Contrinex is a leading manufacturer of sensors for factory automation. The Swiss company, headquartered in Corminboeuf near Fribourg (CH), has a unique and innovative range of products whose features far surpass those of standard sensors. As an innovator of high-tech sensing equipment, Contrinex's business is to provide customers with significant technical advantages that will support their success. Sensors from Contrinex, the leader in intelligent sensor technology, ensure excellent data quality. To communicate that data, all Contrinex inductive and photoelectric ASIC sensors will be equipped with IO-Link as standard. Customers use either the sensor’s binary PNP output or its intelligent IO-Link interface. Both are available in one and the same device. Another advantage is the fact that, with Contrinex sensors, there is no extra charge for IO-Link. This makes them not only quick and simple to install, but also highly economic. As the first standardized IO technology worldwide (IEC 61131-9) for communication with sensors and actuators, IO-Link is crucial to the 4th Industrial Revolution. By installing Contrinex ASIC sensors with IO-Link, users can make themselves fit for the future.
