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
