Forked Sensors

More power in a small design

With the new GS 61 and GS 63 optical forked photoelectric sensors, Leuze electronic complements the very successful ultrasonic forked sensors of the GSU 14B and IGSU 14B series to create an outstanding performance portfolio. With the GSU 14B and IGSU 14B sensors, developed for precise and fast detection with high web speeds and dispenser accuracy and the use of various material combinations—from paper to transparent foils, printed or metalized—a clear benchmark was already set. The new GS 61 and GS 63 sensors, developed especially for the detection of non-transparent labels, are characterized by further, particularly user-oriented features. Thus, the consid- erably reduced response time and the very high repeatability ensure un- matched reliability. The extremely flat, lower fork in the new slim-line design enables integration directly at the dispensing edge in installation situations with very limited space. Large mouth widths for the processing of booklets or folded labels offer a very broad spectrum of use. Lockable teach buttons for safeguarding against manipulation and ALC (Auto Level Control) for improving the functional reliability on devices equipped with these features are further innovations of this unique sensor family.

GS 61 - The world's smallest forked photoelectric sensor in industrial quality

  • Optical forked photoelectric sensor with 3 mm mouth width for exact detection of labels on base material;
  • Simple sensitivity adjustment via multiturn potentiometer or optionally via teach-in function;
  • Slim-line design (reduced fork height) for installation directly on the dispensing edge;
  • Removable operating head for easy parameter adjustment without tools;
  • Smallest dimensions of all industrial forked photoelectric sensors with an excellent price / performance ratio.

GS 63 - First-class technology in a new design

  • Optical forked photoelectric sensor with 3 mm mouth width and 60 mm mouth depth also making it ideally suited for detecting wide labels;
  • High switching frequency and short response time guarantee very good repeatability;
  • Easy adjustment via lockable teach button or teach input;
  • Robust metal housing that is sealed to protect against corrosion by means of the cathodic dip painting method familiar from automotive engineering;
  • Slim-line design (reduced fork height) for installation directly on the dispensing edge;
  • ALC (Auto Level Control) function: highest performance reserve through autonomous online optimization of the switching threshold;
  • Storage of up to ten teach values in the sensor;
  • Warning output for indicating teach or function errors.

Ultrasonic forked sensors - GSU 14B and IGSU 14B

  • Ultrasonic forked sensor for universal application;
  • Large mouth width, hence also suitable for booklets or fan-fold flyers;
  • Basic version GSU 14B comparable with the previous model GSU 14;
  • EasyTeach function: press button - dispense labels - done!;
  • ALC (Auto Level Control) function: highest performance reserve through autonomous online optimization of the switching threshold;
  • Warning output for indicating teach or function errors;
  • Easy adjustment via lockable teach button or teach input.

GSU 710 and 712 - The first ultrasonic forked sensors for double-sheet detection

Expensive purchase price, minimal tolerances and complicated mounting struc- tures are things of the past. The extremely compact ultrasonic forked sensors from Leuze electronic can be mounted with no considerable additional effort and reliably detect even in applications where other sensors would have had to give up. They save space, mounting time and printing material and, in the end, seri- ous money.

Тhese arguments speak for them- selves

  • Flexible mounting options for simple mounting in any environment
  • Very large measurement range from 20 g/m² to 800 g/m² with nearly all materials (paper, cardboard, transparent and coated foil, metal foil, …)
  • Integrated indicator diodes for fast diagnostics
  • Considerably lower purchase price with the same functionality in the relevant measurement ranges
  • Compact, lightweight construction for small mounting spaces and simple suspension mounts
  • The forked sensors are ready for operation and are easy to use
