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 produce focused, cylindrical light beams. An IO-Link interface is also available for communication in PNP NO versions.
Types with a 5 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 x 21.8 x 7.7 mm) with small visible light spot thanks to red pinpoint LED offers long sensing ranges up to 2,000 mm in a through-beam type and 3,000 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 x 27.5 x 7.7 mm) reliably detects objects up to 120 mm.
