Pressure resistant up to 80 bar, food safe and corrosion resistant, these WASHDOWN sensors are available in conventional technology in M12 housings, or in Contrinex’s ‘Extreme’ robust Full Inox Stainless-steel technology, in sizes M12, M18 & M30. 

These Full Inox sensors have a totally impervious one-piece housing, where the front-face and the body are machined from one piece of V4A / AISI 316L stainless-steel – they are therefore highly resistant to the corrosive chemicals used for ‘clean-in-place’ or ‘wash-down’ processes. 

In common with the rest of Contrinex’s ‘Extreme’ sensor family, these sensors are impact and abrasion resistant, even surviving being used to hammer nails in – therefore they minimise the risk of being damaged by impact, for example in confined operating spaces.

Additional benefits like ‘Factor 1’ sensing on steel and aluminium and extended sensing ranges up to 40mm, meet the increasingly demanding sensing needs of the food, beverage and pharmaceutical industries, delivering best-in-class performance with an attractive total cost of ownership.

Key advantages include:

• Housing choice of M12, M18 or M30
• Rated to IP68 and IP69K, ECOLAB®-certified
• One-piece stainless-steel (V4A/AISI 316L) housings
• Extended sensing ranges of up to 40mm
• Detects targets made of the above metals
• Robust: one-piece stainless-steel housing, protection rating IP68 and IP69K
• Temperature range -25 to +85°C (-13 to +185°F)
• IO-Link
