Sensor Technology
   Technology       
   Your choices are...         
   Capacitive Proximity Sensor       Capacitive proximity sensors detect the presence or proximity of a target using capacitive technology. 
   Eddy Current Proximity Sensor       Eddy current proximity sensors and switches detect the proximity or presence of a target by sensing the magnetic fields generated by a reference coil. 
   Inductive Proximity Sensor       Inductive proximity sensors detect the presence or absence of an object using a critical distance. 
   Hall Effect Proximity Sensor       Hall effect proximity sensors are used to detect the proximity, presence or absence of a magnetic object using a critical distance. 
   Magnetic Proximity Sensor       Magnetic proximity sensors include devices that work on inductive, variable reluctance, magnetoresistive or Hall effect principles. These sensors detect the presence or absence of an object using a critical distance. 
   Photoelectric Sensors       Photoelectric sensors use emitters and receivers to detect the presence, absence, or distance of target objects. 
   Ultrasonic Proximity Sensor       Ultrasonic proximity sensors use reflected or transmitted ultrasonic waves to detect the presence or absence of a target component.

Electrical
   Power Requirements       
   Your choices are...         
   AC Powered       The sensor requires an AC voltage. 
   DC Powered       The sensor requires a DC voltage. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Output       
   Your choices are...         
   Voltage       Output voltage is a simple (usually linear) function of the measurement. 
   Current       Often called a transmitter. A current is imposed on the output circuit proportional to the measurement. Feedback is used to provide the appropriate current regardless of line noise, impedance, etc. Useful when sending signals long distances. 
   Frequency       The output signal is encoded via amplitude modulation (AM), frequency modulation (FM), or some other modulation scheme, but the signal is still analog in nature. 
   Resistance       An output consisting of a simple change in resistance is typically for a magnetoresistive device. 
   Switched / Alarm       An "output" of a change in state of switches or alarms

   Load       
   Your choices are...         
   AC Load       Output is an alternating current switched value. 
   DC Load       Output is a direct current switched value.

   DC Load       
   Your choices are...         
   2-Wire       2-Wire DC circuitry typically includes a diode bridge in series with the sensor, allowing functionality either as NPN or PNP in a DC circuit.  Acceptable values of leakage current must be evaluated in this type of circuit. 
   3-Wire NPN       Transistor output that switches the common or negative voltage to the load; the load is connected between the sensor output and positive voltage supply; also referred to as sinking type. 
   3-Wire PNP       Transistor output that switches the positive voltage to the load; the load is connected between the sensor output and the voltage supply common or negative; also referred to as sourcing type. 
   4-Wire NPN       Transistor output that switches the common or negative voltage to the load; the load is connected between the sensor output and positive voltage supply; also referred to as sinking type. 
   4-Wire PNP       Transistor output that switches the positive voltage to the load; the load is connected between the sensor output and the voltage supply common or negative; also referred to as sourcing type.

   Switch Type       
   Your choices are...         
   Normally Open       Switch is 'open' until an object is detected. 
   Normally Closed       Switch is 'closed' until an object is detected. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Interface       
   Your choices are...         
   Serial       A standard digital output protocol (serial) such as RS232, etc. 
   Parallel       A standard digital output protocol (parallel) such as IEEE488, etc.
