Keyence’s ultra-compact contact sensors, GT2 Series, with 1-mm and 5-mm stroke lengths, allow for use in narrow spaces as well as other applications. This offering allows for the ability to select the best solution based on measuring range, appearance, resolution, accuracy, mounting method or measuring force.

The GT2 series includes the company’s Scale Shot System II, which overcomes time-consuming origin adjustment and high-speed tracking errors that conventional contact-type measuring devices typically have. The GT2 Series contact sensors can last more than 200 million cycles without having to replace the sensor, resulting in decreased maintenance costs. A seamless structure allows for a dust-proof, watertight and oil-resistant contact sensor. These sensors can be used in the harshest environments.

Keyence’s protection mounting brackets are designed to prevent damage from either horizontally applied force or over-compression of the sensor.
