device may activate and prevent charging.
• Do not connect the Battery directly to a power supply or car cigarette lighter socket.
• Do not use the Touch Finder with any other type of battery.
• Turn OFF the power supply immediately if the Battery leaks or produces an odor. Electrolyte leaked from the
Battery may ignite, possibly causing smoke, rupture, or fire.
• If during usage, charging, or storage, the Battery produces an odor, heats, becomes discolored, becomes
misshapen, or exhibits any other unusual conditions, remove it and do not use it. Continuing to use such a
Battery may result in the Battery heating, smoking, rupturing, or igniting.
• If the Touch Finder (FQ-D31) will be installed permanently or semi-permanently, remove the Battery (FQBAT1). If the rated temperature is exceeded with the Battery inserted, the protective circuit may activate and
stop the Touch Finder.
4. AC Adapter
• Use an AC cable that is suitable for the power supply and power voltage you are using.
• Do not touch the power plug with a wet hand. Doing so may result in electrical shock.
• If you notice an abnormal condition, such as smoke, abnormal heating of the outer surface, or a strange
odor, immediately stop using the AC Adapter, turn OFF the power, and remove the power plug from the
outlet.
Consult your dealer, as it is dangerous to attempt to repair the AC Adapter yourself.
• If the AC Adapter is dropped or damaged, turn OFF the power, remove the power plug from the outlet, and
contact your dealer. There is a risk of fire if you continue using the AC Adapter.

Introduction
Introduction
1-1 FQ-series Vision Sensors
FQ-series Vision Sensors are real-color Vision Sensors with integrated processing. Once configured, they are
used stand-alone for quality inspection of presence, position, and other product characteristics. To set up or
monitor the sensors, either the touch screen based console 'Touch Finder' or a 'PC Tool' can be used.
Setup, Image Confirmation, and Logging Tools
Touch Finder
FQ Vision Sensor
Used to check images and set the judgement
parameters. It can also be used to save
measurement results and check status during
operation.
PC Tool
Includes the camera, lighting, measurement
processor, and I/O functions.
After the Sensor has been set up, it can be
operated alone to perform measurements
without the Touch Finder or PC Tool.
The same functions as those that are provided
by the Touch Finder can be performed from a
computer. The PC Tool is available free of
charge.
FQ-series Vision Sensors are available in two different models. The differences are given in the following table.

Preventing Chattering
• The Sensor is equipped with an anti-chattering function, but if the chattering is 100 µs or longer, a faulty input may
occur. (Input signals of 99 µs or shorter are ignored. Signals of 100 µs or longer are treated as input signals.)
• Use no-contact output devices (e.g., SSR or PLC transistor output) for the input signals. If contacts (e.g., relay) are
used, chattering may cause the trigger to be input again during execution of a measurement.

Important
The image becomes darker the smaller the exposure time. If the Sensor is used in a dark environment, make
sure that the darkness of the image does not cause the measurements to be unstable.
Improving the Image Quality of Metallic and other Shiny Surfaces
When objects with shiny surfaces are being measured, the lighting may be reflected off the surface and affect
the image.
To remove reflections, one of the following two functions can be used.
Function
Description
HDR (High Dynamic Range) If objects have contrasting light and dark areas, the dynamic range can be made wider to
improve the quality of the images.
Polarizing filter
Specular reflections can be eliminated from an image by attaching a polarizing filter to the
Sensor.
• Selection Tips
• When the measurement object is not moving
→ Use the HDR function.
• When the measurement object is moving
→ Use a polarizing filter.
HDR Function
The HDR function is used for objects that have a large difference between light and dark areas. For this kind of
object, clear images cannot be achieved with the standard brightness setting. The HDR function combines
several images of different brightnesses (exposure times) so that the resulting image has a lower degree of
contrast and can be measured stably for the desired characteristic.

Observe the following precautions.
• Use the HDR function only for objects that are not moving to avoid image blurring.
Several images are taken with different shutter speeds and combined. If the object moves while the image
is being taken, the image will become blurred.
• Images with different brightnesses are combined, so the resulting image will have a lower degree of contrast.

