GLS Proximity Sensor: Direction of Magnet Section

FAQ No. FAQ00348

Primary Contents


Will there be any problem if GLS Proximity Sensors are installed with the direction of the magnet section changed?


As shown in the following figures, there is no problem if the magnet section (GLS-M1) is rotated 180°. However, install it so that the direction of travel is in the direction of the arrow.

The sensing distance will decrease if the magnet section is mounted on a steel plate or other magnetic object. Check the sensing distance before operating GLS.
