Magnetic Proximity Sensors
Magnetic proximity sensors are used for non-contact position detection beyond the normal limitations of inductive sensors. Combined with a separate “damping” magnet, magnetic proximity sensors provide a very long sensing range and can detect magnets through walls of non-ferrous metals, stainless steel, aluminum, plastic, or wood. They are used in many industrial applications for non-contact current sensing, linear and angular position, and rotational sensing. Datavision magnetic proximity sensors are designed to provide superior performance in all of these applications.
