Contrinex is leading manufacturer of sensors for factory automation. They are a leading manufacturer of inductive and photoelectric sensors as well as safety and RFID systems. They are the world market leader for miniature sensors, sensors with long operating distances and devices for particularly demanding operating conditions (all metal, high-pressure and high-temperature resistant sensors).
Robust and highly reliable, Contrinex inductive sensors are the fit-and-forget choice for non-contact detection of metallic targets at distances up to 40 mm. Vacuum-encapsulated electronics and metal housings protect against shock, vibration, dust, dirt and moisture, making inductive sensors ideal for highly demanding conditions. An inductive sensor generates a magnetic field that is attenuated by a metal target. As a sensor nears its target, a sensing circuit detects the degree of attenuation and switches the output accordingly.
A reflex, or reflective, photoelectric sensor contains a transmitter and a receiver in a single housing, and emits a pulsed, focused light beam through a polarization filter toward a distant reflector. Reflected light returns to the sensor, passing through a second filter before arriving at the receiver. When a target object interrupts the light beam, the receiver detects the reduced light intensity and triggers the sensor.
Contrinex ultrasonic sensors provide reliable, non-contact detection of solid,liquid, granular or powdered materials in air, tolerating precipitation, humidity, dust and fumes. Target materials may be colored, transparent, polished or matt; detection is practically independent of the target’s direction of travel. Diffuse-mode and reflex sensors emit bursts of high-frequency sound waves toward a target, measuring the time elapsed until an echo is received. They contain a transmitter and a receiver in a single housing.
Robust and extremely versatile, Contrinex capacitive sensors detect position or presence of conductive and non-conductive materials, including liquids, pastes and bulk solids. Capacitive technology permits detection of targets through thin non-metallic barriers, ideal for controlling packaging and filling processes.
