*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. For environments that require oil resistance, the upper limit of the ambient operating temperature range is 40°C.
