Inductive proximity sensors are used for non-contact detection of metallic objects. Their operating principle is based on a coil and oscillator that creates an electromagnetic field in the close surroundings of the sensing surface. The presence of a metallic object (actuator) in the operating area...

...be suitable for a plastic target; an inductive sensor requires a metal target. In capacitive proximity sensors, the sensed object changes the dielectric constant between two plates. Sensing range is usually quoted relative to water. Because changes in capacitance take a relatively long time...

Inductive sensors and resistance welding Resistance welding is known to create electromagnetic interference at levels high enough to falsely trigger inductive proximity sensors. Inductive proximity detectors used near welding applications require special coil and core combinations to prevent false...

When sensing metal objects, sometimes the standard inductive proximity sensor simply doesn't cut it. For instance when sensing a rotary cam - the oblong shape necessitates a sensor that can detect the different shapes/sizes and where the object is within the sensing range....

Inductive proximity sensors detect metal objects without touching them. Factor 1 inductive sensors have at least two coils in their design. One technique connects the first coil to an oscillator circuit while the other coil is part of an impedance circuit that controls the amplitude...

The addition of analog sensors to pneumatic grippers gives new intelligence about the health and well being of automated processes. A wedge-shaped target is visible in this view of a pneumatic gripper holding sheeted material. When used with an analog inductive proximity sensor, the wedge serves...

...and oscillation amplitudes return to normal levels. Those target materials have little effect on electromagnetic fields, so inductive proximity sensors are useless in these situations. The sensing field must change from the electromagnetic domain to the electrostatic domain; the inductive proximity sensor...

They are not threshold-type devices, like proximity sensors, which only determine if an object is present and whether it has moved to or passed a specified location. These sensors are also classified as either absolute or incremental (relative) sensors. Absolute sensors generate the same output after a power...

Traditional inductive proximity sensors are designed for wear-free and non-contact detection of metal objects. The sensor consists of a coil and ferrite core arrangement, an oscillator and detector circuit, and a solid-state output. They operate with a highfrequency electromagnetic field...
