TR Electronics Fork Light Barriers


Fork Light Barriers are through beam sensors. Transmitter, receiver and all the electronics are in one casing ensuring straightforward and quick installation. Complex brackets for fastening the transmitter and receiver as well as time-consuming adjustment are unnecessary. Fork Light Barriers have a robust metal casing. All devices with clocked infrared or red light have high ambient light immunity.

  • Metal casing
  • Fork openings from 2mm to 220mm
  • Special sizes are available on request
  • Metal connector
  • Integrated electronic module
  • Sensitivity adjustable or teach
  • Light / dark switching
  • Bright ring LED
  • High protection class

TR Applications

Storage & Logistics

TR Electronic Solutions for the Storage and Logistics industry goes from Displacement Measurement, Laser Distance Measurement, Axis Coontrollers. Contact us to request a product solution for your needs.

Print Industry

From Absolute Rotary Encoders, Incremental Rotary Encoders, Compact Drives, Cam Controllers. Fast signal processing for print machines enables higher accuracy and decentralized compact drives automate adjusting procedures. With stainless steel housings, rotary encoders even sustain aggressive mediums like groundwood pulp in paper machines. Small absolute rotary encoders measure movements in tight spaces.

Stage Technology

Our rotary encoders offer safety in all required classes for stage technology and other SAFE applications. From rotary encoders with additional incremental tracks up to SIL3 certified safety rotary encoders, we offer the right solution for safety.

Injection Molding

Linear measurement systems, for implementing into hydraulic cylinders, blend smoothly into injection molding machines. Industrial PCs are a universal platform for user specific control systems for series production and special machines.
