I’m hoping somebody may be able to help out a total noob on the hardware side of things… My company recently purchased a Keyence LR-W500 sensor. As far as I can tell, I should be able to wire it into a SNAP-IDC5 input module, but I know very little about wiring. I would be eternally grateful if somebody could point me in the right direction.
The LR-W500 can be configured wither NPN or PNP. I’m not sure which option is best. Here’s the extent of the wiring diagram that came in the instructions:
I currently have a PAC-R1 controller and a SNAP-IDC5 input module with nothing attached to it. I think I need a 24 V DC power supply for the LR-W500, which I also have. Can anybody give a suggestion about which of the LR-W500 wires need to be connected to the power supply and which to the IDC5 module?
Thanks in advance for any help.
