• Offer Profile
  • Contrinex is a leading manufacturer of inductive and photoelectric sensors. The Swiss company, with headquarters in Givisiez, has developed a unique range of products whose performance far exceeds that of standard devices. Since its foundation in 1972, Contrinex has grown from a one-man concern into a small multi-national Group employing over 500 people worldwide. However, it still concentrates exclusively on the development, manufacturing and sales of sensing equipment for industrial applications.
Product Portfolio
  • ALL Products

    • Inductive sensors

    • Inductive sensors only detect metal parts. They are thus insensitive to dirt. Contrinex inductive sensors are particularly suited to tough environmental conditions.
    • Photoelectric sensors

    • Photoelectric sensors work with light, which results in long operating distances. They detect conducting and non-conducting materials, and are best suited for adaption to specific applications.
    • Ultrasonic sensors

    • Ultrasonic sensors may be used wherever distances have to be measured in air. They detect transparent as well as colored targets in the solid, liquid, granular or powder state.
    • Capacitive sensors

    • Capacitive sensors are suitable for applications where non-conducting, transparent objects have to be detected, or where a clear difference in dielectric properties exclusively distinguishes the target from its background.
    • RFID

    • RFID (Radio Frequency IDentification) allows objects to be identified by means of electronic labels (transponders or tags). Contrinex all-metal RFID systems are particularly suitable for tough environmental conditions.
    • Safety

    • Safety light curtains are used wherever risks cannot be eliminated through machine design. A person or any part of the body entering a danger zone is detected by the light curtain, leading to immediate machine stoppage.
    • Connectivity

    • Contrinex offers cable-distribution systems, as well as quick-lock, sealed metal and standard connectors.
    • Accessories

    • Save time on installation and ensure perfect sensor stability by using Contrinex sensor clamps and clamp bases.
