Fork sensors for fluid detection

Balluff has extended its existing range of BGL fork sensors by offering a fluid detection sensor. This infrared fork sensor is suitable for detecting the level of clear, coloured or turbid fluids with a water content greater than 15% through transparent walls. Fluids such as milk, household cleaners, viscous detergents and ketchup cause no problem for this compact sensor.

Available with fork openings of 30mm and 80mm, these compact sensors are housed in a rugged IP67 rated metal enclosure. The sensors have a switching frequency of 2kHz and are available with NPN or PNP output. The BGL fork sensor has 3-pin M8 connection and standard through-holes for mounting. Custom made bracketry solutions are no longer required, with a sensor holder available from the new Balluff BMS universal mounting system.
