Introduction to Sensors Technology

Sensors are the communication managers of automated industrial systems. They collect information about the environment and convert this information into a format that can be used by the system. Sensor selection depends upon what information the automated system needs to acquire. By the end of this course, you will be able to • Define sensors • List the primary types of sensors • Categorize sensors based upon their capabilities • Understand the role of sensors in automated industrial systems • List some typical applications of sensors in automated industrial systems

Proximity Sensors

Proximity sensors are typically designed to determine if an object is near and to communicate that information to another device in an automated system. Some proximity sensors simply detect if an object is present or absent, while others can measure the distance to the object. Other proximity sensors can even detect the color of an object. By the end of this course, you will be able to • Understand proximity sensors • Identify the different types of proximity sensors • Understand the function of proximity sensors • List some typical applications of proximity sensors • Understand the symbology for proximity sensors
