User Manual xi Preface Laser Standards This laser marker is classified as Class 4 Laser Product according to the follow- ing: EU: EN60825-1 USA: 21 CFR 1040.10 China: GB7247-1 Datalogic, as manufacturer of laser products, provides a laser marker which is NOT intended for immediate use, but it must be connected, by others, to other devices which have the final aim of creating a laser processing system. The final system manufacturer MUST ensure the safety of the laser processing machine according to its standards including the risk-analysis, implementation of safety measures, certification and testing of safety measures and the produc- tion of adequate information for use of the machine. Datalogic is available for providing to the customers all the information in its possession to help in complying with applicable standards. CAUTION xii ArexTM 400 Use of controls or adjustments or performance of procedures other than those speci- fied herein may result in hazardous radiation exposure. Overview OverviewThe Fiber laser marker developed and manufactured by Datalogic employs the most advanced technologies with regards to the opto-mechanical parts, the electronic control of laser beam power, communication and the overall safety of the entire marker. The ArexTM 400 laser marker features a control rack and a scan head. The control rack size is standard 19" 2.5U. The scan head compact dimensions make it easy to integrate. All product connections are on the rear or front of the control rack. Laser SourceOn ArexTM 400 laser marker it is used a sealed fiber laser source. This source is based on the new fiber solid state technology. It guaranties high stability, lower sensitivity to optical misalignment and a longer product lifetime. Galvanometric scan head The scan head features two deflection mirrors that deflect the beam in X and Y directions, depending on the graphics/pattern to be reproduced. Operation of a laser marker with galvanometric scanning During the marking the laser generates an invisible, high-energy infrared beam. In order to obtain a more accurate focus, the laser beam is first enlarged using an optical expansion system and then deflected by a scanning system consisting of two mirrors mounted on galvanometric motors. These mirrors deflect the beam in a controlled path along the X and Y axes; pro- cessing of the product surface occurs by coordinating the movement of the two mirrors and the turning on/off of the laser beam. The deflected laser beam is focused by an F-Theta scan lens on the surface of the product. Generally speaking, the marking is carried out within the focus plane of the F- Theta scan lens. Marking Software The LigtherTM marking software is preinstalled on the product. NOTE NOTE User Manual xiii Consult LighterTM software user's manual for a proper use of the same. If necessary, consult “How to update the marking software” on page 97, to upgrade the preinstalled software. Preface Important Warnings Access to the internal parts of the laser marker is allowed only to authorized personnel, duly qualified and trained with regards to risks of optical and electri- cal nature. Datalogic declines any and all responsibility for work carried out on active parts by untrained or unauthorized personnel. WARNING WARNING WARNING WARNING WARNING WARNING xiv ArexTM 400 It is forbidden to change the intended use for which the product was designed and developed. Datalogic declines any and all responsibility for improper use of its laser product. The integration and use of this laser marker is customer responsibility. Never expose reflecting surfaces to laser radiation! The reflected laser beam may cause damage to laser marker. Laser marking interacts with materials through, for example, a thermal carbonization process which may lead to the emission of fumes, dust and vapors. Adequate fume/dust extractor and treatment must be provided by customer! Marking PVC (or other plastic material) can cause the release of chlorine gas which can be harmful to the laser operator and to the laser marker itself. Always use adequate fume extractor during PVC and plastic marking. It is the responsibility of the customer to install the laser marker in proper safety con- dition!

Installation Scan HeadThe scan head must be installed in a suitable environment in order to allow proper air flow and correct housing of the cables. The scan head uses a passive air cooling system: an adequate air flow is neces- sary to guarantee its correct cooling. Install the scan head so that air flow is not obstructed. Moreover, do not install it near a heat source. WARNING 16 ArexTM 400 If not enough space is provided, the temperature inside the control rack could rise, causing temperature error. Figure 15: Scan head installation environment The scan head IP rating is IP64 not considering F-Theta scan lens. NOTE To ensure a complete IP64 protection for 160S and 254S F-Theta scan lenses use the proper accessory (see "M39 F-Theta protective cap" on page 70). NOTE Fume / Dust extractor Fume / Dust extractor During the marking process, dust and/or fume may be produced. It is important to use an adequate fume/dust extractor and/or air filtration (see “Fume Extractor” on page 71). WARNING User Manual 17 Marking PVC (or other plastic material) can cause the release of chlorine gas which can be harmful to the laser operator and to the laser marker itself. Always use adequate fume extractor during PVC and plastic marking. 18 ArexTM 400 Chapter 2 Technical Specifications TECHNICAL CHARACTERISTICS starting on page 19 PRODUCT DESCRIPTION starting on page 20 MARKING AREA SPECIFICATION starting on page 22 GREEN SPOT starting on page 24 CONNECTORS SPECIFICATIONS starting on page 25 INPUT/OUTPUT SPECIFICATIONS starting on page 34 LASER MARKER STATES starting on page 35 TIMING DIAGRAMS starting on page 37 LIGHTERTM SUITE MARKING SOFTWARE starting on page 42 Technical Characteristics Technical Characteristics AREXTM 400 MODELS A20-X6X 110-XXX 120-XXX 130-X6X 150-X6X Electrical specifications Input Voltage (main power supply) V (AC) 100 to 240 @ 50-60 Hz Max.

NOTE WARNING WARNING • ArexTM 130-X6X/150-X6X: square marking field within which power is > 95% with respect to power in center. This product was designed to use only certain configurations of F-Theta scan lens and marking field. If your needs are not satisfied by the currently available F-Theta scan lens configurations please contact Datalogic for a solution. The use of other F-Theta scan lenses or operation outside the specified marking field for a certain F-Theta scan lens configuration can lead to damage of the F-Theta scan lens, scan head or laser source. Such damage is not covered by warranty! For each F-Theta scan lens configuration Datalogic provides a specific adapter. This adapter ensures that residual back reflections caused by the F-Theta scan lens do not damage the scanning head optics. The removal of such adapter or its incorrect use (for example incomplete threading, use of another F-Theta scan lens adapter, etc.) can lead to damage of the F-Theta scan lens, scan head or laser source. Such damage is not covered by warranty!
