The D2RF series dual-digital display fiber amplifiers are designed with an advanced user-friendly programming format offering six teaching modes selected based on application requirements. Some of those teaching modes are automatic and used for quick setup when the equipment is operating. A zone-teaching mode creates a selectable high/low window that can be used for sorting parts or detecting objects on a vibrating conveyor. A glass-teaching mode is designed for detecting transparent film, glass and PET bottles. Two 4-digit displays allow for simple verification of the light-received level and threshold level while the 2-digit displays aid in setting up and programming the fiber amplifier. The amplifiers are available in two output configurations: Two independently settable digital; or one digital and analog of 4 to 20 mA, and they feature digital outputs that can be set to 60 micron/sec response for high-speed applications.
