Usage precautions

Usage precautions

  • Influence of surrounding metal
    Do not install metal within 30 mm from the proximity switch detection surface and within 10 mm from the back side, and within 5 mm from its lateral sides. 
    Otherwise, the detection distance may increase and malfunction may occur.

  • Installation precautions
    Note that proximity sensors cannot be used if installed on metal surfaces.
MDS-5T-D_Installation_precautions.gif
  • Mutual interference
    When using two or more of the same product installed in parallel, use standard products and products with a different frequency alternately to prevent interference.
    When using standard products in combination with different frequency products, up to two products can be installed side by side.

  • The number of pachinko balls or medals coming continuously cannot be tallied up. To tally them up, use a Geneva stop to separate them.
  • When detecting pachinko balls or medals, avoid making them fall directly onto the switch detection surface. 
    (Strong impacts applied to the ferrite core inside the switch may damage it, decreasing its performance or causing a malfunction.)
  • Detection of medals may greatly vary depending on the medal material and coating. Therefore, it is recommended to use 70% of the detection distance actually measured with the medals used.
