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 forsmall part detection. The sensors are also easy to mountbecause no timeconsuming adjustment is required.
The fork sensors of the FGL-IK and FGL-RK series detect partsfrom a diameter of 0.2 mm. They are used, for example, forsmall part detection on conveyor sections and chutes or forcounting bulk goods on vibration conveyors. Rotational speed measurement is another typical application.
