G10 Photoelectric Sensor Can Be Mounted and Aligned in Seconds

The G10 is a cost-effective sensor that can be mounted and aligned in less than 10 seconds, drastically reducing commissioning and installation time.

SICK, one of the world's leading manufacturers of sensors, safety systems, machine vision, encoders and automatic identification solutions for factory and logistics automation, today announced the launch of the G10 photoelectric sensor with Q-Lock mounting. The G10 is a cost-effective sensor that can be mounted and aligned in less than 10 seconds, drastically reducing commissioning and installation time.


The G10 incorporates precise PinPoint LED technology to ensure simple alignment and reliable object detection at sensing distances up to 1,200 mm with background suppression. Since no reflector is required, installation time is reduced. An easy-to-use potentiometer and bright 360° indicator LEDs ensure easy adjustment and status monitoring. In addition, universal DC and AC/DC power supplies provide even greater application flexibility.

The G10 is a complete product family that features a wide range of cables, reflectors and mounting accessories. It provides reliable detection regardless of dust, dirt, humidity and extreme temperatures, making it ideal for a variety of logistics and machine building applications.

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

SCHUNK's New Safety Gripping System EGN

With the SLS, SOS, and STO functionalities, the SCHUNK EGN gripping system certified in accordance with DIN EN ISO 13849 enables safe human/machine collaboration. If the production process is interrupted by an emergency shut-off, the SCHUNK EGN goes into either a safely limited speed mode or a safe stop mode depending on the activated protection zone. In contrast to other solutions available on the market, the SCHUNK safety gripping system is continuously powered even in the safe operating stop so that the gripped parts are reliably held even without mechanical maintenance of gripping force. As soon as the protection zone is released, the gripper immediately switches back to the regular operating mode without the system having to be restarted.
