Inductive Proximity Sensors For non-contact detection of metallic targets at shorter ranges

  • Overview

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:

  • Ignores water, oil, dirt, and non-metallic particles
  • Insensitive to target color or target surface finish
  • Short-circuit resistant
  • Withstands high shock and vibration environments
