Customized Sensor Solutions

Adapting the sensor to the application In many cases, off-the-shelf sensors do the job without problems. However, the advent of Industry 4.0 and the demand for bespoke or single-batch production bring with them an increasing need for customized sensor solutions. Modifications range from minor changes to the wiring, housing or electronics to completely new functional…

Inductive ANALOG OUTPUT

Engineers needing a reliable, repeatable, highly accurate means of measuring the position of a target object should look no further than Contrinex ANALOG OUTPUT inductive sensors. Best-in-class temperature stability and a measurement range of zero to 40 mm make the Contrinex analog sensor range ideally suited for measuring linear, angular and rotational position. With detection…

Rugged inductive sensors support PPE manufacturing capacity for N95 face masks during COVID-19 crisis

OEM equipment builders require a single source of robust sensors for integration within machines for producing N95 face masks. Material feeds must be synchronized prior to assembly and, during the process, the part-completed mask must be positioned correctly. Designers specified rugged inductive sensors with IO-Link connectivity from Contrinex, meeting the need for immediate availability while…

Transparent object sensors

The Contrinex TRU-C23 photoelectric sensor is ideally suited for the presence control of transparent objects. Its patented technology uses UV light. Since transparent materials like plastic or glass absorb large amounts of polarized UV light, it is very easy to set the threshold at which the sensor switches. This makes commissioning much easier. The shape…

RFID Basic

Contrinex Basic RFID components are ideal for general identification and monitoring tasks in almost any industry. The family includes low- and high-frequency passive, plastic transponders (tags) and threaded Read/Write Modules (RWMs). All devices are insensitive to dirt. HF components (13.56 MHZ) are fully ISO/IEC 15693-compliant, while LF components (31.25 kHz) utilize a proprietary data communication…

Photoelectric Miniature sensors

The Contrinex Miniature range packs exceptional position- and presence-sensing performance into the smallest self-contained photoelectric sensors on the market. Designers have the choice of through-beam or diffuse sensors in ø4 and M5 cylindrical metal housings that offer multiple mounting methods and beam orientation. For fully embedded applications, sensors produce focused, cylindrical light beams.  An IO-Link interface…

Inductive EXTREME

Only the toughest sensors survive the most extreme environments, and Contrinex EXTREME inductive sensors from the Full Inox family are ideally equipped for the job. Thanks to one-piece stainless-steel (V2A/AISI 303) construction and a hermetically sealed cable entry, Extreme sensors are corrosion-resistant, impervious to oil, and pressure-resistant to 100 bar. Rugged, reliable and highly accurate,…

Inductive CHIP-IMMUNE

Inductive CHIP-IMMUNE sensors eliminate the risk of false switching due to metal debris in milling, drilling or grinding processes. Steel or aluminum objects are reliably detected, even when sensors are covered with metal chips. With extremely robust, one-piece stainless-steel housings, an IP68/IP69K protection rating and operating temperature range from -25 to +85°C (-13 to +185°F),…

Color and contrast sensors

Color photoelectric sensors utilize energetic-diffuse sensing technology to detect variations in target color, allowing color sorting or color control. A “teach-in” function is used to program up to three separate outputs. Contrinex color photoelectric sensors also feature five selectable tolerance levels for each output, enabling the sensor to recognize or ignore even the smallest variations…
