Function: GL5-L/28a/115

The GL5 miniature slot sensor compares a high optical performance in a small housing and is optimized to the requirements in semiconductors industry for small part detection. A wide voltage range of 5 - 24 V DC and the fastest switching frequency of 5 kHz in its class stands for the quality of this sensor. The integrated aperture allows the small part detection with a minimum object size of 0.8 x 1.8 mm. The sensor offers antivalent npn or pnp outputs. Due to a variety of different housings and an optimized housing concept offers the sensor a maximum of freedom in a crowded mounting environment.
