About four times more robust in tightening

As the sensor can be securely tightened, it does not get loose due to vibration or shock.

About four times more robust in tightening

Long sensing range

GX-12MLU(B)/N12ML(B) feature 1.6 times longer sensing range than previous model [GX-12ML(B)]. It can be mounted at a sufficient distance from the object.

Long sensing range

Spatter-resistant type available [DC 2-wire type]

As the enclosure is entirely coated by fluorine resin, the sensor can be safely used at a place where welding spatters fly around.
Both the pigtail cable and the mating cable are also spatter-resistant.

Spatter-resistant type available [DC 2-wire type]

Visible 2-color indicator

The normally open type [GX-(F)□U(-J)] is equipped with a 2-color indicator. (The normally closed type and GX-N□ have the operation indicator instead.)
The operation is easily observable from any direction because the entire sensor tail (transparent, GX-5SU(B): enclosure) lights up.

Visible 2-color indicator

Compact size: ø5.4 mm ø0.213 in

GX-5SU(B) is just 5.4 mm 0.213 in in diameter, the smallest in existing DC two-wire sensors. It saves space.

Compact size: ø5.4 mm ø0.213 in

Simple wiring [DC 2-wire type]

The wiring cost of the DC 2-wire type is 2/3 that of a conventional model.
Further, each of GX-12M(L)U(B), GX-18M(L)U(B), GX-30M(L)U(B) is available as a pigtailed model that makes replacement easy and quick.

Applications

Detecting traveling aluminum pallets
Detecting traveling aluminum pallets

It can reliably detect even aluminum pallets because of its long sensing range.

Controlling depth of drilling
Controlling depth of drilling

By detecting the dog, the sensor decides the depth of the drilled hole.

Positioning object at welding station (GX-F□U-J only)
Positioning object at welding station (GX-F□U-J only)

It can be safely used even where welding sparks (spatter) fly around.
