Contrinex photoelectric fork sensors are available in various sizes, and consequently suitable for a large range of applications.

They feature a robust, compact and universally mountable housing. They work according to the principle of through-beam sensors, replacing them whereever long operating distances are not required.

CONTRINEX Fork Thru-Beam Sensors Distributors

Fork Sensor

Their advantage, compared to solutions with separate emitter and receiver, lies in their simple installation. Only one component has to be installed, there is no need for mechanical alignment, and the wiring is less demanding.

These devices are suitable for the whole field of assembly technology. The sensors are available with clocked or nonclocked light. Their features differ with respect to response time and ambient light limit.

CONTRINEX Thru-Beam Frame Switches Distributors

Frame Sensor

Contrinex photoelectric frame sensors are available in various sizes, and consequently suitable for a large range of applications. They work according to the principle of through-beam sensors. A considerable number of emitters and receivers respectively are located on opposite sides of the frame, so as to cover the whole passage with a light curtain. The devices are used for the detection of small free-moving parts, e.g. for finished parts at the outlet of stamping machines or presses. They feature very robust, compact and universally mountable housings.

The devices can be switched between two operating modes, dynamic and static. In the former, only those parts that move through the active zone at a certain minimum speed are detected, whereas those that are permanently within the active zone, or that move slowly, are not. On the other hand, when in the static operating mode, all parts in the active zone, whether moving or not, are detected.

CONTRINEX Thru-Beam Ring Switches Distributors

Ring Sensor

Contrinex through-beam ring sensors are available in three different sizes, and consequently suitable for a large range of applications. They feature a very robust, compact and universally mountable housing. They are used mainly in assembly technology for material-flow monitoring of small parts, such as screws, springs, plastic parts, etc, in transparent feeder tubes.

The devices consist of an amplifier and a connectable sensing head, which contains several throughbeam sensors. Consequently, small metallic and non-metallic parts from Ø 1 mm can be detected.

The sensing heads can be combined with dynamically or statically operating amplifiers. The advantage of the dynamic operating principle is that it does not require re-adjusting when the feeder tube is soiled or scratched. On the other hand, static amplifiers also detect non-moving parts, i.e. can for instance be used for monitoring jams.

SSAC Timers

ABB SSAC TDS series combines accurate digital circuitry with isolated 10 A rated DPDT or SPDT relay contacts in an 8 or 11 pin plug-in package. The TDS series features DIP switch selectable time delays ranging from 100 milliseconds to 10,230 seconds in three ranges. The TDS Series is the product of choice for custom control panel and OEM designers. Input voltage must be applied to the input before and during timing.

TURCK Sensors

TURCK is introducing an extension to their CRS series with a new offering of high pressure inductive sensors. This extension offers customers an enhanced offering for applications regarding cylinders with a operating pressure rating of 3000 psi, whereas the previous offering allowed for only 1500 psi. The new high operating pressure CRS series come with embedded LED's, providing a easily visible indication of the sensor.
