End-product size in the industrial market is becoming smaller while, at the same time, more components are required for new functions. Product designers face design issues due to space constraints. Contrinex Inductive and Photoelectric Sensors are the smallest to-date self-contained miniature sensors on the market.

Rugged automobile and industrial applications can be subject to shock, vibration or rough handling that can cause signal interference. Contrinex Inductive and Photoelectric Sensors use single-piece metal housing, which makes them practically indestructible. Additionally, these sensors are compliant to IP67, 68, 69K and Ecolab, which makes them suitable for challenging environments.

Detecting clear or transparent objects (e.g., glass, transparent film, liquid, etc.) is extremely challenging. Contrinex Photoelectric Sensors (Ecolab approved) use patented UV technology to detect transparent objects. These sensors ensure transparent object detection up to 1200.00mm range.

Automotive and Industrial Automation OEMs require sensors that are resistant to shock, vibration and chemicals. Contrinex Inductive Sensors have a one-piece stainless steel construction. Rated to IP68 and IP69K and sized from M8 to M30, the sensors allow sensing distances up to 40.00mm.
