Industry 4.0 inductive and photoelectric sensors for limited space applications

31-10-2019 | Mouser Electronics | Test & Measurement

Mouser now stocks the Contrinex inductive and photoelectric sensors from Molex. These miniature sensors are excellent for applications including food and beverage, filling plant, packaging machines, textile, machine tools, and logistics.

The devices are robust, self-contained sensors with an integrated IO-Link in a compact housing. Part of the company's range of Industry 4.0 solutions, the sensors offer a large sensing range and are perfect for limited space applications and challenging environments.

The inductive sensors provide a long sensing distance range of 1mm to 40mm, which decreases the risk of sensor damage from close objects. The sensors offer one-piece, factor-1 steel and aluminium housing, IP67- and IP69K-rated enclosure, and vibration and shock resistance, making them ideal for harsh and wet environments.

The sensors are offered in cubic and cylindrical housings running on diffuse, reflex, and through-beam operating principles, with sensing distances ranging from 1mm to 50,000mm. The IP67 and Ecolab-rated devices provide excellent colour and contrast recognition, a diffuse sensor with background suppression, and UV light technology for transparent object detection.
