Controls Pvt. Ltd., an established name today in the automation products
industry, has a legacy of 16 long years of quality output. It started with
manufacturing of Inductive Proximity Sensors, Capacitive Proximity Sensors,
Photoelectric Sensors & Color Mark sensors, multifunction counters and
indicators. Subsequently, Print Mark Sensors for Packaging Machines were
added in the product range.
The companys philosophy has always been to make available High
Quality Automation Products to the Indian Users at reasonable prices. As an
extension of this endeavour, Proximon brought Precision Encoders &
Counting Systems of Hengstler, Germany to the Indian market in the year
The long felt need of Indian OEMS, of an Indigenous Reliable SMPS at
attractive prices was fulfilled by the company with its Marathon series
SMPS. Today, it is the only company that manufactures Indigenous SMPS with
All these products are manufactured at the companys state-of-the-art
modern manufacturing facility at Navi Mumbai. A fully equipped design &
engineering facility caters to customized solutions for OEMS.
Our Product Range
Proximons head office is situated at Thane, a
developed Industrial & trade sector near Mumbai. The factory is situated
in Navi Mumbai, which provides close communication & co-ordination
between sales office and production units.
To compliment the marketing force, Proximon has established a country wide
network of qualified resident engineers & experienced dealers at
Ahmedabad, Aurangabad, Bangalore, Bilaspur, Chennai, Coimbatore, Chandigarh,
Delhi, Dewas, Hyderabad, Indore, Jaipur, Kota, Kolkata, Kolhapur, Ludhiana,
Nashik, Pune, Rajkot, Raipur, Surat, Vadodara, and many other places
throughout the country.
Product Facility and Methodology
A team of qualified engineers & technicians
constitute our core manufacturing unit. Although, a vendor is selected after
close scrutiny as per our standard assessment procedure, each incoming
component is thoroughly tested as per quality manual, with the help of test
equipments. A few testing jigs are developed in-house to facilitate
efficient testing & remove non-conforming products at the incoming stage
itself. After vigilant in-process quality control, the finished products
like Inductive Proximity Sensors, multifunction counters and indicators etc.
are again subjected to quality tests as required.
The details on Quality Control & Assurance System adopted in Proximon
is also enclosed. The number of repeat orders and the status of preferred
supplier that we have achieved today, are the result of our technical
expertise and endless efforts to improve and maintain the quality of our
products. The turnover figures and the list of major customers reflect our
motto of manufacturing quality products.
After successfully establishing a market for proximity
sensors through a nation-wide dealers network, Proximon has entered
into the manufacturing of SMPS (Switch Mode Power Supplies). With the
addition of this product, the company is poised to record overall sales
growth of a minimum of 150% in the current year.
quality control of Proximon products starts from basic raw material and
continues right up to all stages of production, down to the finished product
testing & even to final usage, where we extend services to our customer
in the proper handling of Inductive Proximity Sensors and other related
have steadily progressed over a strong infrastructural base, which enables
us to be stable and grow higher to reach the peak of success. Our well
equipped factory enables us to manufacture products in-house with much ease
and precision; helping us fabricate the best for our clients.

Name of quality
The quality control of Proximon products starts from basic raw material and
continue right upto all stages of production down to finished product
testing & even to final usage of where we extend services to our
customer in the proper handling of the product.
Testing of raw material
- All electronic components such as resistors, capacitors, transistors,
diodes, zener diodes, voltage regulator IC's, SCR's, op-amps, special
purpose Ics, etc are checked for acceptance and are shifted to
production department for actual usage.
- As these components are required in huge quantity, the method of
sampling inspection is adapted. The sampling plan is as follows :
- Metallic / plastic enclosures are tested and checked for physical
dimensions such as diameter, pitch, length, and other parameters at the
suppliers site. Necessary gauges & dies are developed by Proximon
and kept at the vendors premises.
- Bare PCBs are manufactured by M/s. Shogini Technoarts Pvt.
Ltd., Pune as per our circuit diagram and PCB artwork. These PCBs
are subject to 100 % inspection for visual inspection such as track
cracks, tinning, dimensions, shorting, etc. The track thickness is
checked by thickness gauge. The track thickness should be minimum 8
To ensure minimum rejection at the final stage and best possible
quality of product, inspection is carried out at various stages of
In-process Quality Control :
Temperature test :
All components are inserted and soldered on PCB.
After this, the populated PCBs are checked for circuit working. The
rejected populated PCBs are sent, for reworking PCBs are kept in
laboratory oven @ 55oC for one hour and then tested for circuit working. The
rejected PCBs are scrapped. The accepted PCBs are then sent for
Vibration test :
PCBs are kept on vibration plate which
vibrates at 50 Hz with 1 mm amplitude. This test help us to find out hidden
dry solders and solder point cracks.
Electrical / other parameter testing :
Sensing distance with respect
to supply voltage, No load current, maximum output current, short circuit
protection, reverse polarity protection, etc is tested. 100 % inspection is
carried out for above mentioned tests. At this stage depending upon specific
requirement of customer, certain tests are carried out ; e.g. in certain
applications customer may be requiring 25 % hysterisis as against standard
10 %. Such instructions are included in the job sheet prepared by the
Accepted PCBs are then sent to the potting area where PCBs are
placed into the metallic/non-metallic housings. Depending upon the product
potting is carried out These potted/unpotted products are then sent to final
inspection stage and then to despatch department.
Finished good Inspection
Following tests are carried out in general. (Other tests are carried out
depending upon specific requirement of customer).
- No load current
- Output current
- Voltage test
- Sensing distance variation
- Short circuit protection
- Reverse polarity protection
- Cable colour code
- Physical dimensions
Non confirming products are scraped immediately.
Accepted switches are then subjected to final heat run test. Here the
switches are kept in ON condition for 3 hours, in OFF condition for 1 hour
and again in ON condition for 3 hours.
The sampling plan is as follows :
- upto 50 nos. => 25% random samples => 2 nos. rejected =>
additional 25 %
- upto 100 nos. => 20 % random samples => 2 nos. rejected =>
additional => 20 %
- More than 100 nos => 15% random samples => 2 nos. rejected =>
To avoid any delay in delivery schedule, due to final stage inspection
: usually 5% more than the order quantity is taken for processing.Note :
Above mentioned tests, specifications varies with respect to the type of
switch/product such as diameter, sensing distance, enclosure configuration,
load technique, load logic, output load requirement, hysterisis, switching
