Inductive Sensors

Ideal for general position-sensing and presence-sensing applications in almost any industry

Contrinex BASIC inductive sensors have a worldwide and well-deserved reputation for uncompromising accuracy and exceptional reliability. With best-in-class sensing distances between 1.5 mm and 40 mm, the Contrinex BASIC range offers fit-and-forget operation, delivering world-class performance and a highly attractive total cost of ownership. Available in sizes from M8 to M30 and C44, with optional Ø 6.5 plain and 8 mm square-section models, BASIC range inductive sensors are ideal for general position-sensing and presence-sensing applications in almost any industry.
Embeddable or non-embeddable variants are available, with either hard-wired, hermetically sealed connecting cables or integral metal connectors. BASIC range devices, whether from the conventional Classics, or the advanced Extra Distance or Full Inox technology families, all utilize Contrinex application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs) that ensure highly repeatable results at operating temperatures between -25°C and +70°C. An IO-Link interface is also available for communication in PNP NO versions.
