This company’s line of fork sensors now includes IP69K-rated self-contained through-beam sensors (photo) that incorporate a 316L stainless-steel housing that is able to withstand exposure to aggressive cleaning solutions, coolants and lubricants. The protection provided by the housing makes these sensors suitable for the food and beverage, packaging, metalworking and pharmaceutical industries. These sensors are available in 50- and 80-mm widths, and feature normally open and normally closed outputs that allow for easy integration into control schemes. The sensors are equipped with power infrared light sources, as well as LEDs for power and switching indication in the connector. — Balluff Inc., Florence Ky.
