Proximity sensors are a type of sensors that can detect nearby objects or targets without physical contact. The sensors use electromagnetic radiation beams such as infrared, to look for changes in the returning signal’s field. Proximity sensors are designed with different sensors that target different kinds of proximity targets. Examples of proximity sensors include inductive proximity sensors, photoelectric proximity sensors, capacity proximity sensors, Doppler Effect sensors, magnetic sensors, laser rangefinders sensors, sonar sensors, ultrasonic sensor
and fiber optics sensors. There are various accessories for proximity sensors, including touch switches which are used to adjust the sensor for very short-range detection. Proximity sensor accessories include mounting brackets, rods and flanges, spare hex nuts
, adapters, protection caps, cordsets, initiator testers, snap clamps, receivers, and transmitters. Most proximity sensors are made of single silicon semiconductor material which is excellently machinable, with good mechanical stability and allows the easier combination of electronic parts and the sensor elements.Let MRO Supply be your single source convenience for all industrial products including supplies, tools and equipment.
