Fork sensors WF, UF, WFM e WFS - Sick

Simplicity, flexibility, and precision – combined in a single fork sensor.
Sick fork sensors combine senders and receivers in a single housing, meaning that they can be adjusted quickly.

Thanks to the precise, focused light beam and the high detection accuracy, the sensors from Sick also detect very minor light attenuation differences. Many different fork sizes, straightforward mounting, and exceptionally high ambient light immunity are just some of the advantages of these fork sensors.
