Inductive sensors series 500 sensors with 4 times standard distance

The Contrinex vision for innovation and technological enhancement means that this company has constantly set new standards in the world of sensors.

Contrinex laid the cornerstone for enhanced sensing technology with the extremely long sensing distances of its series 500 inductive sensors. Many years later these products are still unique in terms of performance and quality. By implementing ASIC technology Contrinex took these sensors to the next level.

Features :

  • Long operating distance up to 4 times the standard
  • Outstanding temperature stability from -25°C (-13°F) to +70°C (+158°F)
  • High switching frequency
  • Short housing versions available
  • Perfect solution for applications with limited space
  • High EMC protection

Why Long Sensing Distances?
80% of all inductive sensor breakdowns are due to mechanical damage. Increasing the distance between a sensor and dangerous moving parts is the easiest and most effective way to reduce downtime!

Key advantages :

  • Downtime reduced by 60%
  • Excellent sensing stability even with normally difficult to detect targets like small and thin parts, wires and non-ferrous metals
  • Easy installation reduces setup time
  • Perfect for applications with varying targets
  • Reliable detection of vibrating objects

Intralogistics :

  • Sensors used in fully automated, world class, intralogistics need to deliver reliable performance 24 hours a day, 365 days a year

Customer Advantages :

  • Secure distance from moving objects
  • Reduced risk of sensor breakdown and consequent downtime
  • Reliable and cost effective sensing solution

Carbon fiber is the material of the future :
until recently, carbon fiber was generally a material for high-end products, such as sports equipment, medical devices and aerospace applications. however, there is a developing trend among the world's automotive companies to start using this material commercially as a way of manufacturing more economical cars without loss of performance. this trend is confirmed by the research programs and collaborations of all the world's major car manufacturers. to achieve their common goal, the price of manufacture must be reduced and automated processes implemented. Any secure process is highly dependent on reliable sensing solutions. with the series 500 the secure detection of carbon fiber is guaranteed.
