Contrinex Photoelectric Sensors
A reflex, or reflective, photoelectric sensor contains a transmitter and a receiver in a single housing, and emits a pulsed, focused light beam through a polarization filter toward a distant reflector. Reflected light returns to the sensor, passing through a second filter before arriving at the receiver. When a target object interrupts the light beam, the receiver detects the reduced light intensity and triggers the sensor.
Photoelectric Cylindrical Subminiature – The Cylindrical Subminiature 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 with spherical sapphire-glass lenses produce focused, cylindrical light beams.
Photoelectric Cylindrical Miniature – Contrinex M12 photoelectric sensors provide market-leading performance and reliability in a rugged miniature package that ensures excellent resistance to shock and accidental impact. Best-in-class sensing distances are achieved utilizing through-beam, diffuse or polarized reflex sensing principles, with the 1120L laser through-beam sensor suitable for extended sensing ranges up to 50 meters.
Photoelectric Cylindrical Small – Small, rugged and highly reliable, Contrinex M18 photoelectric sensors are ideal for demanding industrial environments, including automotive assembly, packaging machinery, conveyor systems and general automation equipment. A comprehensive range comprises diffuse sensors (both energetic and background-suppression variants), reflex sensors and through-beam sensors with the option of either axial or lateral sensing.
Photoelectric Cubic Subminiature – The Cubic Subminiature range of diffuse sensors packs exceptional position- and presence-sensing performance into the smallest self-contained photoelectric sensors on the market. With a 5 mm x 7 mm stainless-steel housing and a narrowly focused, cylindrical light beam, these sensors 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.
Photoelectric Cubic Miniature – The world-class performance of Contrinex photoelectric sensors combined with industry-standard rugged Crastin® molded-resin housings delivers exceptional reliability in an almost indestructible package. Ideal for applications where space is tight, the 30mm x 30mm x 15mm body is unobtrusive and allows sensing distances up to 12 meters. Available technologies include diffuse sensing (with both energetic and background-suppression variants), polarized reflex sensing and through-beam sensing. Best-in-class background suppression allows ultra-reliable target detection, even against light backgrounds.
Photoelectric Cubic Small – Contrinex 4050 and 4150 photoelectric sensors (Cubic Small) allow sensing distances up to 50 meters thanks to a choice of diffuse (energetic or background-suppression), polarized reflex or through-beam technologies. Insensitive to high levels of ambient light, and available with glass or coated-plastic windows, 4050 and 4150 models are ideal for industrial applications including packaging and wrapping machinery, filling systems and general automated equipment. Best-in-class background suppression allows ultra-reliable target detection, even against light backgrounds.
Photoelectric Cubic Compact – Designed from the outset to be cost-competitive without compromising performance, Contrinex 5050 et 6080 photoelectric sensors (Cubic Compact) pack an exceptional range of features into industry-standard housings. Equipped with a shatter-resistant PMMA acrylic-glass sensing face, the range is at home in the most demanding environments including packaging and filling lines, conveyor systems and the machine tool industry.
