Contrinex C23 miniature photoelectric sensors with precision background suppression
Remote sensitivity adjustment improves manufacturing productivity
Swiss sensor specialist Contrinex announces enhanced sensitivity-adjustment features for its high-performing C23 photoelectric sensors with background-suppression mode. Mounted in 20mm x 30mm x 10mm miniature plastic housings, C23 sensors are available with industry-standard IO-Link connectivity on all PNP versions, enabling remote adjustment of sensitivity and other operating parameters.
A simple one or two-step teach procedure, available on all C23 background-suppression variants, simplifies initial sensor set-up. One-button operation allows process engineers to teach the target object and, optionally, the background. ‘Taught’ sensitivity parameters, stored on the sensor’s inbuilt memory, may be retrieved or updated remotely via IO-Link.
Remote sensitivity adjustment is invaluable in fast-moving process manufacturing, where minimizing downtime is a priority. Plant operators increase productivity by writing new sensitivity values to each sensor’s memory between successive product batches, eliminating the need for technicians to attend machines. IO-Link connectivity facilitates plant-wide control of all key processes.
