The new GS 04B and GS 08B series fork sensors from Leuze detect even the smallest objects with absolute reliability. They provide dependable detection in high-speed applications.
Even the smallest objects can be reliably detected with the new Leuze GS 04B and GS 08B series fork sensors. They detect objects as small as 0.05 mm in diameter. Thanks to their high switching frequency of up to 10,000 Hz, this is also possible in fast automation processes. The GS04B sensors are available in a wide range of different versions, with 14 different fork widths from 5 to 220 mm, enabling users to select exactly the right one for their application.
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 assembly and handling technology.
The compact fork shape of the sensors combines transmitter and receiver in one device. This enables simple and quick mounting without need for alignment and offers a high level of operational reliability. Due to their very compact design, Leuze fork photoelectric sensors can also be easily installed into very small spaces. Thanks to the extra-wide fork widths of 170 or 220 millimetres, applications with larger objects can also be implemented.
The GS 04B and GS 08B series sensors can be configured either via IO-Link or manually via potentiometer. Sensitivity adjustment and light/dark switching ensure maximum reliability. The GS(L) 08B series offers a robust, resistant and cleanroom-compatible V4A stainless steel housing which is ideal for the high demands of hygiene and resistance to cleaning agents. It is ECOLAB-certified and meets the high specifications of protection class IP67.
