New! Contrinex enhanced ranges of weld-immune inductives

07 December 2021

Contrinex's new additions to its Weld-Immune family of inductive proximity sensors, introduce weld-immune versions into the Series 600 technology family, which are capable of withstanding high-intensity magnetic fields.

Featuring the Condet technology, both the new Series 600 sensors and the existing Series 700 Full Inox devices are true Factor 1 sensors, sensing targets in steel and aluminium equally effectively, with no reduction in sensing distance.

The sensors resist the strong magnetic fields in welding cells or other environments with high-intensity magnetic fields, whilst offering increased operating ranges. The new lower-cost 600 Series sensors offer the same sensing distance as their 700 Series stainless steel sisters of up to 8mm.

For applications directly exposed to weld spatter, the sensors are available with an ACTIVSTONE coating, a high-performance ceramic layer that provides high robustness in MIG, MAG and spot-welding applications. 
Custom-designed, ACTIVSTONE-coated accessories, including fixing nuts and mounting brackets, resist the accumulation of weld spatter and withstand frequent wire-brush cleaning.

Heavy-duty PUR cables and optional high-temperature-rated spatter-resistant shrouding prevent cable damage.
Combining high durability in harsh environments with an extended working life, Contrinex’s enhanced Weld-Immune sensor range is a highly affordable, risk-free option for systems integrators and equipment designers in diverse industries, including automotive, aerospace, electronics and white goods.
