AutomationDirect: Fork sensors

PS series fork sensors (slot sensors) from AutomationDirect are U- or L-shaped through-beam object detecting sensors that have the transmitter and receiver built into the opposing "fork" arms of the sensor housing. Depending on model, sensors are available in visible red, infrared, and laser lighting in sensing ranges from 5 mm to 220 mm.

New PS series fork sensor additions include harsh duty U-frame sensors for food applications, L-frame, or angled fork sensors for unique mounting situations, and fork sensors for liquid detection.

Advantages of fork sensors include ease of installation with only one connection point, identical mechanical and optical axis; and with transmitter and receiver built into the same housing they are always in alignment, providing operational reliability and repeatability.

Starting at $86.00, all PS series fork sensors are IEC IP67-rated, have cULus approval and are CE, RoHs and REACH compliant. Harsh duty sensors are also IP69K rated
