Proximity Sensors

Fork Sensor provides accuracy for labeling applications.

Model GS 06 features integrated alternating light, which virtually eliminates labeling errors due to interference of outside light sources. Gap widths of 2 and 5 mm and switching frequency of 8 kHz ensure small gaps between labels will be detected. Push/pull outputs allow sensor to be connected to PNP or NPN control systems, and integrated light/dark switching feature allows optimum adjustment to...

Light Grid detects small and irregular objects.

With detection range of between 60 mm and 1.5 m, retro-reflective PRG 108 detects objects as small as 6 mm as well as objects that are of irregular shape. Housing measures 80 x 22 x 24 mm and is mountable in space-limited applications. Through and threaded blind holes permit virtually any mounting position, while any of 8 beams can be temporarily eliminated, allowing for system flexibility.
