Heilind Electronics has expanded its portfolio of Molex industrial automation solutions to include Contrinex inductive and photoelectric sensors.
Molex Contrinex inductive sensors provide non-contact detection of metallic targets at distances up to 40 mm. Vacuum-encapsulated electronics and metal housings protect against shock, vibration, dust, dirt and moisture, making inductive sensors ideal for highly demanding conditions. In addition, the sensors are rated to IP68 and IP69K and sized from M8 to M30. Uses include industrial limit switches and position switches, as pulse-counting devices, or for distance and speed measurement.
Ideally suited for the presence control of transparent objects, Molex Contrinex photoelectric sensors deliver long-distance, non-contact detection of metallic and non-metallic targets. Utilizing its patented UV technology, the sensor system contains an LED that emits polarized UV light and a reflector made of specialized materials. Contrinex photoelectric sensors accommodate variable target color and surface finish and ensure transparent object detection within a 1200 mm range.
The integration of Contrinex inductive and photoelectric sensors into the Molex product portfolio presents designers with a wide range of sensor solutions for Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) applications.
