Sensing Transducers

Sensing transducers use two main types of sensors. These are an electromagnetic sensor or a piezoelectric sensor. The first senses and measures change using electromagnetic fields. The second type of type measures changes in acceleration, force, pressure or temperature and converts this into an electrical charge. Therefore, sensing transducers broadly sit within two categories: electromagnetic transducers and Piezo transducers. The supply voltage, minimum and maximum, determines the potential application use of the transducer. These can be used in a range of domestic and industrial applications. Displacement and proximity transducers are also used in an extensive number of applications. The various types of sensing transducers have many uses in domestic and industrial applications. From alarm, indicator and receiving applications to a variety of automation and robotics applications.
