    How to Align the DS455Q Photo Beams

    Issue

    What is the proper alignment procedure for the DS455Q?

    Solution

     Alignment by LED

    1. Apply power to the system.
    2. Use the supplied interruption sheets to cover the lower optical modules of the transmitter and the receiver.
    3. Look into the upper scope of the transmitter 10 cm (3.9 in.) to 15 cm (5.9 in.) from the optical module. Use the turntable to adjust the horizontal angle.
    4. Use the horizontal and vertical adjustment screws to locate the receiver in the center of the viewing area.
    5. Look at the Level Meter on the receiver to proceed with fine tuning. 
    6. Use a screwdriver to adjust the angle of the upper optical module.
    7. As more beam energy is received, each LED status follows this sequence: ON_Flashes quickly_Flashes slowly=>OFF
    8. Continue fine tuning until all LEDs turn off.
    9. Remove the interruption sheets from the lower optical modules and cover the upper optical modules of the transmitter and the receiver. Repeat the alignment process for the lower optical modules.
    10. When all LEDs turn off, the alignment is complete. Remove the interruption sheets from the optical modules.

    Alignment Using a Voltmeter

    1. Apply power to the system.
    2. Use the supplied interruption sheets to cover the lower optical modules of the transmitter and the receiver.
    3. Insert the voltmeter leads into the alignment check terminals.
    4. Set the voltmeter to 10 volts VDC.
    5. Use a screwdriver and adjust the upper optical modules to obtain the maximum voltage.
      In an ideal environment, the voltage is 3.0 VDC or above.
    6. Remove the interruption sheets from the lower optical modules and cover the upper optical modules of the transmitter and the receiver. Repeat the alignment process for the lower optical modules.

    Make sure to remove the interruption sheets and close the covers when alignment is complete.
