Proximity Sensors

Proximity sensors are a type of sensor that can detect the presence of nearby objects without any physical contact. They can work over a variety of sensing ranges and are commonly used in industrial, automotive, and electronic applications.

Inductive proximity sensors are designed to detect metallic objects without direct contact. They operate based on the principle of electromagnetic induction. When a metallic object comes into the sensor's electromagnetic field, eddy currents are generated on the metal object's surface, which alters the resonant frequency of the oscillator circuit inside the sensor. This change is detected, and the sensor outputs an electrical signal indicating the presence of the metal object.

Capacitive proximity sensors can detect both metallic and non-metallic objects such as plastic, wood, liquid, and grain. They function based on the electrical capacity of the object being sensed. Essentially, the sensor and the object form two plates of a capacitor, and the variation in capacitance due to the object's proximity is detected and converted into a switching signal.

Eaton E51KH3 - The Glass Fiber Optic Cables enable light transmission through a bundle of fine glass fibers, offering flexibility to curve through equipment while minimizing signal loss. Two cable types are available: Duplex fibers for diffuse reflective sensing, where one cable is required for sensing, and single fibers for thru-beam sensing, necessitating two separate cables for source and detector light. These cables are designed for remote sensing in space-restricted or tight viewing angle areas and can withstand high temperatures up to 480°F. They come in various styles and lengths, with options for PVC or stainless steel jackets, catering to different application needs. Larger fiber bundles offer increased excess gain for longer sensing ranges, while smaller sizes are ideal for detecting extremely small targets. The Glass Fiber Optic Cables provide a versatile solution for diverse sensing requirements. -
