Contrinex’s metric-threaded cylindrical photoelectric sensors are compact IO-Link-enabled devices, ideal for smart factory applications. Designed with easy integration in mind, M12 and M18 sensors are equipped with tough ABS housings (M18P) or robust metal bodies (M12M, M18M). Featuring Contrinex’s exclusive ASIC technology, these devices are available in diffuse, reflex, through-beam and background-suppression (M18 only) variants, offering best-in-class sensing distances at highly competitive prices.
With Ecolab approval, M18P photoelectric sensors are already a popular choice for process engineers in the food and beverage sector. The M12M and M18M devices not only deliver the same proven sensing capability and resistance to washdown and process fluids*, they bring additional robustness to the table for environments where mechanical shock and excessive vibration are factors. With rugged chrome-plated brass (M12M) or stainless-steel housings (M18M) as well as shatter-resistant PMMA optics, these metal-bodied sensors are at home in the harshest environments.
