Pressure resistant up to 500 bar (7255 PSI)

Robust inductive sensors with IO-Link for Industry 4.0 applications Contrinex’s High Pressure range of inductive sensors now features an optional IO-Link interface in PNP NO versions at no extra charge. This enables sensing applications in high-pressure environments to benefit from the control and monitoring functions of Industry 4.0 implementations. At the same time, maintenance costs can be reduced and system availability increased.For inductive sensing in high-pressure environments, a long service life at high operating and peak pressures is essential. Contrinex therefore uses particularly robust technology for its high-pressure resistant Extra Distance and Full Inox models. These sensors operate reliably over practically unlimited pressure cycles and tolerate continuous pressures of 500 bar (7255 PSI).…

Werma expands StockSAVER with “Place-by-light” function

At LogiMAT 2019 in Stuttgart, Werma Signaltechnik presented a clever extension for StockSAVER – which monitors the fill level of FIFO flow racks and automatically triggers replenishment of the materials, as required. With the new optional "Place-by-light" function, replenishment errors can now be eliminated, since the storage bay that needs new materials is clearly indicated. StockSAVER – the third generation Kanban There are already many users who can confirm the benefits of Werma’s StockSAVER. This clever retrofit system uses reporting points in the FIFO flow rack to give full transparency in production logistics. Sensors determine the number of material containers in a storage bay and transmit this status to the software provided with…

We opened a new production hall

Since its inception the company Varga Elektronik to this day, we were guided by the pronouncement of the inventor Thomas Edison that success is 1% luck and 99% hard work. The basis for our overall business is based on these foundations.The company started work in 2005 with only one employee in a garage of a family home and a representation of 6 reputable companies for industrial electronics. After one year, we started cooperation with the Swiss company ETA SA, a member of the world-renowned SWATCH GROUP. Initially, cooperation was based on the production of empty electrical cabinets. Today, after 13 years of successful co-operation, from the production of empty electromagnetics, we came to…

Full Inox Chip-Immune inductive sensors

New inductive sensors for metal machining processes Contrinex announces a new series of Chip-Immune sensors with NPN polarity to complement the existing range of PNP types. As a result, this sensor family is ready not only for metal-machining systems with positive logic (sink current; PNP) but also those with negative logic (source current; NPN). Machines for turning, milling, drilling or grinding metal will inevitably generate abrasion debris. For inductive sensors, which by their nature detect metal objects, this debris presents a difficult challenge. When sensors are covered with lubricant containing metal chips, there is a risk that they will supply incorrect signals to the control system. For these applications, sensor specialist Contrinex now…

The first DIN rail power supplywith an integrated IO-Link port

The power supply is placed at a central nodal point in the system. There is more than just current flowing. A power supply records a significant amount of real-time information that is of particular interest to the operating firm as well as the system manufacturer. This data can help increase system availability and reduce maintenance and operating costs. This means the power supply has the potential – in parallel with its function as a converter – to also act as a sensor and therefore make a significant contribution to the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). The DIMENSION QT40.241-B2 sees PULS bringing to market the first 3-phase DIN rail power supply (24V/40A) that makes…

Photoelectric miniature sensor in place of optical fiber

In some applications, installation space is so limited that there is no room for photoelectric sensors. So optical fibers are often used, despite their higher installation cost. Now Contrinex has developed a new photoelectric sensor which, due to its extremely small size, offers the ideal alternative. The sensor specialist has developed a 4 mm diameter or M5 threaded photoelectric sensor that is ideal for use in the robots, grippers, and small conveyors that must detect very small parts, typically in packaging, logistics, assembly and automation applications. All components of the miniature sensor, from the active light source with optics to the evaluation electronics and IO-Link connection, are combined in a robust stainless steel…
