surfaces. 15.1.7 Inductive proximity sensors with high switching frequency
Inductive proximity sensors generally have a maximum switching frequency which is
in the range between 500 Hz and 5 kHz, whereby the smaller designs operate at the
highest frequencies. Large designs with switching distances in excess of 20 mm can
have switching frequencies of less than 50 Hz. High switching frequencies are for
instance required for the sensing of fast rotating parts. Products are available with
switching frequencies of up to 20 kHz. © Festo Didactic GmbH & Co. KG • FP 1110 231 15. Special designs and variants of proximity sensors 15.1.8 Inductive proximity sensors with idle return function
Directional inductive sensors have two adjacent active zones. If an object passes
these two zones, then the proximity sensor only registers the object moving in a
certain direction, but not in the opposite direction. The basic requirement for this is
that the object to be sensed fully traverses the active zones both in the counting and...
