Robust and highly reliable, Contrinex inductive sensors are the fit-and-forget choice for non-contact detection of metallic targets at distances up to 40 mm. Vacuum-encapsulated electronics and metal housings protect against shock, vibration, dust, dirt and moisture, making inductive sensors ideal for highly demanding conditions. An inductive sensor generates a magnetic field that is attenuated by a metal target. As a sensor nears its target, a sensing circuit detects the degree of attenuation and switches the output accordingly. Patented Condist oscillator circuitry allows best-in-class operating distances, while all-metal construction including the sensing face is possible with revolutionary Condet technology. Designers everywhere specify Contrinex inductive sensors as industrial limit switches and position switches, as pulse-counting devices, or for distance and speed measurement.
