Position Sensors

There are a wide range of different types of position sensor. Typically position sensors are non-contact sensors that are capable of detecting and measuring a position without requiring actual contact, and they also prevent any potential wear and tear in the specific application. Inductive sensors have become indispensable within many industries. They are typically non-contact, offer high frequency switching and excellent degrees of accuracy. Capacitive sensors can detect metallic and non-metallic materials. Magnetic sensors are a type of position sensor that use magnetic fields to penetrate any non-magnetisable material. Another type of position sensor is an ultrasonic sensor. These offer precise distance measurements for a range of solids and fluids. They have the benefit of offering continuous measurement. Position sensors are found in a variety of applications. Typical uses are found in the glass, paper, food and chemical industries. Non-contact position sensors are reliable and extremely precise.
