Operating principle of inductive sensors
Inductive sensors belong to the category of position sensors and are often also referred to as proximity switches. These sensors are very robust and operate to the law of inductance. Inductive sensors can reliably detect metallic objects without contact and are used for the detection and/or positioning of processes in industrial automation.
Consequently there are numerous applications for inductive sensors such as:
- Factory automation
- Packaging and handling technology
- Machine building
A typical application is for example end position monitoring and positioning in machine and plant construction.
