Full Inox Miniature: Small, smart and indestructible

Contrinex 11/17/2015

Full Inox MiniatureThe new series of Full Inox Miniature inductive sensors from Contrinex are the smallest self-contained inductive sensors on the market. Available in sizes M5 and Ø 4 mm as both PNP and NPN types, they are ideal for use wherever space is scarce and operating conditions are harsh. Thanks to a high-quality ASIC with integral IO-Link interface, all PNP-types in this series satisfy the requirements of smart factories.

Full Inox Miniature sensors have excellent temperature stability from -25°C to +70°C (-13°F to +158°F), a high switching frequency up to 1200 Hz and a long operating distance of 3 mm. The robust, one-piece stainless steel housing of these inductive sensors has IP68 and IP69K protection. It is corrosion- and seawater-resistant and resists pressure up to 80 bar. These housing characteristics, combined with encapsulated electronics, ensure consistently optimal reliability even under high loads and in demanding environments, for example in robotics, micromechanics or linear drive technology. With an IO-Link interface integrated as standard, these sensors are well equipped for the demands of modern smart factories.

Thanks to their subminiature size, robust housing and long operating distance these Full Inox Miniature series sensors are ideal for applications that require the highest reliability and durability in the smallest space. They contribute to a reduction of machine mass without sacrificing mechanical strength. Sensor-related downtime is virtually eliminated.
