Compact, Long-Range M8 Inductive Sensor

Tuesday, April 01, 2008
 
New from Contrinex, Inc., Old Saybrook, CT, is reportedly the world’s smallest packaged M8 inductive sensor. One of the Contrinex 620 range of high-performance inductive sensors, this M8 device, complete with an in-built amplifier, is packaged into a 16-mm-long housing.

The very short length and in-built amplifier of these sensors makes them ideal for embedding into machines and assembly fixtures, especially where sensor access is restricted and longer devices will not fit, says Contrinex. Unlike other available short devices, the overall system design is more compact because there is no requirement for a large support amplifier.

Ruggedly built with an AISI 303 stainless-steel housing and protected to IP67, the sensor can be flush-mounted and has an extended operating distance of 2 mm—twice the distance of standard sensors of this size. This long operating distance means the sensor can be installed a from the target and any moving parts, making it less susceptible to collision damage. In addition, the sensing range is completely stable from -25 to +70 C.
