Simple light intensity and ON/OFF control through Ethernet communication Connecting is simple.
Just plug in a LAN cable!
With support for DHCP, the OPPD-30E automatically obtains IP addresses and other information necessary for connection.
Manual configuration of network settings required with conventional models is unnecessary, and communication can be easily established simply by connecting a LAN cable within a DHCP server network environment.
With the OPPD-30E, light intensity values can be rewritten for both channels in about 6 ms.
- OPPD-30E : Approx. 6 ms / 2 ch
- Conventional Optex FA models : Approx. 11 ms / 2 ch
- Other manufacturer products or equivalent : Approx. 18 ms / 1 ch
Simple PC software-based setup
Dedicated PC software is available for the OPPD-30E. This software can be used to configure light intensity, ON/OFF control and frequency, among other aspects. brAccess the Optex FA homepage to download the software for free.
*LAN cable required separately.
- Intuitively operable interface
The software interface has been developed so that light intensity and ON/OFF control can be seen at a glance.
Settings can be easily configured through pull-down menus or through direct input.
*Screen content and layout subject to change.

New lighting control features
Illumination control input allocation function
With conventional models, one lighting output is allocated per controller input.
With the OPPD-30E, users can switch between one or two lighting units for every input at the controller.
In addition to reducing the number of wiring, the OPPD-30E enables flexible input changes even after wiring has been completed.
Ex. 1: Simultaneous output to 2 channels for 1 input
Ex. 2: Switchable output
Lighting control sequence
With the OPPD-30E, up to four illumination setting patterns including light intensity values can be configured. Each pattern can be configured in an illumination control sequence with ordered switching for each illumination control input. (Lighting delay time settings are shared.) With intensity values and illumination widths set in advance, automatic switching is only performed for illumination control input, allowing the time required for changing settings to be kept to a minimum.
With conventional models, control is not possible without using a PLC and setting up complex ladders.
With the OPPD-30E, such control can be achieved with no other equipment required.
Ex. 1: Light intensity value and emission width switching
Lighting control sequence: 2-count setting
Ex. 2: Lighting switching
Lighting control sequence: 2-count setting
Automatic brightness management and predictive lighting maintenance
Brightness/temperature monitoring and feedback control
Connecting the OPPD-30E to lighting equipped with “FALUX sensing” enables monitoring of the lighting brightness and temperature.
Based on these monitored values, light intensity feedback control can be performed, allowing brightness to be kept constant.
- Monitoring function
The lighting’s built-in photodiodes are used to monitor the brightness of the lighting.
Alarm output: Setting a threshold in advance makes it possible to output an alarm when brightness decreases to a predetermined level.
Instrumental error adjustment: Absolute brightness monitoring makes it possible to adjust for lighting instrumental errors.
- Light intensity feedback control
Automatic brightness management
With LED lighting, decreases in brightness can occur due to various factors including drops in voltage caused by extension cables
and LED deterioration.
The factory default brightness is maintained through automatically corrected intensity values to prevent drops in brightness.
Corrections can be verified as “Corrected intensity value.”
The feedback range is determined by the set intensity value and the maximum intensity value (999).
A signal is output as a feedback error when the maximum intensity value is reached.
The PWM ON time is corrected according to changes in brightness, allowing brightness to be automatically adjusted.
<Reference> OPPF Series
Output voltage is corrected according to changes in brightness, allowing brightness to be automatically adjusted.
Measured brightness/temperature logging function
Measured values such as brightness and temperature can be collected and displayed in a graph using the dedicated software (PC).
Data can be output as a .csv file. Displaying monitored values allows users to recognize LED degradation. This feature is useful as a function for predictive lighting maintenance.
