AutomationDirect has added a new series of Contrinex M18 photoelectric sensors to their ever-growing selection of discrete sensors, as well as a new sensor tester used with various sensor types to verify operation in the field.
The Contrinex M18 sensors are made in the USA and have a short body for easy installation in even the tightest locations. These sensors are available in diffuse, diffuse with adjustable background suppression, retroreflective, and through-beam models, and with NPN and PNP logic. All PNP models are IO-Link compatible, and all sensor outputs are complementary, allowing them to be used as a light-on or dark-on sensor.
With sensing distances of up to 1200mm, connection options include a 2 meter, 4-wire PVC cable or a 4-pin M12 quick-disconnect.
The AutomationDirect sensor tester can test any DC-powered sensor of any brand for proper functionality. This tool can save time before installation or while troubleshooting.
