SPS IPC Drives: Safety sensors for operator protection

SPS IPC Drives: Safety sensors for operator protection
Safety systems for the protection of personnel are this year’s hot topic for Contrinex at SPS IPC Drives in Nuremberg, Hall 7A, Stand 406. Highlights include the unveiling of two new series of safety sensors, certified category 4 according to ISO 13849-1. Types are available with magnetic or RFID coding, which ensures immunity to mutual interference, and also largely eliminates the risk of tampering.

Contrinex sensors specially designed for food industry

Contrinex sensors specially designed for food industry
Contrinex has developed a range of rugged inductive sensors that has been specifically designed for dealing with the hazardous environments found in the food industry. Although the food handling process itself does not always present an aggressive environment, the cleaning and wash-down routines required to meet hygiene standards usually involve caustic chemicals that can cause severe damage to control sensors.

Contrinex two-wire sensors save on installation and running costs

Contrinex two-wire sensors save on installation and running costs
In large production plants such as found in dairies, breweries and food processing and automotive manufacturing plants there are major technical issues resulting from long cable runs and, because cable prices have quadrupled over the past five years, there are also major cost issues.

Contrinex sensors designed for hot stuff

Contrinex sensors designed for hot stuff
Many manufacturing processes such as furnaces, steel plants, casting machines, engine control, foundries, heat treatment plants, plastic moulding machines, food processing and cooking and baking lines run at temperatures well above 70°C at which most conventional feedback sensors begin to malfunction and fail. Contrinex, the Swiss sensor specialist, has introduced a new range of high temperature inductive proximity switches that is designed specifically for use in such demanding conditions and will reduce costly downtime.

Weld-immune sensors from Contrinex keep production lines running

Weld-immune sensors from Contrinex keep production lines running
Automated welding fixtures operate under the toughest possible conditions being subject to frequent and hard physical knocks, metal spray from welding processes and severe and frequent heat cycling. In addition, the intense levels of RFI created will cause the majority of inductive sensors to malfunction and, in some cases, change output status. In industries like automotive manufacture large numbers of welding cells and fixtures are expected to achieve high levels of reliability to meet production targets and sensors can be a weak link in the quest for uninterrupted production.

Contrinex sets new benchmark for background suppression sensors

Contrinex sets new benchmark for background suppression sensors
Diffuse background suppression (BGS) photoelectric sensors are used in applications where accurate differentiation between the target and potentially interfering backgrounds is essential. As with all such set-ups, when using this technique it is vital that only the target is sensed, regardless of the colour, surface and shape of the background and target.
