Ultra High-Accuracy Laser Displacement SensorsCDX Series


World’s No. 1 Linearity

  • Developed image sensor: ATMOS
  • Direct Ethernet connection
  • Equipped with a Web Server
CDX Series

Direct Network Connections are Possible without
Use of a Controller

  • New

    Direct Ethernet connection

    Because an Ethernet serial interface is built-in to the sensor head, connection to a network is possible without use of a controller.
    Not only can the cost of a controller be eliminated, but any worries about securing space for controller installation can also be forgotten.

    ■ No controller required. Simply add new sensors
    to the hub.

    ■ Operation is possible by connecting directly to
    a PC LAN port

    ■ Of course, connection to a PLC Ethernet port
    is also possible

Equipped with a Web Server

  • New

    Setup software is unnecessary

    The CDX series features a new Web server. Using a web browser on the computer connected to the same network, browsing and controlling measured values and setup contents are possible.
    Use is possible without need for a dedicated computer software.

Main functions

  • ■ Distance monitor

    Simultaneous display for 4 CHs

    With the CDX series, judgment settings can be configured for channels 1 to 4. The measured values for each channel can be displayed at once on a graph, allowing for simple comparison of measurement data. Moreover, monitoring of speed and thickness of transparent objects in addition to displacement is possible simultaneously.

  • ■ Storage

    No data logger required

    Measured values for up to 100,000 points can be stored. By operating using a browser, data can be viewed and CSV files can be downloaded.

  • ■ Light distribution

    Masking of unnecessary areas

    By monitoring receiving light waveforms, receiving light levels and mounting angle can be confirmed. Thanks to a newly developed mask function, even if there are unnecessary objects or ambient light in the measurement range, those can be masked to enable measurements to be performed free of influence.

Ethernet connection with Mitsubishi Electric PLC

  • The CDX sensor can be easily connected with Mitsubishi Electric PLC, iQ-R Series via Ethernet port on CPU or R Series via Ethernet module.
    Simply add the communication programs provided by OPTEX FA on a control program on GX Works engineering software to establish communication between the sensor and PLC.
