Product Details

Sick Fibre Optic Sensor

The Sick sensor is a type of proximity sensor that has an optical fibre connected to a light source to allow for detection in tight spaces or where a small profile is beneficial. The GLL170 fibre optic sensor is a reliable solution for all detection tasks in combination with the fibres in the LL3 family. With its simple operating concept, the sensor is ideal for applications in harsh environments, as well as, when rapid response times are crucial. The GLL170 variant with potentiometer enables quick and easy commissioning. It has an electric rating of 10 to 30VDC.
