The relatively short operating distances of conventional mini sensors, and, as a result, their proximity to moving parts, can lead to mechanical damage and above-average failure rates. The Contrinex series 500 miniature inductive 4-mm diameter and M5 devices now feature an increased operating distance to 2.5-mm. The mini sensors feature:
- Application specific integrated circuit (ASIC) technology.
- The same electrical properties and protection functions as larger sensor types.
