• The lens has a fixed focal point. The actual detection range and focal point vary from lens to lens, so adjust the
distance to the measurement target after replacing the lens or camera.
• The camera mounting distance listed in the following tables is an approximate value. Mount the Camera so that
the distance to the measurement target can be adjusted easily.
• If the object size and detection range are incompatible, use a combination of a camera (without lighting), standard
CCTV lens and light source.

The X axis of the optical chart shows detection range L (mm), and the Y axis shows the camera distance A
(mm). The curves on the optical chart show the relationship between the detection range and camera distance
for each CCTV lens. The values are significantly different for each lens, so double-check the model of the lens
before using the graph. The “t” values indicate the lengths of the Extension Tubes. The value “t0” shows the
case where an Extension Tube is not required and the value “t5.0” shows the case where a 5-mm Extension
Tube is used.

Troubleshooting
Clear Images Cannot be Obtained
Measurement sometimes cannot be performed successfully (e.g. measurement image is dark or contrast is
low) depending on the characteristics of the measurement target. Sharp images can be obtained by applying
filtering, or performing correction and adjustment to remedy the trouble.
Reference
Poor lighting
The recipe method light control settings can be used. You can set the lighting p.91
just by selecting the image that meets your specific requirements from the
thumbnails of images automatically taken under different lighting patterns.
Low contrast
You can apply filters, such as "Sharpen", to the image to enhance the bound- p.86
aries between shadow and highlight areas.
Uneven image
• You can apply filters, such as "Smooth", to the image to smooth out p.86, p.116
unevenness in the image.
• White parts of the image can be corrected to be reproduced appropriately
by adjusting the white balance.
Dark image
You can raise the camera's sensitivity or lengthen the shutter time to make the p.88, p.91
image brighter.
BASIC OPERATIONS
Remedy

Trouble
Measurement Target Cannot be Measured Accurately
Due to Movement
When the measurement target is moving (e.g. its position or orientation are not fixed), it moves out of the
preset measurement region, which prevents accurate measurement. The ZFX-C is provided with a "position
shift correction function" that corrects the position shift of measurement regions such as this before performing
measurement. The position shift correction function enables measurement targets whose position or
orientation is not fixed to be measured accurately.
Position Correction p.98
When setting the measurement

The position of the measurement
target is measured after the measurement region is shifted by the
amount of position shift.

Guidelines for setting detection size and detection interval
• Detection size
Determine the detection size roughly according to the size of the defect to be detected.
Setting a smaller detection size results in stronger detection sensitivity, while setting a larger detection size results
in weaker detection sensitivity.

(2)
Detection size

Sensitivity
Processing time

When a larger detection size is set, the difference with elements that are not defects decreases as the density of
elements other than defects also is included in the calculation at (2). In other words, the more background that is
included in the detection area, the weaker the detection sensitivity becomes.
SETTING THE MEASUREMENT CONDITIONS
• Detection interval
Determine the detection interval roughly according to the size of the defect and the detection size.
The larger the detection interval that is set, the shorter the processing time becomes.
When the detection area is greater than the defect, set a smaller detection interval.
When the defect is greater than the detection area, set a slightly larger detection interval.
When a small detection interval is set, elements overlapping the edge of the defect also are included in the comparison, and so the defect value decreases, which results in less stable detection of the defect.

Calibration
This function converts measurement values from pixels to actual dimensions for output. By setting the
relationship between camera coordinates and actual coordinates, measurement results expressed in pixels
can be converted to actual dimensions and output.
Note
To enable the calibration function, set [Calibration] in the Detail setup screen for each measurement item to [ON].
When [Calibration] is still [OFF] (default value), measurement values are output using camera coordinates and not
the actual dimensions.
Pixel units can be converted to actual dimensions and output.

Registering Images
This function is for making a series of settings using the same image. Two images can be registered in the
Controller's internal memory, and called up so that they can be used for use in setup.
The following three types of images can be registered:
• Live images from a camera connected to the Controller
• Measurement images saved on the Controller
• Images saved on SD card
The following operation is not required when making setups using live images. Also, registered image data is
cleared when the Controller is turned OFF. To retain image data, save them on SD card.

Position Correction
This function is used when the position or orientation of the measurement target is not fixed. If you use this
function, the amount of the shift from the reference position is calculated, and the position of the measurement
region is corrected before measurement is performed.
Important
After using an image for setting position correction, save the image to SD card.
Registering Images p.97
When adjusting by position correction, use a saved image. If you use an image different from the one that was initially
set to perform adjustments, position correction might not be set correctly.
To perform adjustments with a different image, repeat the settings for measurement items, too.

