    6.11 Replacement of an M12 Autofocus Lens The autofocus module has an 8 mm M12 lens pre-attached. Replace the pre-attached M12 lens by following the procedure below. Precautions • Before attaching or removing autofocus accessories, turn the power of the vision sensor OFF. Failure to do so may result in damage to the vision sensor and/or the autofocus accessories.
  • Page 87 Remove the keyed light baffle. Using a 2 mm hex wench, loosen the four captive screws to remove the light housing. Using a 1.5 mm hex wrench, loosen the three captive screws in the autofocus module to remove the autofocus module from the vision sensor.
  • Page 88 Place the lens tool directly on the lens, with the padded end of the tool pressed against the lens. The M12 lens is held in place with a blue threaded lens nut on the underside of the autofocus module. Holding the lens tool in place, remove the blue lens nut from the lens. Remove the M12 lens from the autofocus module.
  • Page 89 Insert a new M12 lens into the module. Once the lens is in the module, quarter turn the screw thread of the lens clockwise to fix the lens in the lens carrier. Place the lens tool directly on the lens, with the padded end of the tool pressed against the lens. With the chamfer side of the blue lens nut facing the module, insert the blue lens nut and fingertighten until snug.
  • Page 90 Temporarily fasten the three captive screws on the top of the autofocus module using a 1.5 mm hex wrench. Tighten the captive screws with a force of 0.50 N⋅m using a torque screwdriver with a 1.5 mm hex torque bit capable of reaching 15 mm into a 2.5 mm diameter hole.
  • Page 91 Tilt the light baffle toward the light housing, and maneuver the light baffle under the LED ring light in order from the bottom. Light baffles are designed to fit the structure of LED ring lights. When placing the light baffle, check the position of the character, "TOP" on the light baffle to place it in the same direction as the following figure.
  • Page 92 Place a light cover on the light housing. Align the central clear region of the light cover with the light baffle edges. Insert four M3 × 12 mm screws, and tighten them using a 2 mm hex wrench in the order of one to four shown in the following figure.
