Fibre optic amplifier

When setting-up fibre optic amplifiers you need to be completely familiar with the various steps and features of the product; otherwise you must first read the detailed instruction booklet. In shop-floor applications this can be time consuming, inconvenient and often an issue if the information is not readily available. Imagine a fibre optic sensor amplifier that helps you by scrolling the instructions for setting on its own screen? Contrinex now offers an 8-digit, 14-segment liquid crystal display fibre optic amplifier which does just that. All you have to then do is follow the steps to teach and commission the sensor.


Available in a small DIN-rail mountable housing of only 30mm x 60mm x 10mm, these slim new devices permit optimum stacking, even in large num­bers, especially in systems where space is limited.
