
the 35 mm 1.378 in width DIN rail.
How to remove the amplifier
1 Push the amplifier forward.
2 Lift up the front part of the amplifier
to remove it.
Note: Take care that if the front part is lifted
up without pushing the amplifier
forward, the hook on the rear portion
of the mounting section is likely to
break.
How to connect the fiber cables
• Make sure to fit the fiber attachment (FX-AT4), enclosed with
the fiber, to the fibers.
Please refer to the instruction manual of the fiber attachment for
the fitting method.
1 Snap the fiber lock lever down.
2 Insert the fiber cables slowly into
the inlets until they stop. (Note)
3 Return the fiber lock lever to the
original position, till it stops.
Note: In case the fiber cables are not
inserted to a position where they stop,
the sensing becomes unstable.
Connection
• Make sure that the power supply is off while connecting or
disconnecting the quick-connection cable.
Connection method
1 Holding the connector of the quickconnection cable, align its projection with the groove at the top
portion of the amplifier connector.
2 Insert the connector till a click is
felt.
Disconnection method
1 Pressing the projection at the top of
the quick-connection cable connector, pull out the connector.
Cascading amplifiers
• Make sure that the power supply is off while cascading or
removing the amplifiers.
• Make sure to check the allowable ambient temperature, as it
depends on the number of amplifiers connected in cascade.
• In case two, or more, amplifiers are connected in cascade, make
sure to mount them on a DIN rail.
• When connecting in cascade, mount the amplifiers close to each
other, fitting them between the optional end plates (MS-DIN-E)
mounted at the two ends.
• When the amplifiers move on the DIN rail depending on the
attaching condition, fitting them between the optional end plates
(MS-DIN-E) mounted at the two ends.
• Up to maximum 15 amplifiers can be added (total 16 amplifiers
connected in cascade.)
• When connecting more than two amplifiers in cascade, use the
sub cable (CN-71-C) as the quick-connection cable for the
second amplifier onwards.
• Since the model setting gets changed if collective teaching is
done for the amplifiers in Leak setting (F7 mode) and in Liquid
setting (F9 mode) mounted in cascade, note that collective
teaching should not be done for amplifiers with different model
settings mounted in cascade.
• Since the communication function of this amplifier and that of
the fiber sensor FX-301/311 series is different, if these models
are mounted in cascade, do not use the communication
function.
• In case of cascading, wait for 10 minutes, or more, to use the
teaching function after the power is switched on.
Cascading method
1 Mount the amplifiers, one by one,
on the 35 mm 1.378 in width DIN
rail.
(For details, refer to ‘Mounting’.)
2 Slide the sub units next to each
other, and connect the quickconnection cables.
3 Mount the optional end plates
(MS-DIN-E) at both the ends to
hold the amplifiers between their
flat sides.
4 Tighten the screws to fix the end
plates (MS-DIN-E).
Dismantling method
1 Loosen the screws of the end
plates (MS-DIN-E).
2 Remove the end plates (MS-DIN-E).
3 Slide the sub units and remove
them one by one.
(For details, refer to ‘Mounting’.)
Note: Take care that if the connector is
pulled out without pressing the
projection, the projection may break.
Do not use a quick-connection cable
whose projection has broken.
Further, do not pull by holding the
cable, as this can cause a cablebreak.

function.
For the selection method of Leak (F7) mode / Liquid (F9) mode,
refer to ‘Individual teaching mode’ on p.603 or ‘Collective
teaching mode’ on p.604.
• Make sure that the power supply is off while wiring.
• Verify that the supply voltage variation is within the rating.
• Take care that if a voltage exceeding the rated range is applied, or
if an AC power supply is directly connected, the sensor may get
burnt or damaged.
• In case noise generating equipment (switching regulator, inverter
motor, etc.) is used in the vicinity of this product, connect the
frame ground (F.G.) terminal of the equipment to an actual
ground.
• If power is supplied from a commercial switching regulator, ensure
that the frame ground (F.G.) terminal of the power supply is
connected to an actual ground.
• Make sure to use an isolation transformer for the DC power
supply. If an auto-transformer (single winding transformer) is used,
this product or the power supply may get damaged.
• In case a surge is generated in the used power supply, connect a
surge absorber to the supply and absorb the surge.
• Take care that short-circuit or wrong wiring of the load may burn
or damage the sensor.
• Do not run the wires together with high-voltage lines or power
lines or put them in the same raceway. This can cause
malfunction due to induction.
• Make sure to use the optional quick-connection cable for the
connection of the amplifier. Extension up to total 100 m 328.084 ft
is possible with 0.3 mm2, or more, cable. However, in order to
reduce noise, make the wiring as short as possible.

• Avoid dust, dirt, and steam.
• When the fiber head gets dusty or dirty etc. the sensitivity
deteriorates. To keep stable detection, wipe the fiber head to
remove dust or dir t etc. and carry out sensitivity teaching
periodically.
• This sensor is suitable for indoor use only.
• Take care that the product does not come in direct contact with
water, oil, grease, or organic solvents, such as, thinner, etc.
• This sensor cannot be used in an environment containing
inflammable or explosive gases.
• Never disassemble or modify the sensor.
• When an error is displayed, remedy as follows.
Error indication
526
Cause
Remedy
Excessive current
flows due to a shortcircuit.
Switch off the power supply
and check the load.
The teaching is abnormal.
Check the installation condition
of the fiber, or whether the
fiber has come out, and then
do teaching again.
Press MODE key to cancel
‘
’. After the cancellation,
the sensor operates at the set
value conditions before the
error. However, in case the
sensitivity selection function
has been set to the automatic
sensitivity setting (
), the
sensor operates at optimum
sensitivity.
The communication is
abnormal.
Check if the amplifiers
mounted in cascade are
disconnected. After the
confirmation, do the teaching
again.

Industry first! Light-emitting amount selection function
Industry’s largest display 9999
If the light-receiving level becomes saturated during close-range sensing or when
sensing transparent or ultra-small objects, you can adjust the light-emitting amount
of the sensor to stabilize sensing without needing to change the response time.
Sensing that previously required the response time or fibers to be changed can now
be set much more easily using this function.
Industry’s largest display with 4 digits (9999). With a greater difference in digit value
than previous models, threshold values can be set in units of 1 digit up to maximum
9999. Threshold setting can now be done more easily and accurately.

Two independent output channels are provided, so that one sensor can be used for
control tasks that previously required two sensors. In addition, the second output
channel can be used for simple self-diagnosis and alarm output, so that ease of
maintenance is improved.

High-speed response that is about twice as fast as before has been achieved. Even
small objects moving at high speeds can be sensed. In addition, interference
between two units is prevented in high-speed mode (H-SP).

● Stable sensing comparison
Light emitting amount
In addition to a ‘four-chemical emitting element’
which suppresses changes in the light-emitting
element over time so that a stable level of light
emission can be maintained over long periods, a
new ‘Auto Power Control (APC) circuit’ has also
been adopted. Because fluctuations over short
periods of time have also been suppressed,
stable sensing is possible very quickly once the
power is turned back on after setup changes.
