Handling Precautions
Introduction
This product is to inspect (discrimirate/measure) sensing objects.
Never use this product for prevention of accidents which damage a
WARNING human life or properties or for safety maintenance.
Connection
・The GP-X series is configured to satisfy the specification with the
combination of the sensor head and the controller. Use the sensor head
and controller in combination without fail; with other combinations, not only
may the specifications may not be satisfied but also failure may result.
・Turn the controller off before mounting or removing the sensor head and
controller.
・Note that the cables will be damaged if they are pulled.
Power Supply
・Wait 15 minutes (or 20 minutes with GP-X3S and GP-X5S) after the power
is turned on before operation is started. There may be a variation in the
measurements immediately after power-on because the power circuit is not
stable.
・There is a muting time of about two seconds after the power is turned on.
Take care that wrong wiring may damage the sensor.
・Verify that the supply voltage variation is within the rating.
・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.
Wiring
・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 that the power supply is off while wiring.
・The analog voltage output is incorporated with a short circuit protection
circuit. Do not connect it directly to a power supply or a capacitive load.
・Be careful to avoid statically charging connectors during wiring work. A
failure may result.
・Use the exclusive extension cable for cable extension of the sensor head.
(Overall length: 10m)
2
Environment
・Take care that the sensor does not come in direct contact with water, oil,
grease, or organic solvents, such as, thinner, etc.
・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 stress is not directly applied to the cable joint.
・This sensor is for indoor use only.
Compatibility
・In case the sensor head is broken, the sensor head replacement is
possible with same model.
(However, entering a characteristics code (ID code) and calibration are
required)
Intended Products for CE Marking
・The models listed under 'Chapter 8 Specifications and Dimensions' come
with CE Marking. As for all other models, please contact our office.
Operating Conditions for Compliance with CE
・This is a CE conformity product complying with EMC Directive. The
harmonized standard with regard to immunity that applies to this product is
EN 61000-6-2 (Note) and the following conditions must be met to conform
to that standard.
Conditions
・The controller must be connected within 10m of the power supply.
・The Signal cable connected to the controller must be shorter than 30m.
・A ferrite clamp must be mounted within 10mm of the base of the single
connector of the cable (GP-XBCC3) for the BCD output unit.

Chapter 2
The simple mean of detected values in the period designated with trigger inputs is held.
For the trigger input, the external trigger of timing input, internal trigger with
designation of the trigger level, or cyclic trigger with designation of a period
can be used.
Holding measurement begins with the power on or immediately after reset
input is turned on.
The analog voltage output is held at 0V after the start of holding measurement until the first measurement is finished.
With the external trigger setting, the mean of the interval from timing input to
the next timing input is obtained. With a reset input, sampled data is deleted.
For the usage of each trigger input, refer to section "2.3.2 Trigger Input" on
page 38.
With the internal trigger setting, the mean is calculated and output with each
trigger while deleting the sum of internal sampling data.
After the end of the first measurement until the second measurement is finished, the result of the first measurement is held and output.
After the end of the second measurement, the result of the second measurement is held and output.
This cycle is repeated.
The output judgment is made as to the hold value.
2.3.2 Trigger Input
When various holding measurement functions are used, the external trigger
given at the external terminal (timing input) and internal trigger can be used
to take measurements at various timings.
In addition, trigger delay and sampling time can be entered and the sampling
period can be adjusted.

4.7 Interference Prevention Setting
Connect the interference prevention output (terminal No. 7) at the external
terminal and the interference prevention input (terminal No. 16) to switch the
detection action alternately to prevent mutual interference from occurring.
Because the detection action switching signal is automatically generated,
there is no need to supply pulse signals for switching the action.
Designate one controller as a master, while designating the others as slaves
to validate interference prevention.
To mount sensor heads close together, perform three-point calibra

