Fork and angle sensors as well as through-beam sensors are based on the same basic principle. The scratch-resistant, mineral glass collimator optics used in the fork and angle sensors OGxxxU.R/ OGxxxL.R and OGxxxU.L produces an even and very narrow light beam. This feature gives the sensor its high detection accuracy, which is guaranteed over the entire beam range from all sides.
The largest laser fork sensor can reliably and repeatedly detect a 50 μm object over the entire 170 mm range. The virtually parallel light beam and the small beam angle of the receiver optics allow for installing fork and angle sensors side by side without interaction. They even can be deployed in the manufacturing process of small light barriers.
Configurable sensitivity features two different options – manually using a potentiometer for less sophisticated requirements on sensitivity or configuration by teach-in.
Easy sensitivity adjsutment thanks to mechanical 270° potentiometer directly on the fork sensor.
Teach-in: The teach in functionality allows for quick configuration in the field by simply using the teaching button or external cable.
