Proximity Sensors

Proximity sensors are used across a broad range of industrial and manufacturing applications to sense the presence of objects or materials. These sensors able to initiate actions or note the presence or absence of certain objects. Proximity sensors don’t require physical contact with the target or object being sensed, which gives them their ‘non-contact’ sensor nickname. The most common types of proximity sensors include ultrasonic sensors,photoelectric sensors, and inductive sensors. KEYENCE proximity sensors are able to detect distance twice that of conventional sensors, and offer 24-hour high-speed, high-accuracy monitoring and detection, and in so doing preventing defective products from being produced.
