- Photoelectric fork sensor made of anodised aluminium with M8 connector (3-pin)
- torsion-resistant metal housing guarantees perfect functioning even at fluctuating temperatures and under mechanical load
- Light-on/dark-on mode can be set via potentiometer
- Protection rating IP67
DescriptionThe AO901 is a photoelectric fork sensor which has a fork width of 30 mm. The measuring principle conforms to a through beam sensor with red light. Transmitter and receiver are permanently installed in the housing so that quick commissioning without alignment is possible. Thanks to the torsion-resistant metal housing, the photoelectric fork sensor functions perfectly even under a mechanical load and with fluctuating temperatures.
Light and dark-on mode can be easily set with the rotary switch. A fine and precise light beam runs along the fork width and reliably detects very narrow objects. The required sensitivity for such applications is set intuitively via a potentiometer. The photoelectric fork sensor is suitable even for very harsh environmental conditions thanks to the high protection rating of IP67.
