Optical Data Transmission Device

BWF - Serial Type High Performance Optical Data Transmission Device

Manufacturer: HOKUYO

The BWF Series optical data transmission devices enable data to be transmitted quickly and reliably between an aligned pair of units over long distances. Typical uses are on overhead and stacker cranes, automated storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS) and transfer cars for non-contact bi-directional communication from the vehicle to the control unit. The use of modulated light as the transfer method means that these transceivers do not incur physical wear like trailing cables and slip rings nor do they require recalibration like radio systems.

CWF/EWF SERIES

Manufacturer: HOKUYO

The CWF/EWF Series are small, lightweight, economical type optical data transmission devices that enable data to be transmitted quickly and reliably between an aligned pair of units over mid- range distances. Typical uses are on overhead and stacker cranes, automated storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS) and transfer cars for non-contact bi-directional communication from the vehicle to the control unit. The use of modulated light as the transfer method means that these transceivers do not incur physical wear like trailing cables and slip rings nor do they require recalibration like radio systems.

DM SERIES

Manufacturer: HOKUYO

The DM Series are half-duplex parallel-type and full-duplex serial-type optical data transmission devices that enable data to be transmitted quickly and reliably between an aligned pair of units over short distances. Typical uses are on automated guided vehicles (AGV), rail-guided vehicles (RGV) and overhead transports (OHT) for providing a wireless link between the vehicle and a fixed docking station. Special models equipped with a 25-pin D-sub connector provide SEMI E84 compliance for interfacing between semiconductor process equipment and automated material handling systems (AMHS). Through a pulse-modulated light beam these transceivers can send 4, 8, 16-bit or serial signals simultaneously in both directions from the active and passive sides depending on the application requirements and model used.

OPEN-NETWORK SERIES

Manufacturer: HOKUYO

The open-network type optical data transmission devices enable data to be transmitted quickly and reliably via Ethernet, CC-Link or DeviceNet between an aligned pair of units over various distances. Typical uses are on stacker cranes, automated storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS), AGVs and transfer cars for non-contact communication from the vehicle to the control unit. The use of modulated light as the transfer method means that these transceivers do not incur physical wear like trailing cables and slip rings nor do they require recalibration like radio systems.

OPTICAL REMOTE CONTROLS

Manufacturer: HOKUYO

The BRS series of optical remote control technology is suitable for many applications requiring simple data transmission between an operator and machine. Featuring small hand-held transmitters and compact receiver units, these models provide reliable communication for distances up to 10 meters. These systems allow an operator to transmit a signal to one specific receiver or several receivers through designated codes. With the flexibility of one transmitter communicating to multiple receiver units, an operator can reduce the number of spare transmitters needed and increase the overall efficiency of the remote control system.
