PD4 Series

Equipped with a full range of lighting control functions
Digital control unit PD4 Series designed for ease of use in manufacturing sites

Introducing a new standard model equipped with sequence control and
PLCCOM communication functions that responds to increasingly sophisticated FA environments

Features (1)

Features

  • Lighting output of 60 W / 120 W available
  • Number of channels: 2 channels / 4 channels
  • Ethernet / parallel external control
  • Parallel type supports both NPN and PNP connections
  • 1,024 steps of precise intensity settings
  • All types have natural air cooling for easier installation
  • Utilizes color LCD for easy operation and display

Sequence

Turn lights on in desired pattern with sequence control function

Program up to 16 steps of ON input for a pattern of light emission.
For example, when using 4-quadrant bar lights or segmented lights to illuminate from multiple directions,
the emission patterns for each channel can be stored and switched ON / OFF by trigger input.

Difference in lighting operation depending on trigger operation mode setting values

Program a maximum of 16 steps of ON input.
Sequence operation can be performed with multiple steps per trigger or 1 step per trigger.

When the Set Value of the Trigger Operation : Mode Is 1-Trigger 1-Step Sequence Operation
Mode Is 1-Trigger 1-Step Sequence Operation
When the Set Value of the Trigger Operation : Mode Is 1-Trigger N-Steps Sequence Operation
Mode Is 1-Trigger N-Steps Sequence Operation
Sequence Control Application Examples
Imaging using photometric stereo method

The workpiece is illuminated and imaged in each direction.
It is possible to generate images that highlight only the unevenness or extract only the pattern by using the differences of each captured image.

stereo method

For details, see "Sequence Control" on page 9 of the operation manual.

Features (2)

Trigger Output Mode

Trigger signal can be output from the control unit

Sends an output trigger signal to the camera so the timing of the light and camera can be synchronized.

Trigger Output Application Example

Trigger Output Application Example

*1 Filter time can be set when noise is mixed in with the signal input from the trigger pin.

Recipes

Save lighting settings in a maximum of 8 recipes

Parameter settings such as intensity values for each channel and other inspection-specific parameter settings can be registered in advance, allowing for easy setting changes simply by recalling recipes.

Application

Application (Patent Filed)

Easy to configure lighting parameters

Two versions: basic version and standard version.

Basic Version
Application : Basic Version

Basic lighting settings such as intensity value and light emission time, as well as trigger input / output settings.

Standard Version
Application:Standard Version

In addition to the functions of the basic version, all functions of the PD4 Series can be configured, including sequence control, real-time monitoring functions, etc.


System Requirements: Windows 10 / NET Framework 4.7.2
* The application can be downloaded from "Product Lineup"
* The standard version application is for the PD4 only

Product Lineup

Real-Time Monitoring Function

Real-time monitoring of information such as lighting operation status, operation logs, etc.

The operation data can be used for preventive maintenance, such as replacing LED lights at the appropriate time.

Communication function

PLCCOM Communication

Supports PLC link function for easy integration with PLCs

PLCCOM communication allows the product to be controlled by reading and writing memory areas on the PLC via Ethernet. Easy to install because there is no need to create a program specifically for the control unit.

Without PLCCOM Communication [For Conventional Control Units]

A program is needed to communicate with the control unit separately from the various lighting parameter settings.

Without
With PLCCOM Communication [For PD4]

Can be connected via the PLC function, so there is no need to build a communication program.

With PLCCOM Communication [For PD4]
PLCCOM Communication Specifications
For PLCs supporting MC protocol For PLCs supporting FINS commands
• Device : Data register
• Protocol : MC protocol for MELSEC-Q series
• Frame : 3E frame
• Transmission code : Binary
• Transport : TCP or UDP
• I/O Memory : DM Area
• Protocol : FINS Commands
• Transmission code : Binary
• Transport : TCP or UDP
• FINS node address :
 For the TCP setting, specify the address that is automatically
 assigned by the PLC. For the UDP setting, specify the 4th octet
 of the IP address of the Control Unit.
 (Eg. When the IP address is 192.168.0.123, specify 123.)

For details, see "Overview of PLCCOM Communication" on page 25 of the operation manual.

USB Communication

Equipped with a USB connector to enable data communication with a PC while connected to external control devices

Various settings and operations can be verified via USB communication.
Use a USB cable with a ferrite core.
