GS-8M design engineers Panasonic

Part No: GS-8M


ItemPerformance characteristics
Applicable amplifierGA-2, GA-2R, GA-2D
Max. operation distance3.5 mm 0.138 in
(Note) The maximum operation distance stands for the maximum distance for which the sensor can detect the standard sensing object.
Stable sensing range0 to 1.5 mm 0 to 0.059 in
(Note) The stable sensing range stands for the sensing range for which the sensor can stably detect the standard sensing object even if there is an ambient temperature drift and/or supply voltage fluctuation.
Standard sensing objectIron sheet 18 × 18 × t1 mm 0.709 × 0.709 × t0.039 in
Hysteresis50 μm 1.969 mil or less
Repeatability3μm 0.118 mil
or less
(Note) The repeatability is given for the stable sensing range. (along sensing axis, perpendicular to sensing axis)
