The settings for the digital laser sensor LS-401(P) and the digital fiber sensor FX-301B/G/H(P) with bank functions can be changed using a switch or PLC signals & Panasonic FX-CH bank selection unit. It is possible to perform both load (read-out settings) and save (save settings) operations by designating the bank channel. This makes it much easier to reset sensors after a sensing object changes. Bank settings include response times, threshold values, output operation settings, timer settings, hysteresis, stability, digital display settings (incident light intensity / percentage / peak hold / bottom hold), digital display inversion and ECO mode. These can all be changed at once using external signals to correspond to a variety of different applications.
