The WFE is a rugged fork sensor that is simple and easy to mount. Thanks to its reliability and accurate detection, it is suitable for a large number of applications. The WFE can precisely detect objects up to a size of 0.5 mm with a high switching frequency of 5 kHz. The sensitivity adjustment, a push-pull output, and the ability to select between light and dark switching make it flexible and convenient to use. The WFE is enclosed in a rugged hybrid housing (IP67) made from ABS plastic with a carbon steel frame and performs reliably even in harsh environments. 5 different fork widths and several different types of connector are available. The WFE is therefore well and truly an all-in-one fork sensor solution.