Note
• This section describes guidelines for selecting position correction items. The setup parameters for each item are
the same as those for the measurement items. For details, see those items.
• Normally, a single position correction is sufficient. However, to ensure reliable correction of positions or to shorten
the processing time, correct the position in 2 stages. [Position0] is the correction performed for the 1st position
correction, and [Position1] is the correction performed for the 2nd position correction.
The direction in which shift can be corrected automatically turns [ON] according to the preset position
correction method. Change the setting for directions to exclude from position correction to [OFF].

Bank Settings
The ZFX-C can hold up to 32 sets of settings, which are called a "bank," in internal memory. Bank 0 is
displayed as the default bank when the Controller is turned ON. Banks 1 to 31 are also provided in addition to
this. The device setup can be changed easily by just switching banks if banks are registered to suit specific
conditions and content.
Note
The number of banks can be increased to 1024 by attaching an SD card (capacity: 256MB). 32 banks are handled
as a single group, and up to 32 groups can be set. In other words, this means that 32 bank groups are the same as
having set 1024 banks.
In this case, bank group 0 is saved on the Controller's internal flash memory, and bank groups 1 to 31 are saved on
the attached SD card.
When an SD card is not used, only bank group 0 is used.

How to fully utilize the profile function
• You can check whether or not light is illuminating the measurement target evenly.
If the graph lines are inclined even though the measurement target illuminated as a uniform
color on screen, you can judge that lighting is uneven.

Measurement (Handshaking OFF)
When handshaking is set to OFF, the ZFX-C outputs measurement results to the external device without
synchronizing communications. Monitor the ZFX-C’s GATE signal from the external device and read the
measurement results at the external device while the ZFX-C’s GATE signal is ON.

measurement results are output. When the Controller becomes filled up with this non-output data, data can no longer accumulate in the Controller. When this happens, output of
non-output data continues, and the next measurement is no longer possible until queued
data has finished accumulating.

Explanation of operation
(1) When the measurement trigger (TRIG signal) is input from the external device, measurement is executed
once synchronized with the rising edge of the TRIG signal (OFF -> ON).
(2) The GATE signal is used to control the timing at which the external device captures measurement results.
Set the Gate ON delay (T3) and Gate ON time (T4) so that T3+T4<T5.
(3) When parallel output is set to "ON" as the data output destination, data is output for the number of times in
the expression set at "Calculation (data)" (maximum 32 times). When parallel output is OFF, data is not
output.
(4) When parallel output is set to "ON" as the judgment output destination, judgment is output for the number
of times in the expression set at "Calculation (judgment)" (maximum twice). When parallel output is OFF,
judgment is not output.
(5) The overall judgment is output. Overall judgment is NG if there is even one NG for the preset measurement
items and judgment results in the expression. In the case of level output, the ON/OFF status of the OR
signal does not change until the next output as shown in this example.
(6) When the timing for turning the ENABLE signal ON is set to "end of image input", a delay occurs until
output is started after the ENABLE signal turns ON as measurement is also executed after the ENABLE
signal turns ON. Do not input the next trigger until measurement is completed.

T7:
Total output time
This time is equivalent to "output cycle (T6) x number of output data items". Set the total
output time to be shorter than the measurement time (T2). When the total output time is
longer than T2, non-output data accumulates in the Controller as the next measurement
is executed before measurement results are output. When the Controller becomes filled
up with this non-output data, data can no longer accumulate in the Controller. When this
happens, output of non-output data continues, and the next measurement is no longer
possible until queued data has finished accumulating.
Explanation of operation
(1)Continuous measurement is started synchronized with the rising edge of the DI8 signal (OFF → ON).
6
(2)When the timing for turning the ENABLE signal ON is set to "end of image input", a delay occurs until output
is started as measurement is also executed after the ENABLE signal turns ON. The timing of measurement
result output (OR, DO) does not change even if the ENABLE signal ON timing is set to "end of image input"
or "display end".
PARALLEL INTERFACE
(3)The GATE signal is used to control the timing at which the external device captures measurement results.
Set the Gate ON delay (T4) and Gate ON time (T5) so that T4+T5<T6.
(4)The overall judgment is output. Overall judgment is NG if there is even one NG for the preset measurement
regions and judgment results in the expression. In the case of level output, the ON/OFF status of the OR
signal does not change until the next output as shown in this example.
(5)When parallel output is set to "ON" as the data output destination, data is output for the number of times in
the expression set at "Calculation (data)" (maximum 32 times). When parallel output is OFF, data is not
output.
(6)When parallel output is set to "ON" as the judgment output destination, judgment is output for the number of
times in the expression set at "Calculation (judgment)" (maximum twice). When parallel output is OFF,
judgment is not output.
(7)If DI0 to DI7 are in the continuous measurement command execution status and DI8 is ON when
measurement processing ends, the next measurement is executed. The next measurement is also
executed after display processing is executed when the timing that the ENABLE signal turns ON is set to
"display end." When the timing is set to other than "display end," the next measurement is executed as
soon as measurement ends.

