Because they make products for human consumption, food and beverage manufacturers require specialized sensing solutions that are not only highly accurate and reliable, but also food safe. Furthermore, these sensors must be able to withstand washdown environments and frequent exposure to chemical cleaning agents. This might seem like a tall order, but our long-time distribution partner Contrinex offers a unique photoelectric sensor that’s tailor-made for the unique demands of food and beverage manufacturing operations.
The C23 photoelectric sensors with IO-Link and Ecolab certification are ideal for food-safe operations.
These photoelectric sensors feature a robust miniature plastic housing and water resistance rating of IP67. This allows them operate reliably in demanding washdown environments without regular intervention from technicians. Thanks to their IO-Link connectivity, they can also be easily integrated into a plant-wide control system. Their sensitivity can even be adjusted remotely with no manual intervention, thereby eliminating the need for re-sterilization between product batches. Perhaps most importantly, the C23’s food safety compliance is guaranteed by its industry-recognized Ecolab certification.
If you’re looking for a dependable food-safe sensing solution, Contrinex’s C23 photoelectric sensors are a great place to start.
