Question

What is an auxiliary output?

Answer

F3SN/F3SH Series Safety Light Curtains

The default setting of the output is the reverse signal of the control output. It is only an auxiliary output, so do not use it as a control output for a safety circuit.

For F3SN-A and F3SH Series, the output operation mode can be selected using F39-MC11 Setting Console.

Dark-ON output = Control output and its reverse signal (default setting)

Light-ON output = Synchronized with the control output

Light diagnosis output

Lockout output

Outermost-beam monitoring output

Specified-beam output

Blanking monitoring output (F3SN-A only)

F3SL Series Safety Light Curtain

A signal is output in sync with the control output. It is only an auxiliary output, so do not use it as a control output for a safety circuit.
