Proximity sensors are electromagnetic devices that are used in many fields to detect the presence of a metallic object placed before them. These tools
are extremely useful as they can distinguish tools in front of them without any contact. The proximity sensor uses a beam of electromagnetic radiation, which could be infrared or not, or an electromagnetic field then looks for changes in the area or a return signal. Some proximity sensors come in models that have high-frequency oscillation to detect non-metal objects. Other variable versions of the proximity sensor are able to detect different sensing distance meaning that they can see smaller or larger sensing distances that the factory-set value. There are proximity sensors that can also tell between magnetic and non-magnetic items. You may also get some models that are equipped with environment, chemical, water and heat resistance.
