Mouser Electronics Now Stocking Molex Contrinex Industry 4.0 Inductive and Photoelectric Sensors

October 29, 2019 – Mouser Electronics, Inc., the industry’s leading New Product Introduction (NPI) distributor with the widest selection of semiconductors and electronic components, is now stocking Contrinex inductive and photoelectric sensors from Molex. The miniature sensors are ideal for applications such as packaging machines, food and beverage, filling plant, textile, machine tools, and logistics.

Molex Contrinex inductive and photoelectric sensors, available from Mouser Electronics, are robust, self-contained sensors with an integrated IO-Link in a compact housing. Part of Molex’s range of Industry 4.0 solutions, the sensors feature a large sensing range and are ideal for limited space applications and challenging environments.

Contrinex inductive sensors offer a long sensing distance range of 1 mm to 40 mm, which reduces the risk of sensor damage from close objects. The inductive sensors feature one-piece, factor-1 steel and aluminum housing, IP67- and IP69K-rated enclosure, and 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 1 mm to 50,000 mm. The IP67- and Ecolab-rated devices feature excellent color and contrast recognition, a diffuse sensor with background suppression, and UV light technology for transparent object detection. To support development, Mouser also stocks a selection of photoelectric sensor hardware from Molex.
