Rugged inductive sensors support PPE manufacturing capacity for N95 face masks during COVID-19 crisis

OEM equipment builders require a single source of robust sensors for integration within machines for producing N95 face masks. Material feeds must be synchronized prior to assembly and, during the process, the part-completed mask must be positioned correctly. Designers specified rugged inductive sensors with IO-Link connectivity from Contrinex, meeting the need for immediate availability while preventing costly machine malfunctions.
