Product Details Supplier Info More products

The Balluff BGL Web Edge sensors are available with 30 or 50mm openings and a red light field of 25mm.

A resolution and repeat accuracy of less than 0.1mm and high linearity gives precise measuring of objects and fast, accurate sensitive web-edge guiding.

In contrast to conventional solutions, they provide stable values even in conditions of height fluctuations.

Available in three different versions, the user can select the optimum sensor depending on the complexity of the application.

The Basic version offers two freely selectable switching outputs, the Advanced model adds a third switching output, an error output and an analogue output, while the Premium version is designed especially for fast, easy field bus linking via IO-Link.

The analogue signal of 4-20mA or 0-10V is proportional to the penetration depth of the object and can be configured for a rising or falling output curve.

The Basic and Advanced models of these fork sensors are available as PNP or NPN logic types.

When working in dusty environments, the BGL Web Edge has the added advantage of an integral air rinsing nozzle, which prevents dust from accumulating on the optical transmitter and receiver, this is easily connected via a standard pneumatic tube.

Start-up is simple and practical using a teach-in function.

Normally open or normally closed mode is selected by simply pressing a button and the Advanced version allows the output to be configured as a switching or error output.

The compact processing electronics are housed in a rugged metal housing with IP 67 enclosure rating.

All fork sensors are connected using a four-pin M12 plug and have standardised mounting holes.
