Typical fork sensors and optical windows

Fork sensors and optical windows display characteristic properties as a result of their special housing design: thanks to their precise beam guidance they are particularly suitable for small part detection. The sensors are also easy to mount because no timeconsuming adjustment is required.

The fork sensors of the FGL-IK and FGL-RK series detect parts from a diameter of 0.2 mm. They are used, for example, for small part detection on conveyor sections and chutes or for counting bulk goods on vibration conveyors. Rotational speed measurement is another typical application. The optical windows of the FG series are employed, for example, for detecting thread breaks in the textile industry, for part detection in transparent tubes in pneumatic conveyors, or for ejection detection. Fork sensors and optical windows are frequently the first choice for use in plants subject to strong vibrations, in particular, thanks to their robust housings and the design-related fixed light beam.
