Adjusting the Sensitivity

In this manual, the value at which the sensor amplifier's ON/OFF output switches is
expressed as the "setting value". The process of adjusting the setting value is expressed
as "adjusting the sensitivity". This section explains the method of adjusting the sensitivity.

List of Sensitivity Adjustment Methods


The methods of adjusting the LV-N10 series sensitivity is largely classified into 2 types.

(2) Calibration
The sensitivity can be adjusted with simple operations. The received light intensity is
not compensated.
This method is used to adjust without calibrating the received light intensity, or when
highly accurate detection is required.
Calibration can be performed in the preset state.

This method can decrease the variation of the received light intensity depending on
the contents of the detection and the workpiece, and is useful for predictive
maintenance.
However, this is not suitable for when difference in received light intensity varies little
with or without a workpiece, such as when detecting a transparent workpiece.

3-3 Adjusting the Sensitivity

Other Calibration Methods


Percentage calibration
A setting value is established with a percentage in respect to the current received light
intensity. When used together with external calibration input, percentage calibration
can be performed from an external device, such as a PLC, allowing highly accurate
detection of transparent workpieces and small workpieces, etc.

Refer to

"Sensitivity Setting" (page 4-4) for details.

Zero shift calibration


Basic Operation

This sensitivity setting performs the zero shift function and basic calibration (two-point
calibration / maximum sensitivity calibration / full auto calibration) simultaneously.
The lower of the received light intensity values specified at the time of sensitivity
setting will automatically be set to 0.
Refer to

Point

3-16

"Sensitivity Setting" (page 4-4) for details.

Percentage calibration and zero shift calibration cannot be set with


channel 2 of the 2-output type models.

Setting the Current Received Light Intensity to 0 (Zero Shift)

Zero Shift Function


This function adjusts the current received light intensity display to "". It is primarily
used with reflective sensor heads. If the received light intensity cannot be set to ""
when a reflective model is installed, this function can be used to set the received light
intensity to "" with no workpiece present. This makes the difference in received light
intensity easier to distinguish.

Enabling the zero shift function

Basic Operation

When the PST indicator is off, press


the [PRESET] button and
button
simultaneously.
The PST indicator lights in green, and the
received light intensity changes to "".
Green PST lights up

Description
To detect a falling workpiece.
The falling edge of the received light intensity is
detected, and output as one-shot.
The received light intensity hold value can be confirmed by pressing the [MODE] button twice on the
output 1 screen.
To use the external input and periodically compensate for the reduction in received light intensity due
to contamination on sensor head face.
A decrease in the light-ON mode's received light
intensity can be detected and output to an external
source by using the 2-output type's output 2.
To use the external input and "0" the light intensity
received without a workpiece present.
The background received light intensity is set as 0
even when calibrating with the buttons on the display.
(Zero Shift calibration)
To 0 the lower of level received light intensity values
in order to display higher values of received light
intensity.
The display can be extended up to 5 digits by pressing the [MODE] button twice on the output 1 screen.
This is recommended when outputting within a specific received light intensity range. When the [SET]
button is pressed once at the reference received light
intensity, the upper/lower setting value limits will be
set at 10% from the reference received light intensity.
This is recommended when detecting a transparent
workpiece. The received light intensity at the state
with no workpiece is set as "", and the displayed
value is increased as the amount of light blocked by
the workpiece increases.
When the [SET] button is pressed or when calibrated
with external inputs, the received light intensity -5%
at that point is set as the setting value.

Interference Prevention
Refer to page 4-2 "System Settings (SYS)" for setting methods.
Malfunction may result from "interference", a phenomenon in which light transmission
occurs simultaneously with any other sensor amplifier.
However, when the number of sensor amplifiers increases, the light transmission
timing automatically shifts and prevents this interference.
Setting this function to "FQD." (Double) on all of the connected amplifier units doubles
the number units that do not mutually interfere.
Function
Normal operation (Default)
The interference prevention doubles over the Standard
state.

FQD. (Double)

Point

Selecting "FQD." also doubles response time over the 5VF state.
When selecting "FQD.", the main unit and its connected expansion
units must all be set to "FQD.".
This function does not work if the eco function is set to
"(W.."(Full).

Reference

If the number of interference prevention units is set to 5VF, the number of


units that do not interfere when the LV-N10 Series main unit and expansion units connected will be as follows. If set to FQD., the number of units
that do not interfere will be doubled.
When unit other than LV-S31 is connected: 0 units for HIGH SPEED, 2
units for FINE/TURBO/SUPER, and 4 units for ULTRA/MEGA.
When LV-S31 is connected: 2 units for FINE, and 4 units for TURBO/
SUPER/ULTRA/MEGA.
Consult with KEYENCE for the interference prevention when using the
LV-N10 Series together with other series.

Setting output 2 to ".K/V" (limit setting output mode) enables detection of reductions
in received light intensity for output 1.
Specifically, if the cumulative minimum of peak value for output 1 falls below the limit
setting value, it is recognized as a reduction in received light intensity and therefore
output 2 is turned on.

Frequently Asked Questions


Category

Trouble

Cause

Action
Review the installation environment.
The received light intensity can be stably displayed at 100.0 by using the preset function.

The received light intensity is inconsistent. How can it be stabilized?

It may be affected by vibration, thermal characteristics caused by thermal changes, or the state of the
workpiece surface, etc.

The received light intensity is too


low. How can it be increased?

This may be the result of a long


detection distance. When using the
reflective model, the intensity of the
light reflected from the workpiece
may be low, or there may be contamination. When using the thrubeam model or retro-reflective
model, the beam axis may be deviated, etc.

"Preset Function" (page 3-6)


When using the DATUM1/2 mode, the set value
and received light intensity are both calibrated to
maintain a set ratio.
"Detection Mode" (page 4-8)

Received light
intensity display

The received light intensity is "",


"P'#T" or "(CT" when LV-S31 is connected.

The workpiece is either too close or


too far from the sensor.

Review the installation environment and detection distance.


The received light intensity value can be
increased by raising (delaying) the power mode.
"Power Modes" (page 4-4)
The apparent received light intensity can be
increased 4-fold by using the light intensity
expansion setting.
"Display Gain" (page 4-30)
Check that the workpiece is installed within the
adjustment range (50 to 200 mm).
Place the workpiece at the position to be set as
the detection center, and adjust it so that the
JUST indicator lights in green (or the received
light intensity value is near 5000). (Refer to page
2-7)
