Accessories Instruction manual

*1. Use the Sensor within the range in which the setting indicator (green LED) is ON (except X2 Models).
*2. The response frequency is an average value.
       Measurement conditions are as follows: standard sensing object, a distance of twice the standard sensing object,
       and a set distance of half the sensing distance.
*3. The residual voltage is 5 V. Make sure that the device connected to the Sensor can withstand the residual voltage.

*1. The response frequency is an average value.
       Measurement conditions are as follows: standard sensing object, a distance of twice the standard sensing object,
       and a set distance of half the sensing distance.
*2. When using an M8 Model at an ambient temperature between 70 and 85°C, supply 10 to 30 VDC to the Sensor and
       make sure that the Sensor has a control output of 100 mA maximum.
