Inductive sensors, sometimes in special versions, are used in various applications and industries.
Below you can find information about special sensors and an overview of possible application areas and industries.
Inductive sensors are used in the process industry, e.g., as components for linear valves and as traditional proximity sensors.
Sensor technology for automated process plants
Inductive sensors are often used in vehicles, i.e., in mobile equipment, for tasks such as position monitoring or end position monitoring of swivel arms, gripping arms, and dump bodies.
Sensors for commercial vehicles
Wind turbines require a variety of control and monitoring information. Inductive sensors are used in many sizes and versions to detect the movement of the pitch slew ring, the drive gears, and the service winch.
Sensors for renewable energies
Inductive sensors are used in the field of warehousing and material handling to check final position feedback of lifting arms. Likewise, they can be used for final position detection in Auto-Guided Transport Systems and for fork extension monitoring (position monitoring) in material handling equipment.
Sensors for warehousing and material handling
Outside of the packaging industry, a wide range of requirements exist in the pharmaceutical, cosmetics, food, and consumer goods industries. Suitable inductive sensors are available for machine control for these industries.
Sensors for packaging technology
Inductive sensors are used in the printing industry for tasks such as position detection in web fed printing, for end stop detection in punching, etc.
