Fork type light beam switch

The standard sensor product range from Pepperl+Fuchs also includes a special design of the single path light beam switch: The fork type light beam switch. It is used where only a short distance needs to be bridged between the transmitter and the receiver - a few millimeters or centimeters.

Fork type light beam switches have the advantage in comparison to normal single path light beam switches of a simpler electrical installation, since cabling is only required for one device. In addition, there is no need to adjust the optical axis.
