March 28, 2019 – The AutomationDirect line of inductive proximity sensors now includes additional harsh-duty sensors and new standard-duty sensors with quadruple sensing ranges.

Contrinex DW series 4mm, 5mm, 8mm and 12mm diameter round body inductive proximity sensors have been added.

Intended for harsh duty applications, 4mm smooth and 5mm (M5 threaded) models are available with full stainless steel housings.

The 8mm and 12mm diameter DW series sensor models are now available with quadruple sensing ranges. The 8mm M8 sensor has a 4mm (shielded) sensing distance and the 12mm M12 sensor has an 8mm (shielded) sensing distance.


DW series proximity sensors have an LED status indicator and are available with NPN or PNP, Normally Open or Normally Closed outputs. DW series sensors are IP67 protection rated and provide complete overload protection. All sensors are cULus approved, CE compliant and have a lifetime warranty.
