Sensor Basics: A Crash Course in Sensor Types and Terminology
Sensors are a critical component in any factory automation project. Knowing how they work and the terminology used to describe their technology can help, whether you’re learning about this for the first time or wanting a refresher.
This webinar will briefly cover electrical basics like 24V DC power, PNP vs. NPN, connector standards, and presence and measurement sensing. Then you’ll learn the basic principles of inductive, capacitive, photoelectric, magnetic field, and ultrasonic sensors, with a brief mention of other sensor types. You’ll also learn which beginning questions to ask when you’re trying to select the best sensor technology to use in a given application.
Whether you have used sensors for years or are starting your first application, Balluff's Americas Marketing Manager, Will Healy III, will guide you through this fast-paced, 30-minute webinar and will give you the fundamentals of the most commonly used sensing technologies.
