Inductive Sensors Selection

Inductive proximity sensors use Faraday’s law of induction to indicate an object’s presence or an analog output position. The most critical aspect of selecting an inductive sensor is determining the type of metal the sensor is detecting, which determines sensing distances. Nonferrous metals can reduce the sensing range by more than 50% compared to ferrous metals. Sensor manufacturer data sheets should provide the necessary information for sample selection.
