Contrinex’s CE-marked C23 sensor line offers IO-Link compatible models.
AutomationDirect has added the Contrinex C23 standard and clear photoelectric sensors, 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 model is designed for detecting transparent objects, such as those made with plastic or glass and allow the threshold to be set at which these sensors switch. Select models are IO-Link compatible, but all sensor outputs are complementary, allowing them to be used as a light-on or dark-on sensor.
