AutomationDirect’s 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 and identical mechanical and optical axis.

  • Transmitter and receiver built into the same housing are always in alignment, providing operational reliability and repeatability.

  • Available in visible red, infrared and laser lighting and in sensing ranges from 5mm to 220 mm.

  • 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.
