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 with spherical sapphire-glass lenses produce focused, cylindrical light beams.
Types with a 5 mm x 7 mm stainless-steel housing and a narrowly focused, cylindrical light beam are suitable for vertical or horizontal mounting directly on the supporting surface. Best-in-class sensing distances of up to 90 mm allow them to be positioned at a safe distance from the target.
The C12 Series (13.5 mm x 21.8 mm x 7.7 mm) with small visible light spot thanks to red pinpoint LED offers long sensing ranges up to 2000 mm in a through-beam type and 3000 mm in a polarized reflex type. Two background suppression types are available with fixed sensing ranges up to 15 mm or 30 mm. A third type with 3-turn potentiometer (13.5 mm x 27.5 mm x 7.7 mm) reliably detects objects up to 120 mm.
