Only the toughest sensors survive the most extreme environments, and Extreme range inductive sensors from the Full Inox family are ideally equipped for the job. Thanks to one-piece stainless steel (V2A/AISI 303) construction and a hermetically sealed cable entry, Extreme sensors are corrosion-resistant, impervious to oil, and pressure-resistant to 80 bar. Rugged, reliable and highly accurate, the Extreme range is at home in the most challenging circumstances.

CONTRINEX Extreme Inductive Sensors for Harsh Environments Distributors


Developed to withstand the harshest industrial operating conditions, Extreme sensors are rated to IP 68 and IP 69K, delivering fit-and-forget performance with minimal downtime. With operating distances up to 40 mm, the Extreme range senses both ferrous and non-ferrous materials with Factor 1 performance, and is available in sizes from M8 to M30 and C23.

The Full Inox family is based on Contrinex's patented Condet technology. These one-piece stainless steel sensors are not only the most durable on the market, they also offer long operating distances on any conductive metal.

Full Inox sensors also function according to inductive technology. However, the coil which generates the magnetic field is not part of the oscillator. Instead, the field is generated by periodic, short transmitter current pulses, which flow through the coil. This field induces a voltage in the target which, in turn, generates a current flow in it. When the transmitter current pulse is switched off, the current in the object dies away, causing a voltage to be induced in the transmitting coil.

  • Mechanically and chemically extremely robust
  • Corrosion resistant
  • IP 68 and IP 69K, sea water resistant
  • Pressure resistant up to 80 bar (1160 psi)

This voltage generates the signal required, and is in principle independent of the field's energy loss. Therein lies the fundamental advantage of this technology, since the field energy losses, which are evaluated in conventional sensors, are subject to a number of undesirable environmental and material influences. Condet technology allows the sensor, including its face, to be fully encapsulated in a protective, stainless steel housing, with the added security of long operating distances.

The coupling between the target and the coil is rather like a transformer, and is hence temperature independent and only slightly influenced by the target's material. Operating distances are therefore identical on steel and aluminum. Only metals which are non-ferromagnetic and also have poor electrical conductivity give a reduced usable signal. The Full Inox technology family includes devices from the Basic, Miniature, Extreme, High pressure, Washdown, Weld-immune and Special ranges. This technology is used in series 700 devices.

SymCom Monitors

The High Resistance Grounded Unit uses an external zero-sequence CT to provide an accurate 1-10A range for ground fault current measurements. When the unit is used in an HRG system, equipment damage can be prevented and system availability can be improved. Pair the 777-LR-HRG-P2 with an appropriate SymCom I/O module to provide independent alarm control. The unit can also be connected to one of SymCom's remote monitors for a simple, cost-effective

SUNX Sensors

EX-L200 Series has the same mounting pitch as ultra-compact photoelectric sensor EX-20 series so that the time taken in designing is saved. Due to the customized IC and optical design, high precision detection is fulfilled with directivity and visibility achievable only by laser. The laser adopted is Class 1 (IEC / JIS / FDA) laser that is safe to use, so that there is no need to separate the areas of sensor usage. Visual positioning is easy due to
