These sensors detect (without contact) the presence of metal objects.
The applications are diverse: rotation control, counting, positioning, presence of parts, etc.
Diversity: the SENSTRONIC range uses advanced technologies (AIS, SFS, high pressure, etc.) to achieve remarkable performance.
These sensors detect (without contact) objects of all kinds (liquids, pastes, powders, bulk solids), whether conductive or not. From the detection of parts to level checking in a tank, capacitive sensor technology has provided excellent results in the food processing, pharmaceutical, cosmetics or automotive industries.
These sensors use a Hall effect sensor, a magnetoresistive sensor or a REED switch. When a magnet (magnetic field) is brought into the vicinity of these sensitive elements the electrical properties of the elements are changed.
Magnetic sensors are mainly used on special purpose machinery, in automatic controls and for packaging and conveyor systems. They are particularly suited to cylinders with integrated detection.
