March 30, 2012 - Suited for high-speed measurement applications, UQ1 Series enables automatic communications between Optex FA CD Series Displacement Laser Sensors and Mitsubishi Q Series PLC's. Card has built-in microprocessor that automatically controls measurement data, resulting in no load on CPU of PLC. Control output terminal operates independently of PLC sequencer, enabling 100 s response times of onboard measurement data such as thickness, leveling, step height, inclination, and averaging.

Press release date: February 24, 2012

West Des Moines, IA - The NEW UQ1 Series from Optex FA Sensors is the first control unit in the industry to offer easy connection and automatic communications between Optex FA CD Series Displacement Laser Sensors and Mitsubishi Q Series PLC's. The UQ1 control card has a built in microprocessor that automatically controls measurement data between the laser and the Q series, resulting in no load on the CPU of the PLC. The card comes with a control output terminal that operates independently of the PLC sequencer enabling fast response times of complex onboard measurement data such as thickness, leveling, step height, inclination, and averaging (min. 100microseconds).

Set-up is easier than ever. Communication setup is unnecessary as the UQ1 series is recognized by simply installing it on the base unit. Bar graph status of sensing distance, measurement result, and laser head connection status are available through a simple LED display on the card. UQ1 Navigator PC software is also available to adjust sensor parameters, and check measurement status without requiring ladder programming knowledge.

Multiple UQ1 units can communicate and perform measurement calculations through "FIrST" infrared communication which was originally developed for the UQ1 series. UQ1 Series is ideal for high speed measurement applications. Manufacturers currently using Mitsubishi Q series PLC's with laser displacement sensors would benefit from the UQ1 Series.
