There are ring sensors and tube sensors for various applications in different technical designs. Ring sensors are designed to detect a metallic object that is guided through the ring-shaped sensing element contained within the sensor, as opposed to other inductive sensors with external sensing areas. Inductive ring sensors and tube sensors are commonplace in automation and work on the principle of induction. The sensors generate an electromagnetic field and measure influences on it. If a metallic part passes through the detection zone, it is detected based on the changes made to the field. Thanks to their design, they offer high resolution and a short response time. Inductive ring and tube sensors are manufactured in both static and dynamic versions. Static sensors work well for stow control or for the detection of relatively large metallic parts such as screws, nails and nuts. To detect small parts the dynamic version of the sensors is better suited.
