LABELLING requires high-speed precision and the Leuze fork sensor GS06, available from Balluff-Leuze , fullfils this requirement.

When triggering labelling machines it operates with utmost accuracy and reliability. Its mouth widths of 2mm and 5mm allow the detection of a wide range of labels.

Due to the high switching frequency of the GS06 even the smallest gaps between labels can be reliably detected. This results in a very high reproducibility.

The GS06 is first fork sensor to use an integrated modulated light source.

With this sophisticated technology its intelligent receiver can differentiate between the transmitted light and external light coming from other sources. This helps to avoid incorrect labelling as a result of spurious light.

User friendly adjustment for Leuze means the sensor can be set to individual applications by simply pressing its integrated teach button.

For more demanding applications the GS06 is also available with a multithread potentiometer that allows precise adjustment of the sensor.

With its push/pull outputs the GS06 can be connected to both PNP and NPN controllers. Its light dark switching feature guarantees optimum adjustment to the controller.

Fast set up is supported by three versions that allow connection of the sensor either through an M8/M12 round plug or cable with open ends.