3-3 Adjusting the Object Position
If objects are moving, the position in the image of the characteristic that is to be measured will vary according
to the timing of the trigger signal. The FQ Vision Sensor offers two different ways to adjust this position
variation.
Function
Description
Reference
Position compensation
If the timing of the trigger is accurate, the FQ Vision Sensor can correct variations in the
position of the object for each measurement with the Position Compensation function.
p. 42
Trigger delay
A delay can be applied from when the trigger (the TRIG signal) is input until when the
image is input, to synchronize the timing of image input with the speed of the moving
objects.
p. 44
Position Compensation
The FQ Vision Sensor performs measurements in measurement regions that are set to a fixed shape and
position by the operator. A measurement is not performed properly if the object is not positioned inside this
measurement region (e.g., the result will be NG even if the object is OK). In machines in which the position of
the object varies for each image, stable measurements would be impossible. To cope this problem, the Position
Compensation function aligns the whole image so that the object to be measured is moved exactly to the
measurement region.
Reference position (as set by the operator)
The measurement object is properly within the measurement region.

3-4 Preventing Mutual Interference of Multiple Sensors
When the same trigger signal is input to multiple Sensors, the lighting from one Sensor may affect the
measurements of the other Sensors. This is called mutual interference. This kind of interference can be
prevented offsetting the image input timing of each Sensor from when the trigger signal is received.
Example:
A trigger (i.e., the TRIG signal) is input to Sensor 0 and Sensor 1 at the same time.

Unstable Search Results
Inclined Measurement Objects
Adjust the [Angle range] parameter to increase the range in which a search is made for the model.
The Search inspection item judges whether an image is OK or NG according to the correlation with a
previously registered image pattern. For this reason, if the object is at an angle, the correlation is reduced and
the image may be judged as NG. To achieve an OK judgement for the same image pattern even when the
object is at an angle, the rotation range must be widened.

5-1 Performing Test Measurements
After completing the settings in the [Image], [Inspect], and [In/Out] Tab Pages, move to the [Test] Tab Page.
The displayed image is measured automatically. This is called a test measurement. A test measurement is
used to verify that the settings that have been made will produce stable results and, if necessary, to fine-tune
the settings. An overall judgement of all inspection items can be performed.
Test measurements can be performed for through images (default) or saved images.

What Are Scenes?
With an FQ Vision Sensor, the inspection items that can be processed at the same time are registered as
scenes. A command input from an external device or a touch panel operation can be used to select a certain
scene.
If a scene is registered for each type of measurement object or inspection, the line process can be changed
simply by changing the scene when the measurement object or inspection changes.
Example:
Cap color
(Inspection item 0: Color Data)
Label detection
(Inspection item 1: Search)
These can be registered as
one scene.

7-4 Logging Measurement Data and Image Data
There are two ways to log data. Data can be temporarily saved in memory inside the Sensor (called recent
results logging) or large amounts of data can be saved in SD cards or other external media (called file logging).
The amounts of data that can be logged are given in the following table.
Logged data
Recent results logging
Measurement data (Measured val- 1,000 measurement values max.
ues and calculation results)
Image data (Measured values and
calculation results)
File logging
Up to the capacity of the external memory
20 images max.
Logging All Data (File Logging)
Large amounts of measurement and image data can be saved in files in external memory (SD cards or computer).

Note
Only the data for the Sensor that is currently being displayed will be logged even if more than one Sensor is connected.
If multiple sensors are displayed, or if the most recent NG sensor is displayed, only the results of the sensor that was
displayed before changing to the other sensor monitor screen will continue to be logged. Simultaneous logging of the
results of multiple sensors is not possible.

After removing the cause of the error, turn the ERROR signal OFF using one of the following methods.
Method 1: Input an error clear command from an external device such as a PLC.
Method 2: Input a measurement trigger again.
(For example, turn the TRIG signal ON during a one-shot measurement.)
The ERROR signal will turn OFF when measurement is executed correctly.
Note
This function can be used in Run Mode only.

