PopisNon-contact linear sensors have an analogue output that is proportional to the target distance. Their compact yet sturdy design makes them well-suited for industrial, robotics and laboratory use. These sensors utilise inductive technology, which means they are capable of sensing any metal target. The sensing distance, however, is influenced by the metal target. Ranges are calibrated using a standard square target. The target is mild steel (Fe 360), 1 mm thick. The side lengths are the larger of either the sensor’s face diaphragm or three times the sensing distance.
