Characteristics

  • Range of detection
    The range of detection is the distance from the point where the output changes to "L"
    after a pachinko ball enters from the IN 
    side, to the point where "L" changes to "H".
    ST-MDS-H12D_201222A_EN-2.jpg
  • Hysteresis 
    The hysteresis is the distance from the point where the output changes to "L"
    after a pachinko ball enters from the IN side, 
    to the point where "L" changes to "H" when the ball moves in the opposite direction.

Usage Precautions

Influence of Surrounding Metal

Do not install metal within 15 mm from the proximity switch detection surface and back side, and within 5 mm from its lateral sides. Otherwise, the detection distance may increase and malfunction may occur.

Mutual Interference

If you use two or more of the same product, separate them at least by the distances shown in the figure bellow, 
or use standard products and products with a different frequency alternately to prevent interference.

Precautions During Use

  • Ensure to use the sensor after thorough prior evaluations including the operation check, performance check, and reliability check with the sensor incorporated in your product.
  • Be sure to contact us first if the product is being considered for use in an application which requires extremely high reliability, where its breakage, malfunction, or operation can be reasonably expected to be, directly or indirectly, a significant threat to human life, or can cause injury, or damage to property, including, but not limited to medical equipment, automobiles, aerospace vehicle instruments, nuclear power control equipment or other equipment or instruments. In normal use, be sure to provide safety measures to avoid secondary disasters to ensure the safe operation of the entire system.
  • Avoid use and/or storage of the product in a place where it can be exposed to the following; chemical solutions and corrosive gas; abrupt temperature changes; direct sunlight; vibration or shock. Dew condensation or freezing may affect the product performance.

Other

  • Please note that this proximity sensor can detect steel pachinko balls, but not SUS pachinko balls.
    Contact us for detection of SUS pachinko balls.
  • See proximity sensor general usage precautions for other precautions.
