2D Code Reading Sensor PD50
To ensure that you install this product correctly, read this installation manual carefully
before installation. Once you finish installing the product, keep this manual in a safe place
for future reference.
Always take precautions to ensure the overall safety of your system, so that the whole system
remains safe in the event of failure of this product or other external factor.
Do not use this product in areas with inflammable gas. It could lead to an explosion.
Exposing this product to excessive heat or open flames could cause damage to the lithium
battery or other electronic parts.
To prevent abnormal exothermic heat or smoke generation, use this product at the values less
than the maximum of the characteristics and performance that are assured in these
Do not dismantle or remodel the product. It could lead to abnormal exothermic heat or smoke
Do not touch the terminal while turning on electricity. It could lead to an electric shock.
Use the external devices to function the emergency stop and interlock circuit.
Connect the wires or connectors securely. The loose connection might cause abnormal
exothermic heat or smoke generation.
Do not allow foreign matters such as liquid, flammable materials, metals to go into the inside of
the product. It might cause exothermic heat or smoke generation.
Do not undertake construction (such as connection and disconnection) while the power supply
Do not bend the cables forcibly, place a heavy object on them or bring them close to a thermal
appliance. This might result in an electric shock and smoke coming from the product.
Precautions for Installation
Only use Optional Cables, Operation Unit, and Finder Unit specified
by Matsushita Electric Works, Ltd. Any damage faults or defects arising from
the use of products not specified by Matsushita Electric Works, Ltd are not covered
by product warranty.
The protection structure (IP67) for the Main Unit functions with the USB cable removed
and water-proof cap attached. If the protection structure got wet or dusty under
any other condition, malfunctions, damages and defects may occur.
Do not connect Ethernet to the connector on the Operation Unit for connecting
the Optional Cable or the port for connecting the Operation Unit.
This may cause product damage.
Avoid installing the PD50 in the following locations:
Locations with ambient temperature outside the range of 0 ℃ to +40 ℃
(without icing and dew condensation)
Ambient humidity outside the range of 35 to 85% RH
(without icing and dew condensation at 25℃)
Locations where airborne dust, oily smoke, conductive dust, or corrosive or
flammable gas is present
Locations where oil or chemicals may splash the product
Locations subject to strong vibration or impact
Locations subject to direct sunlight
Locations near the devices that generate large switching surges,
high-voltage wires (devices), power-driven lines (devices), and transmitting devices,
such as radios (at least 100mm)
Use a rated voltage of 21.6 to 26.4 V DC for the mains power supply.
Use a power supply with more than 1A current capacity.
Ensure that the mains power supplied to the product comes from a source other than
a motor power supply and that a protection circuit (fuse, etc.) is installed.
Prevent electrostatic buildup.
Keep the cable connecting between the product and the Operation Unit and
the input/output signal cables to/from the product at least 100mm away from
other cables such as power transmission cable or electric power cable and
keep the signal cables as short as possible.
Make sure to fit noise suppressor or other noise killers to the load source
when direct inductive loads (motors or relays) are connected to the external device
which is connected to the Main Unit.
Use an earth for grounding and avoid sharing an earth with other equipment.
Ensure that the earth source is as close to the product as possible and keep the length
of the earth cable short.
Lighting equipment for image processing system generates signal of extremely
high level due to high frequency lighting. If you use external lighting, arrange the wiring
of power transmission and signal cables carefully.
Before Turning on the PD50
Confirm that the power wiring and input/output wiring are correct.
When turning the PD50 on again, wait at least 10 seconds.
(The device may malfunction.）
Note on Connecting the Positive Terminal of the Power Supply to Ground
Confirm the followings before connecting the positive terminal
of the power supply to ground.
Install another power supply for PD50 Main Unit. Do not connect the positive terminal
of the power supply to ground (See  in the figure below).
Should the positive terminal of the power supply be connected to ground, do not use
the FG terminal of an external device such as PLC, etc. because the SG terminal
of the PD 50 may be connected to ground via the FG terminal.
(See  in the figure below)
For some computers, the SG terminal of RS232C port and the outer shell of
the connector have already been connected.
The +24 V terminal of the PD50 is not insulated.
If a computer is connected, the SG terminal of the PD50 and the FG terminal of
an external device such as PLC, etc. will be connected and a short-circuit condition
will occur, resulting in damaging the internal circuit ground.
Observe the followings when installing or using the product.
Note on Connecting to the PD50
Do not apply load to the connector joints.
Turn the product off before attaching the wires, mounting or removing the product.
