          Fibre Unit

          FU series

          Fibre Sensor Head Units

          Hex-shaped Sensor heads for Easy Mounting, Space-saving with Unbreakable Fibre.

          Hex shaped fibre optic sensor head

          Hex-shaped Sensor Heads Advantages

          Easy mounting

          Secure the unit with a single nut. Your current, standard fibre unit can be replaced without additional preparation or modification.

          Space-saving, trouble-free

          All FU-TZ Series fibre units allow neat cable and requires less space for installation. This eliminates problems such as entangled cables.

          Unbreakable fibre

          This unbreakable fibre exits form the housing at 90°, like a periscope. This design requires far less space than conventional models. (Patent pending)

          The New Standard for Thrubeam Fibres

          [1] High power
          The built-in lens harnesses the high power of the amplifier.

          Built-in glass lens

          The built-in lens enables the FU-70TZ to harness the high power of the amplifier, thus allowing consistently stable detection even in harsh environments. The built-in lens also eliminates any concerns of the lens becoming loose due to vibration.

          [2] Enclosure Rating: IP67
          The resin-filled structure provides excellent protection against dirt and water.

          Protected against intrusion

          An epoxy resin fills the stainless steel heads (SUS303) of the FU-70TZ, protecting it against the intrusion of water or dirt. This resin-filled structure also helps the FU-70TZ achieve an IP67 enclosure rating.

          [3] Easy to install
          The hex-shape design allows for easier installation and also conserves space.

          The hex-shaped threaded heads makes installation even easier; since each head can be secured in place using just one nut. The hex-shape also allows the cable to exit the head at a 90 degree angle, effectively conserving space.

          [4] Bending radius: 1mm
          The use of multiple fibre cores allows the bending radius to get as low as 1 mm.

          By using multiple fibre cores, the FU-70TZ can reach a bend radius of 1 mm, while still maintaining stable detection.
