Detect every small part
The new fork sensors of the GS 04B and GS 08B series from Leuze detect even the smallest objects with absolute reliability. They are ideal for reliable detection in high-speed applications.
Owen, 7 March 2022 – Even the smallest objects can be reliably detected - as proven by the new Leuze GS 04B and GS 08B series fork sensors. They detect objects as small as 0.05 millimetres in diameter. Thanks to their high switching frequency of up to 10,000 Hz, this is also possible with fast automation processes. Users benefit from maximum flexibility: the sensors of the GS 04B series are available in 14 different fork widths from 5 to 220 millimetres. The GS(L) 08B series offers four fork widths from 30 to 120 millimetres. This makes them suitable for a variety of industries - for example in the packaging sector or in mounting and handling technology.
Quickly mounted and configured
The compact fork shape of the sensors combines transmitter and receiver in one device. This enables simple and quick mounting without alignment work and offers a high level of operational safety. Due to their very compact design, Leuze fork photoelectric sensors can also be integrated into confined installation situations. Thanks to the extra-wide fork widths of 170 or 220 millimetres, applications with larger objects can also be implemented.
The sensors of the GS 04B and GS 08B series can be configured either via IO-Link or manually via potentiometer. Sensitivity adjustment and light/dark switching ensure maximum reliability. Useful when it comes to high demands on hygiene and resistance to cleaning agents: the GS(L) 08B series offers a robust, resistant and cleanroom-compatible V4A stainless steel housing. It is ECOLAB-certified and meets the high specifications of protection class
