Sales considerations;

The new F3SG-R range from Omron combine torsion-resistant construction to guarantee easy alignment with a novel troubleshooting function based on QR codes.

To suit the needs of widest possible range of users, the new light curtains are available in two versions, the easy F3SG-RE for simple on/off detection applications and the versatile F3SG-RA can be cascaded up to three sets and offers a wide range of additional features.These include a choice of versatile muting modes, floating and fixed blanking, reduced resolution, and a pre-reset function.


Robust IP67 housing design

F3SG light curtains have an IP67 ingress protection rating and are built to withstand washdown and dusty environments. They feature exceptionally rigid construction that eliminates problems of top-to-bottom twisting and makes setup up fast and straightforward. As a further aid, they incorporate optical synchronisation, eliminating the need for wiring between the emitter and detector.
 

Easy troubleshooting

Should problems ever occur with these innovative products, users simply scan a QR code sticker that can be applied to the machine with a smart phone or tablet, and they are directed to a web page that provides detailed troubleshooting guidance. This information is available in eight languages.

Bluetooth interface simplifies connectivity

The F3SG provides a Bluetooth interface for programming and monitoring of the light curtain. This eliminates the need for programming cables which can be easily lost or misplaced. The Bluetooth adapter is also available as an integral part of the optional muting lamp, providing an innovative dual purpose accessory solution. The interface is password protected and linked to a unique MAC address eliminating the possibility of unwanted setting changes or unintended programming of another light curtain in range.

Configuration is simple and flexible

The F3SG can be configured in one of two ways, either via dip switches located directly on the light curtain, for fast and simplified configuration, or via the SD Manager software, which whilst intuitive to use, provides advanced configuration for demanding applications. In addition, you can analyse any stops due to muting errors using the data stored in the F3SG, this will minimise unexpected machine downtime.

Flexible muting operations

Even the most demanding applications are catered for in the F3SG, with all standard L & T muting options available as well as a wide range of advanced functions including position detection mode, full and partial muting. A new dynamic muting mode is also available, which copes with varying height objects and automatically adjusts the muting range accordingly.

Cascading the F3SG can simplify your safety system

Up to three sets of F3SG-R can be series-connected. Cascade connection allows them to be used as one safety light curtain, requiring only one set to be wired to a controller and preventing mutual interference. If any one set of series-connected F3SG-R is blocked, both of the safety outputs turn OFF.

Advanced blanking modes

The F3SG-RA provides floating and fixed blanking functions. Setting of the number of beams can be configured by specifying the number of beams manually using the SD Manager 2 or in Dip-Switch mode by moving an interrupting object in the detection zone using the push switch to perform the teach-in task. This enables the F3SG to be used in even the most demanding of applications and even in combination with muting operations, providing complete flexibility.
