High-precision Optical Switch
Optical System Achieves 1-mm
Operating Position Repeatability in this
■ A knife-edge mechanism in the optical system
provides greater precision for a more stable out-
put without faulty contact operation.
■ Reduced size and weight (34 mm at operating
section and 60 g total).
■ Wear-resistive ceramic parts used in the mea-
■ Two different output types available.

1. The above figures are initial values.
2. Life expectancy values are calculated at an operating temperature of 5C to 35C, and an operating humidity of 40% to 70%.
Contact your OMRON sales representative for more detailed information on other operating environments.
3. Measurements were conducted repeatedly at the same point. The value is 1 mm max. for 200 measurements. For other condi-
tions in detail, contact your OMRON sales representative.
4. The ambient operating temperature varies depending on the current. Refer to the following Engineering Data.
