As per the manualThe Blue wire -> 0VDCThe Black wire -> 5 to 40VDC through a loadThe Brown wire -> 12 to 24 VDC
For the external non-Arduino power source, can I use a power adapter of one of my devices?The adapter shows below values on the labelInput: 100-240 V ~50/60Hz 0.35AOutput: 12V DC 1.0A
I am thinking I will cut the output lead pin to expose the 2 wires and connect one wire to arduino ground and another wire to the Brown wire of the sensor.
Thank you so much dougp, I did it as per your instructions, Yes, I used a multimeter to check the polarity and connected the right polarities to ground and source wire on keyence sensor and it worked!!
Can I join all the blue wires from the sensor together and connect to ground pin in arduino?
Do I use 3 12V dc adapters for each sensor or can I use one 24V DC adapter ?
If I use one 24V DC adapter, do I just join all the brown wires from the sensors together and connect to 24V DC?
how can I connect
Thanks Dougp, never mind the "how can I connect" part, but I connected all 3 sensors with the 24V DC adapter and it worked perfectly!!
I want to extend on this.The Keyence sensor is on an equipment and until now I have been connecting the Arduino to my laptop, so I was able to place the laptop right next to the sensor, but in reality, I want to connect the arduino to my Red Hat server which is about 100 meters away, from the equipment.I am planning to use a male usb to ethernet converter from the server end and female usb to ethernet converter on the arduino end and connect an ethernet cable in between to extend the arduino cable. Would it cause any problems if I do it that way? I havent tried it yet, since I don't have the usb to ethernet converters yet, but If it is possible to do so , I will buy them.
