Detection based on “light”
Features and advantages of fibre optic sensors
A flexible optical fibre enables easy installation in limited spaces such as a space between machines.
Detection of extremely small targets
The extremely compact sensor head allows for easy detection of extremely small targets.
Excellent environmental resistance
Since no electric current flows through the optical fibre cable, the sensor is unaffected by electrical noise. The heat-resistant type fibre unit enables detection in high temperature environments.
KEYENCE’s FS-N Series of fibreoptic amplifier allows connection of more than 100 types of special fibre units. It has various features to improve stability, such as the automatic maintenance function which automatically compensates for dust and dirt build up.
