Available from stock at Mouser Electronics, the Molex Contrinex ranges of inductive and photoelectric sensors are ideal for Industry 4.0 applications such as packaging machines, food and beverage, filling plant, textile, machine tools, and logistics.

The robust, self-contained sensors come with an IO-Link interface integrated in a compact housing. All devices feature a large sensing range and are ideal for limited space applications and challenging environments.

Contrinex inductive sensors offer a long sensing distance range from 1 to 40mm, which reduces the risk of sensor damage from close objects. The inductive sensors feature one-piece housings, IP67- and IP69K-rated enclosures, and high vibration and shock resistance, making them suitable for harsh and wet environments.

The Contrinex photoelectric sensors are available in cubic and cylindrical housings working on diffuse, reflex, and through-beam operating principles, with sensing distances ranging from 1mm to 50m. The IP67- and Ecolab-rated devices feature excellent colour and contrast recognition, a diffuse sensor with background suppression, and UV light technology for transparent object detection.

Mouser also stocks a selection of photoelectric sensor hardware from Molex.
