Photoelectric Miniature Sensors

New flyer features world’s smallest IoT-ready sensors with IO-Link − diameters from 4 mm However limited the space, Contrinex miniature sensors offer the perfect fit and unrivalled features for their size. For example, despite measuring just 4 mm in diameter (threaded M5), the D04 and M05 photoelectric ranges include an integral IO-Link interface. A new…

The Extra Distance technology family celebrates!

Contrinex Extra Distance sensors now include IO-Link v1.1 as standard Thanks to a new ASIC, all Contrinex’s inductive sensors with long operating distances ‒ the EXTRA DISTANCE (500 series) family ‒ now include an integral IO-Link v1.1 interface in PNP NO versions. This upgrade applies to devices from the Basic, Miniature, Extra Pressure and High…

Inductive HIGH PRESSURE up to 1000 bar peak

Contrinex HIGH PRESSURE inductive sensors are suitable for continuous duty at pressures up to 500 bar (1,000 bar peak pressure), ensuring reliable, accurate sensing in the most demanding pneumatic and hydraulic applications. Available with classic metal housing or one-piece, stainless-steel construction, high-pressure sensors detect the smallest parts and are ideal for piston-control applications where space…

RFID technology with IO-Link connectivity eliminates hose-coupling errors in fluidized pneumatic-transport systems

Bulk-handling- and pneumatic-transport-system designers use RFID technology to eliminate connection errors at manual hose-coupling stations for fluidizable materials. Coupling stations, with IO-Link-enabled read/write modules (RWMs) mounted on each outlet pipe, use manual quick-release hoses to feed materials to multiple machines. RFID tags, mounted integrally within each hose coupling and blanking cap, identify the mating parts…
