Fiber optic amplifier has 10 microsecond response time
Banner Engineering’s DF-G2 fiber optic amplifier is designed to achieve a 10-microsecond response time with 5-microsecond repeatability.
Banner’s DF-G2 provides an easy-to-read dual digital display for highly visible signal level and threshold values. Featuring an intuitive interface, the sensor ensures simple set-up and programming through displays and switches and buttons, or via remote input teach wire. The DF-G2 also offers complete user control, providing manipulation of all operating parameters, including switch point threshold, light operate or dark operate, various output timing functions, electronic gain level and sensor response speed.
The six expert Teach and Set methods allows operators to achieve optimal gain and threshold selection for each application—particularly high-speed or low-contrast environments.
The DF-G2 features thermally stable electronics, which help minimize warm-up drift and enable multiple amplifiers to be mounted side-by-side, with no reduction in the ambient temperature limit. Inherent thermal stability is designed to reduce machine start-up time and eliminating production delays due to ambient temperature changes. The cross-talk avoidance algorithm allows two fiber optic assemblies to be mounted in close proximity, sensing different features of the same target.
