Full Inox Chip-Immune inductive sensors: Immune to fragments of iron, aluminum, stainless steel, brass, copper or titanium

Machines for turning, milling, drilling or grinding metal will inevitably generate abrasion debris. For inductive sensors, which by their nature detect metal objects, this debris presents a difficult challenge. When sensors are covered with lubricant containing metal chips, there is a risk that they will supply incorrect signals to the control system. For these applications,…

C23 with UV LED

During automated packaging of medical products in sterile conditions, conveyors deliver clear plastic tray bases to loading stations. Miniature transparent-object sensors with patented UV technology detect the presence of trays as they arrive, enabling the loading cycle to proceed without risk of a line stoppage occurring. Manual intervention is avoided, ensuring contamination-free, reliable operation with…

Photoelectric miniature sensor in place of optical fiber

In some applications, installation space is so limited that there is no room for photoelectric sensors. So optical fibers are often used, despite their higher installation cost. Now Contrinex has developed a new photoelectric sensor which, due to its extremely small size, offers the ideal alternative. The sensor specialist has developed a 4 mm diameter…
