Information About Inductive Proximity Sensors

inductive sensor

prd12-4-34812-thumb.jpg An inductive sensor detects metallic objects without requiring physical contact with the targets to be sensed. Eaton offers a broad range of robust inductive sensors to suit a wide variety of industrial applications. For non-contact detection of metallic targets at ranges generally under 50mm (2 inches). Inductive proximity sensors emit an alternating electro-magnetic sensing field. When a metal target enters the sensing field, eddy currents are induced in the target, reducing the signal amplitude and triggering a change of state at the sensor output. Advantages of inductive proximity sensors include insensitivity to water, oil, dirt, non-metallic particles, target color, or target surface finish, and the ability to withstand high shock and vibration environments.