5.3.1 Overview of Controller Communication Unit
Using the controller communication unit (GP-XCOM) (optional) and link
cable for controller communication unit (SL-F150/F250/F1000) (optional),
data communication among multiple controllers becomes possible, and
calculation between two units, setting data transfer, multiple settings via RS232C can be used.
Up to eight controllers can be connected. Values detected at two arbitrary
Give the address setting at each controller.
Turn the terminator switch on the GP-XCOM controller located at the end of
the network.
*Note that calculation is disabled if the same address is given to two or more
controllers.
When GP-XCOM is used to link controllers to calculate, the calculation
sampling period varies according to the number of connected units. The
sampling period is approx. 800㱘s if eight units are connected.
The sampling period may vary according to the quality of the communication
signals.
Take care of the following when using GP-XCOM.
1) Calculation between two units can be made only in the manual mode for
normal measurement. If holding measurement is selected, calculation is
disabled. As well, a trigger input setting disables calculation. In summary,
check the following setting items.

units can be calculated, and judgment is issued for the result of the
calculation.
Using commands in communication via RS-232C, entry of conditions to
connected controllers or data loading can be easily made.
Through combinations with optional intelligent monitor software (GP-XAiM)
(optional), data can be analyzed through various data entry and data
buffering.
Each controller of the connected network must be given an address.
2) The sampling frequency of the calculation
conducted between two units varies according to the total number of units connected in
the network.
3) As an analog voltage output, the voltage
detected at one unit is output, instead of a
value calculated for the two units.

1: Use key operation on the controller to assign an address to the controller. The default
address is "0". Address assignment is necessary to configure a network. For details,
refer to section "5.3.2 Connection of Controller Communication Unit and Address
Setting" on page 104.
2: To set three-point calibration data after using a data-writing command for each point,
send an enactment command without fail.
3: The previous mean validity setting is only valid if the press BDC detection mode
is selected as an application mode. If another variation of the application mode is
selected, an error is displayed.
4: The interference prevention function becomes valid when interference I/O cables are
connected at the external input terminals between controllers.
5: If the detection range is exceeded even though the setting is valid as a command
instruction character string, error "20" is sent back.
6: Memory switching cannot be performed unless "panel" is selected for the memory
switching method. If "external input" is selected, error "20" is sent back.
Chapter 6
7: The "system reset" command is to restart the controller program. (The sensor goes
into
the same state as restarting up state.
8: After initialization of settings, the sensor displays the detection state since it is
automatically reset. The sensor having the 1.10 or later version software does not
require reset of the power supply.
Initialization using an RS-232C command does not initialize the communication
conditions and the controller address.
9: Data buffering
With data buffering, sample data collected in the GP-X series at high speed temporarily
accumulates in the controller in reference to trigger conditions and, upon completion of
accumulation, the data is loaded via RS-232C communication. About 120,000 points of
data can be accumulated. (Equivalent to about 3 sec. at a sampling frequency of 25㱘s)
Use optional intelligent monitor software (GP-XAiM) to enter data buffering settings and
perform data collection easily. For the usage of various commands and details of the
intelligent monitor software (GP-XAiM), contact us.

6.3 Intelligent Monitor Software (GP-XAiM) (Optional)
With the optional intelligent monitor software (GP-XAiM), the measurement
data can be easily analyzed or saved at your PC while conditions can be
entered, saved or loaded.
Use these features together with the data buffering function of the controller
to acquire ready-to-analyze data assuredly.
For details, contact us.
To use the intelligent monitor software (GP-XAiM) correctly
Preparation for operation of GP-XAiM
Chapter 6
Before operating GP-XAiM, check the following.
[1] In the case of operation of a network with linked controller
communication units (GP-XCOM)
(1) Set the terminator switch of each GP-XCOM correctly.
(2) Use "Auto" for address assignment of GP-XCOM.
If "Auto" is not used, addresses may not be recognized correctly.
[2] Preparation necessary after startup of GP-XAiM before online
operation is started
(1) Enter the same RS-232C communication settings of the PC as
those of the controller.
(2) For details, refer to "help" of GP-XAiM.
Approximate time for loading buffered data
To buffer data using GP-XAiM, the data acquisition interval varies
according to the relationship between the data size to be acquired and the
transmission speed of RS-232C. When buffering, refer to the relationship
shown below as a measure.
The initial setting of the transmission speed of the controller is 19,200
bps. To perform buffering, change to a faster transmission speed.
