Inductive proximity switches with analogue output
In addition to purely switching sensors, your sensor specialist EGE also offers you inductive proximity switches with analogue output for measuring tasks. The analogue signal is proportional to the approximation of the metal part. This sensor is also available in a version up to 160° C. The proximity sensor is based on the proven inductive principle: When metallic objects come close, the resonant circuit of a coil is dampened through induction and an analogue signal generated from it. Analogue inductive are e.g. suitable for the double occupation control of metal plates, for the tensioning control of wire or for monitoring metallic brake pads.
