Fork sensor series for harsh environments
Balluff’s F series of fork sensors includes IP69K rated stainless steel self-contained through-beam sensors designed for the most challenging environments. These sensors incorporate a 316L stainless steel housing that are designed to withstand aggressive cleaning solutions, coolants, and lubricants. The protection provided by the housing makes these sensors ideal for food and beverage, packaging, metalworking, and pharmaceutical industries. These stainless steel fork sensors are available in 50 and 80mm widths. Features include normally open and normally closed outputs to solve most applications and allow for easy integration into control schemes. Powerful infrared light sources solve application with mist and other airborne particulates, while red light allows for easy alignment in general application. LED’s for power and switching indication in the connector allow for easy troubleshooting and sensor status.