Setting the Data to Output via Ethernet
Allocate the data to output via Ethernet according to the output method for the Ethernet as shown below.
• No-protocol Command/Response Method
When executing one-shot measurements and continuous measurements with commands (MEASURE or M,
MESAURE/C or M/C), set the data to output via Ethernet as a response.
• No-protocol Data Output
Set in advance the data to output via Ethernet after the measurements (32 max.).
Data That Can Be Output
Up to 32 data can be output (data 0 to data 31). The measurement data from position compensation and
inspection items that can be output and the results from the expression settings can be output. For data that
can be output, refer to the Measurement Data That Can Be Used for External Outputs and Calculations for
each inspection item.
Allocating Output Data
Allocate Ethernet output data to data 0 to 31. This section describes the setting procedure when the X
coordinate (Position X) of measurement 0.search is output as binary data to data 0.

9-2 Basic Troubleshooting
Problem
Measures to perform
Reference
The Sensor or Touch Finder will not start. Check the power supply capacity to see if it is sufficient.
---
The Sensor cannot be detected.
Check the Ethernet cable to see if it is connected correctly.
---
Check the Ethernet settings to see if they are correct between the
devices.
p. 33
Check if there are any Sensors that were not detected by the Sensor
connection check.
p. 180
Check the communications cable to see if it is disconnected.
---
Check the switching hubs to see if any of them are faulty. (If switching
hubs are used.)
---
The results display is not updated.
Updating the results display is slow.
Data is not logged properly.
Check to see if the TRIG signal is being correctly input to the Sensor.
p. 109
Check to see if the most recent NG result is being displayed.
p. 16
If other devices are connected to the same network as the Sensor, disconnect the other devices from the network and check the update
speed.
If the update speed returns to normal, check the specifications of the
disconnected devices and take suitable measures.
---
If there are power lines running in parallel with the Ethernet cable or if
there are inverters or other sources of noise near the communications
cable, separate the communications cable from them and check the
update speed.
Noise may be adversely affecting the communications response.
---
Check to see if the logging setting in the Sensor are correct.
p. 110
If logging to an SD card is not possible, check the available space on the p. 118
SD card and check to see if the SD card is write-protected.
The ERROR indicator lights.
Check the error history to see what error has occurred and take suitable p. 168
measures.
The image brightness does not stabilize. Turn ON the brightness correction mode.
When the Brightness Correction Mode is ON, the timing when images
are taken changes. Check that the images of the measured objects
taken when the Brightness Correction Mode is ON are appropriate.

For Europe

Class
Description
Class 1
Laser that are safe under reasonably foreseeable conditions of operation, including the use
of optical instruments for intrabeam viewing.
Class 1M
Laser emitting in the wavelength range from 302.5 nm to 4000 nm which are safe under
reasonably foreseeable conditions of operation, but may be hazardous if the user employs
optics within the beam.
Class 2
Laser that emit visible radiation in the wavelength range from 400 nm to 700 nm where eye
protection is normally afforded by aversion responses, including the blink reflex. This reaction may be expected to provide adequate protection under reasonably foreseeable conditions of operation including the use of optical instruments for intrabeam viewing.
Class 2M
Laser that emit visible radiation in the wavelength range from 400 nm to 700 nm where eye
protection is normally afforded by aversion responses, including the blink reflex. However,
viewing of the output may be more hazardous if the user employs optics within the beam.
Class 3R
Laser that emit in the wavelength range from 302.5 nm to 106 nm where direct intrabeam
viewing is potentially hazardous but the risk is lower than for Class 3B lasers, and fewer
manufacturing requirements and control measures for the user apply than for Class 3B
lasers. The accessible emission limit is within five times the AEL of Class 2 in the wavelength range from 400 nm to 700 nm and within five times the AEL of Class 1 for other
wavelengths.
Class 3B
Lasers that are normally hazardous when direct intrabeam exposure occurs (i.e. within the
NOHD). Viewing diffuse reflections is normally safe (see also note).
Class 4
Lasers which are also capable of producing hazardous diffuse reflections. They may cause
skin injuries and could also constitute a fire hazard. Their use requires extreme caution.
Note: Conditions for safe viewing of diffuse reflections for Class 3B visible lasers are: minimum viewing distance of
13 cm between screen and cornea and a maximum viewing time of 10 s. Other viewing conditions require a
comparison of the diffuse reflection exposure with the MPE.
