Contrinex proximity sensor 40 x 40, PNP NO/NC - DW-AS-60A-C44

Embeddable, M12 4-pin, 15 mm Sensing distance

The Contrinex proximity sensor DW-AS-60A-C44 features outstanding noise protection and stable sensing performance due to its specialized sensor IC developed by Contrinex. This sensor comes in a rectangular shape, sensing distance of 15mm, housing size is 40 x 40 mm (C44), and shield (flush) installation. The standard cylindrical inductive sensor can be used in diverse applications requiring non-contact detection of metallic objects.

As a quick report, this inductive proximity sensor provides:

  • 40 x 40 mm housing size diameter
  • PNP Changeover (NO/NC) control output
  • 15 mm sensing distance
  • Embeddable (flush) installation
  • Long life cycle and simple operations
  • protections against short-circuits and voltage reversal
  • IP 68 / IP 69K ingress protection structure according to IEC standards
  • Red LED status indicator


This Contrinex proximity sensor's case and nut parts are made of PA GF.

The DW-AS-60A-C44 features IP 68, IP 69K ingress protection.

The LED on its body acts as the process indicator.


The Contrinex square proximity sensor DW-AS-60A-C44 features a 4-pin M12 electrical connection.

Sensing specifications

This inductive sensor's housing size diameter is 40 x 40 mm. This sensor's maximum distance to detect its standard sensing target, which is a 45x45x1 mm piece of iron, is 15 mm. This so-called sensing distance differs from one sensing target to another, based on their material, size, etc. You could find out the sensing distance in Contrinex proximity sensors with a correction factor, mentioned in their datasheet.

This sensor also features 0.75 mm repeat accuracy.

Control output

The DW-AS-60A-C44 features PNP Changeover (NO/NC) control output. PNP stands for Positive-Negative-Positive transistors.


The ambient temperature range that the DW-AS-60A-C44 square proximity sensor works properly in is -25 … 85°C.

Industries / applications:

  • Tool selection automated production lines
  • Robotic position-sensing
  • Control of micro-mechanisms

BASIC Proximity sensors

Contrinex BASIC inductive sensors have a worldwide and well-deserved reputation for uncompromising accuracy and exceptional reliability. With best-in-class sensing distances between 1.5 mm and 40 mm, the Contrinex BASIC range offers fit-and-forget operation, delivering world-class performance and a highly attractive total cost of ownership. Available in sizes from M8 to M30 and C44, with optional Ø 6.5 plain and 8 mm square-section models, BASIC range inductive sensors are ideal for general position-sensing and presence-sensing applications in almost any industry. Embeddable or non-embeddable variants are available, with either hard-wired, hermetically sealed connecting cables or integral metal connectors. BASIC range devices, whether from the conventional Classics, or the advanced Extra Distance or Full Inox technology families, all utilize Contrinex application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs) that ensure highly repeatable results at operating temperatures between -25°C and +70°C. An IO-Link interface is also available for communication in PNP NO versions.

BASIC Sensors Main features

  • Excellent price performance ratio
  • Deviation in operating distance ≤2%
  • Outstanding temperature compensation
  • IO-Link
