Contrinex reputation for high-performance inductive sensors with many unique benefits has been further enhanced by its innovative SMART sensors, which combine a microcontroller with the sensor’s sophisticated ASIC to add on-board processing to “Measure, Monitor, Configure and Predict” – They offer machine builders the ability to program a customised sensor for their application, without the cost and time delay associated with ordering low-volume custom parts.
The product brochure uses application examples to explain how the sensors can be used to provide Multi-mode High-Resolution Measurement; Embedded Predictive-Maintenance Features; User-Defined Memory; User-Configurable Outputs; Direct Device-to-Device Communication; Dual-Channel Outputs; Switching delay, stretch and one-shot; Temperature; BITE; and Counters.
Contrinex offers designers the freedom to implement multiple sensing modes in a single sensor, offering exceptional versatility and simplified integration. These SMART sensors can supercharge your IoT strategy and enjoy all the advantages of the industry-standard IO-Link interface, plus the option of high-speed sensor-based decision-making using SIO (Standard IO mode).

Designing your sensor with IO-Link connectivity and multiple user-configurable outputs offers a cost-effective, yet highly capable solution with multi-mode high-resolution measurement of either routine process data or critical-event data. A single device is capable of either direct or indirect measurement of multiple parameters, including distance, linear and angular position, velocity, vibration and force. Additionally, Contrinex’s proven ASIC technology enables operating-cycle counting and temperature monitoring.
Contrinex’s metal-bodied SMART sensors are available with a plastic sensing front-face for typical applications or in their uniquely robust 700 Series technology. These sensors feature the housing and front-face machined from a single piece of stainless steel (V2A /AISI 303), plus unique technology that provides robustness to survive extreme environments, such as being demonstrated by being used to hammer 50mm nails into wood.