This is the time-out time for the following operations.
• Measurement end → DSA signal ON
• GATE signal ON → DSA signal OFF
• GATE signal OFF → DSA signal ON
The default time-out time is 10 s. This time can be changed.
Explanation of operation
(1) When measurement ends, the ENABLE signal turns ON.
(2) The DSA signal turns ON by the external device requesting data transmission.
(3) When the DSA signal turns ON, the DO signal is output.
(4) When the DSA signal turns OFF, the GATE signal also turns OFF.
(5) A time-out error occurs if the DSA signal does not turn ON during the preset time-out time after measurement ends.
(6) A time-out error occurs if the DSA signal does not turn OFF during the preset time-out time after the GATE
signal turns ON.
(7) When multiple data items are being output for a single measurement, a time-out error occurs if the DSA
signal does not turn ON with the preset time-out time after the GATE signal turns OFF.

Definitions of Laser Classification
For Europe
Laser Product Classifications
EN
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.
7
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.

law of the jurisdiction of the home office of the Omron company from which

Certain Precautions on Specifications and Use
1. Suitability of Use. Omron Companies shall not be responsible for conformity
with any standards, codes or regulations which apply to the combination of the
Product in the Buyer’s application or use of the Product. At Buyer’s request,
Omron will provide applicable third party certification documents identifying
ratings and limitations of use which apply to the Product. This information by
itself is not sufficient for a complete determination of the suitability of the Product in combination with the end product, machine, system, or other application
or use. Buyer shall be solely responsible for determining appropriateness of
the particular Product with respect to Buyer’s application, product or system.
Buyer shall take application responsibility in all cases but the following is a
non-exhaustive list of applications for which particular attention must be given:
(i) Outdoor use, uses involving potential chemical contamination or electrical
interference, or conditions or uses not described in this document.
(ii) Use in consumer products or any use in significant quantities.
(iii) Energy control systems, combustion systems, railroad systems, aviation
systems, medical equipment, amusement machines, vehicles, safety equipment, and installations subject to separate industry or government regulations.
(iv) Systems, machines and equipment that could present a risk to life or property. Please know and observe all prohibitions of use applicable to this Product.
NEVER USE THE PRODUCT FOR AN APPLICATION INVOLVING SERIOUS
RISK TO LIFE OR PROPERTY OR IN LARGE QUANTITIES WITHOUT
ENSURING THAT THE SYSTEM AS A WHOLE HAS BEEN DESIGNED TO
2.

5.
ADDRESS THE RISKS, AND THAT THE OMRON’S PRODUCT IS PROPERLY RATED AND INSTALLED FOR THE INTENDED USE WITHIN THE
OVERALL EQUIPMENT OR SYSTEM.
Programmable Products. Omron Companies shall not be responsible for the
user’s programming of a programmable Product, or any consequence thereof.
Performance Data. Data presented in Omron Company websites, catalogs
and other materials is provided as a guide for the user in determining suitability and does not constitute a warranty. It may represent the result of Omron’s
test conditions, and the user must correlate it to actual application requirements. Actual performance is subject to the Omron’s Warranty and Limitations
of Liability.
Change in Specifications. Product specifications and accessories may be
changed at any time based on improvements and other reasons. It is our practice to change part numbers when published ratings or features are changed,
or when significant construction changes are made. However, some specifications of the Product may be changed without any notice. When in doubt, special part numbers may be assigned to fix or establish key specifications for
your application. Please consult with your Omron’s representative at any time
to confirm actual specifications of purchased Product.
Errors and Omissions. Information presented by Omron Companies has been
checked and is believed to be accurate; however, no responsibility is assumed
for clerical, typographical or proofreading errors or omissions.
