Question

How long can the cable for an Ultrasonic Displacement Sensor or Ultrasonic Sensor be extended?

Answer

1. E4PA Series

Power/output cable (labeled as 2 and 3 below) must not be any longer than 10 m.
Use a cable with conductor cross-section of at least 0.3 mm2.
A 10-m cable with connectors is also available.

For a straight connector, use the XS2F-D421-J80-A

For an L-shaped connector, use the XS2F-D422-J80-A

2. E4DA Series

The cable between the Sensor and Amplifier Unit (labeled as 1 below) must not be any longer than 10 m (combined with the power/output cable (labeled as 2 and 3 below)).

Use a power/output cable with conductor cross-section of at least 0.3 mm2.

A 5-m extension cable to connect the Sensor and Amplifier Unit is also available.

E49-DD5

3. E4B-series

The power/output cable (labeled as 2 and 3 below) must not be any longer than 100 m.
Use a cable with conductor cross section of at least 0.3 mm2.

4. E4C Series and E4R Series

The cable between the Sensor and the Amplifier Unit (labeled as 1 below) must not be any longer than 20 m, and the power/output cable (labeled as 2 and 3 below) must be 100 m max.

Use a power/output cable (labeled as 2 and 3 below) with conductor cross-section of at least 0.3 mm2.

(Use a 6-mm-diameter (UL 20276 (7/0.25 dia.) shielded 2-conductor cable for the E4C-TS50S.)
For the E4R, use an 11/0.16-dia. parallel 1-conductor shielded cable.
