Fork sensors (also called slot sensors) use through-beam photoelectric technology to detect objects passing through the slot. The rugged one-piece housing keeps the emitter and receiver in alignment and a convenient, single-cable connection is provided. A variety of light sources are available for specialty sensing applications, with sensing distances up to 220mm.

Fork sensors function according to the through-beam principle. The transmitter is located in one arm of the fork and transmits its light to the receiver directly opposite in the other fork arm. Thus a great advantage of fork sensors is that the transmitter and the receiver no longer need to be aligned.
