3 Common Applications for Discrete Output Inductive Proximity Sensors

Written by: Jeff Himes

Discrete (off/on) output inductive proximity sensors are used in a multitude of markets and industries.  The number of inductive sensors sold each year is in the millions.  With that many pieces being sold each year, one has to ask – how are all of these sensors being used?  Their uses break down into 3 common applications.

The 3 most common applications for discrete inductive proximity sensors are:

1.) Machine position verification

2.) Part position verification

3.) Part feature verification

The 3-Tiered Position Sensing Hierarchy

Share/Bookmark

There are three general classes of position sensors that – taken together – form a position sensing hierarchy.  This hierarchy applies to any underlying sensing technology, for example inductive, capacitive, ultrasonic, or photoelectric.  Going from the most basic to the most advanced sensor operation, the hierarchy includes:
