*2.When teaching with/without a workpiece, the best sensing method will be automatically selected (RGB ratio (C Mode)
     or light intensity determination (I Mode)). If color differences are not strong enough and RGB ratios would result in
     unstable detection, then light intensity determination (I Mode) will be selected. The detection mode can be set to C,
     I, or Black Mode.

*3. Input Specifications

Contact input
(relay or switch)
Non-contact input
(transistor)
NPN ON: Shorted to 0 V (sourcing current: 1 mA max.).
OFF: Open or shorted to Vcc.
ON: 1.5 V max. (sourcing current: 1 mA max.)
OFF: Vcc - 1.5 V to Vcc (leakage current: 0.1 mA max.)
PNP ON: Shorted to Vcc (sinking current: 3 mA max.).
OFF: Open or shorted to 0 V.
ON: Vcc - 1.5 V to Vcc (sinking current: 3 mA max.)
OFF: 1.5 V max. (leakage current: 0.1 mA max.)
       Refer to the Instruction Manual for the external input pulse width.
       A pulse width of 300 ms or longer is required to switch banks for the E3X-DAC[]B-S.
*4.Mutual interference prevention cannot be used in super-high-speed mode, and light intensity determination (I Mode)
      must be used. The response time will be 150 μs if an AND or OR is set for the control outputs.
*5. With light intensity determination (I Mode and Black Mode), the correlation is not displayed, but rather the light
      intensity is displayed.
*6. The allowable ambient operating temperature changes according to the number of Units that are linked. 2 Units:
      −25 to 55°C, 3 to 10 Units: −25 to 50°C, and 11 to 16 Units: −25 to 45°C
