  • Criteria for the Selection of the Proper Distance Sensor Technology
    An efficient selection of the proper sensor technology for distance measurement becomes more and more important. Continuously increasing requirements to machine capacity and reduced budgets requires a lot of experience especially as regards the selection of the proper measurement process to be able
  • Going the (Short) Distance With Wireless
    only has to travel a few feet. Wireless traditionally has been thought of as a way to send signals 1 to 3 miles. But it also provides advantages in short-distance applications occasions in which I/O must be transmitted some 200 ft from one side of the plant to another, or even from room to room
  • Application: Linear Distance Measurement Sensor (.pdf)
    Often these measuring devices used a walking device having a wheel that translates circular motion into a linear distance. These devices used a mechanical means to establish the distance. These mechanical devices did not always prove reliable and would often fail at the most inappropriate times.
  • Sensor Sense: Advances in inductive sensing - Factor 1 sensors
    with different metal types. Each material reacts differently to the electromagnetic field and thus affects the range at which the sensor can detect that material. The sensor must get closer to a copper part than to one made of stainless steel. These variations call for adjusting the distance between
  • Analog Distance Measurement Photoelectric Sensors
    Now that high performance sensors are more affordable than ever, many manufacturers today are looking for ways to improve their industrial process control without investing a lot of time and money. Measurement sensing technology has stabilized in price due to manufacturing improvements
  • Operating Principles for Inductive Proximity Sensors
    causes a dampening of the oscillation amplitude. The rise or fall of such oscillation is identified by a threshold circuit that changes the output of the sensor. The operating distance of the sensor depends on the actuator's shape and size and is strictly linked to the nature of the material (Table
  • Operating Principles for Capacitive Proximity Sensors
    distance from the sensitive side of the sensor, an electronic circuit inside the sensor begins to oscillate. The rise or the fall of such oscillation is identified by a threshold circuit that drives an amplifier for the operation of an external load. A screw placed on the backside of the sensor allows
  • Sensors get smarter
    to distance. Sensors with traditional analog outputs are still widely used for displacement feedback. However, demand for digital smart sensors continues upward. Constant pressure to increase productivity and reduce installation and maintenance costs has led to a need for smart plug-and-play
