Operating principle of inductive sensors
Inductive sensors - a form of position sensor often referred to as proximity switches - are very robust and operate by law of induction. 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
Inductive sensors typically aid in end-position monitoring and positioning in machine and plant construction, among other purposes.
