Contrinex Sensor Technologies
Contrinex Ltd: is a leading manufacturer of inductive and photoelectric sensors. Contrinex specialises in the production of miniature devices, long operating distances and devices in all-metal houses.
The main focus and business area of Contrinex is in their development and manufacturer of sensing equipment.
The Contrinex product range includes a selection of the smallest inductive proximity sensors in the world, which have an operating sensing distance range of four times that of traditional sensors. Known for being robust and highly reliable, Contrinex sensors are widely used in numerous industrial environments.
Many Contrinex sensors have all metal housing and are rated IP67 to withstand the most severing operating conditions of pressure, temperature and environment. Due to the size and flexibility of operation, Contrinex sensors are ideal for packaging industry, handling systems and process control.
For applications dealing with the food, beverage and marine industries, Contrinex also provide IP69 sealed rated versions of their sensors.
Contrinex Sensors specialise in:
Contrinex ultrasonic proximity sensors are used as a contact free sensor in numerous areas of automation. Ultrasonic sensors are commonly used to measure distances in air, as they not only detect objects, but also evaluate the absolute distance between themselves and the target. When an object enters the preset sensing area, the echo it causes as it passes through causes the sensor to activate and the device to switch.
Contrinex manufacturer five distinct models of ultrasonic sensors with diverse operating functions. The ultrasonic sensor range start with diffuse and reflex sensors of a housing size of 40mm x 40mm with a sensing range of 0 to 200mm.
The next level up is the M18 size diffuse sensor with a sensing range of 0 - 700 mm and the M18C size with a sensing range of 100 - 700mm. In the next size up, the M18W is a reflex sensor which provides a sensing range of 150 - 1,000mm and in the size of the M30 is a through beam sensor for sensing items within a range of 200 to 1,300mm.
Contrinex RFID (Radio Frequency Identification Systems)
Contrinex RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) is commonly used in numerous automation and logistic areas. RFID allows for objects to be clearly identified by method of electronic labels (transponders or tags).
To withstand harsh industrial environments and particularly demanding processes the RFID tags from Contrinex are made from stainless steel.
The main advantages of RFID technology compared to classic systems such as bar codes or laser marking is the fact that the transponder information can be read or written even if there is no direct line of vision between it and the read/write module. Also the transponder information can be supplemented, modified or deleted with ease.
