KCX-B□W(M) replace

Question

Question

I am continuously using KCX-B □ W (KCX-B □ WM).
I heard that it will be discountinued, which is the alternative model?

Answer

Answer

A similar model is the KCV series.
Since there are differences in specifications, please check the following notes when replacing.

KCX-B series KCV series remarks
KCX-B4W KCV-4S 4-digit AC power supply
KCX-B4WM
KCX-B6W KCV-6S 6-digit AC power supply
KCX-B6WM

Notes


The external dimensions are different. (KCX: 72mm □ → KCV: 48mm □)

2. The maximum counting speed is different. (KCX-B: 20kHz → KCV: 10kHz)

3. The output current of the power supply for the sensor is different. (KCX: 80mA → KCV: 60mA)

4. The KCV transistor output cannot be used in positive logic (PNP).

5. The terminal block arrangement and setup method are different between KCX-B and KCV.

6. KCX has no contact output / contact output for the first set value,

There is also a non-contact output / contact output for the second set value,
For KCV, the output of the first set value (with prediction output) is non-contact output,
The output of the second set value is the contact output.

Input connection method

KCX_input

Output connection method

KCX_output

If the contact output is used for the KCX-B’s first set value output, an external relay is required at the time of replacement.

If a non-contact output is used for the second set value output of KCX-B, it will be a contact output after replacement.

Preset value

Both KCX-B / KCV are set with each digit key.

DIP switch setting

KCX_dipsw

When replacing mode 0 (hold output / count continuation), SW5 of KCV is set to ON.
KCX-B □ Dip SW4 (input / output logic) settings are set in the KCV setup mode.
* The transistor output of KCV cannot be used in positive logic (PNP).

Settings in setup mode
