Leading Sensor Technology for Machine Monitoring


Eddy current sensors belong to the group of inductive displacement sensors and are ideal for industrial applications. Eddy current sensors are ideal for monitoring machinery and equipment because they can also measure in harsh industrial environments with pressure, dirt or temperature fluctuations. In contrast to conventional inductive sensors, the measuring principle of eddy current sensors enables measurements on non-ferromagnetic materials (e.g. aluminum) as well as on ferromagnetic materials (e.g. steel). The sensors offer extremely accurate, non-contact and wear-free measurements of displacement, distance, position, vibration, oscillation and thickness.
