Contrinex Photoelectric Sensors with IO-Link Compatibility from AutomationDirect

Screen Shot 2022 06 03 At 6 42 35 Pm

AutomationDirect has expanded their vast offering of discrete sensors by adding Contrinex C23 standard and clear object detection sensors. These Contrinex mini rectangular photoelectric sensors are ideal for limited-space applications and are available in diffuse, diffuse with adjustable background suppression, retroreflective, and through-beam models. Sensor housings have an IP67 enclosure rating and are ECOLAB-approved for use in hygienic areas.

The Contrinex TRU-C23 UV photoelectric sensors are designed for detecting transparent objects, such as those made with plastic or glass. Since transparent materials absorb large amounts of polarized UV light, it is very easy to set the threshold at which these sensors switch.

Select models are IO-Link® compatible, providing continuous diagnostic information and easy remote sensor mode selection along with accurate object detection data. All sensor outputs are complementary, allowing them to be used as a light-on or dark-on sensor.

These new photoelectric sensors start at $32.00, come with a 2-year warranty, and are UL listed, CE marked, and RoHs compliant.
