Robust and extremely versatile, Contrinex capacitive sensors detect position or presence of conductive and non-conductive materials, including liquids, pastes and bulk solids. Capacitive technology permits detection of targets through thin non-metallic barriers, ideal for controlling packaging and filling processes.

CONTRINEX Basic Capacitive Sensors for Any Target Material Distributors


The Contrinex Basic range consists of cylindrical and cubic devices. Cylindrical devices are available in 4-wire M12, M18 and M30 standard sizes. All 3 sizes may have PNP or NPN changeover outputs, while M30 devices are also available with 2-wire switching outputs (AC/DC, NO). Housings are either in durable polyphenylene oxide (PPO) or stainless steel (V2A AISI 304) with a PPO sensing face.

Sensor connection is by means of cable or an integral connector. All device types are available in embeddable versions, allowing detection through container walls. In addition, M18 and M30-sized devices are also available in non-embeddable versions that permit longer operating distances. Cubic devices are available, sized 32 x 34 mm in a PVC housing with 3-wire connection, or 120 x 80 mm in a PBT housing with 4-wire connection.

With operating distances from 0.5 mm to 25 mm, Contrinex Basic range capacitive sensors are the cost effective solution for level sensing tasks in the plastics industry, in particular for the level control of granulates in feeders, pipes or silos.

CONTRINEX Reliable High Performance Capacitive Sensor Distributor

High Performance

The Contrinex High performance range consists of 4-wire devices in M12, M18 and M30 standard sizes. All 3 sizes may have PNP or NPN changeover outputs. Housings are either in hygienic polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE/Teflon) or stainless steel (V2A AISI 304) with a PTFE sensing face. Sensor connection is by means of cable or an integral connector. All these device sizes are available in non-embeddable or embeddable versions.

Devices with a PTFE housing are FDA compliant and ideal for applications in food and pharmaceutical industries. This hygienic housing material cannot contaminate produced goods and resists chemical cleaning agents.

For the difficult task of sensing sticky and viscous materials, the High performance range includes Ø 26/G1-sized sensors in a non-embeddable PTFE housing with PNP Changeover output.

With operating distances from 0 to 30 mm, Contrinex High performance range capacitive sensors are the ideal solution for difficult sensing tasks in demanding industries and environments.

TURCK Sensor

The Rectangular Devices offer high-quality components and high functionality in a rugged housing. These sensors moreover convince through easy and convenient mounting. The prescribed free zones are considerably smaller, lowering the construction effort while enhancing the system availability. You save time and money. Capacitive sensors work reliably and safe, even under rough environmental conditions.

SUNX Sensors

Using a Separate Control Board, each beam channel can be output individually. This is particularly useful for a variety of applications such as discriminating the size of traveling objects, or for sensing their position. A narrow 20 mm (0.787 in) beam pitch offers high sensing performance. It is able to detect a minimum 30 mm (1.181 in) diameter opaque object. SUNX SF1-F series is reduced in volume with only 40% the cross-sectional area of a conventional model.
