Inductive proximity sensors
Inductive proximity sensors - also called eddy current sensors - are used for contactless measurement of distances to electromagnetically conductive objects. They measure the energy pull of a coil, which is caused by the eddy current losses of the magnetic field on the surface of the object to be measured. The advantages of this measuring principle lie in the absolutely wear-free measuring principle, the high dynamic bandwidth, as well as the insensitivity to contamination and media such as oil or lubricants. They are therefore frequently used in the field of machine monitoring.
In addition to the standard sensors, MESSOTRON also offers the MNH series of high temperature sensors, which are identical in construction to the former model series AEG 1001 etc., as well as to the Philips/EPRO types 6423 etc.. Special versions can be offered on request.
