Unformatted text preview: ocessing and pre-assembling (housing, connections) are
required. 1.2.3 Sensor system
A sensor system consists of several measuring and evaluating components, often
with a significant proportion of signal processing functions.
The components are often modular and can be interchanged within a product family.
Apart from sensors, signal processors, micro computers and data compatible
interfaces are also available for signal conditioning.
Example – Image processing systems with CCD image sensor,
– Laser measuring systems, identification systems. In the case of signal processing capabilities, one speaks of intelligent sensors or
"smart sensors". 12 © Festo Didactic GmbH & Co. KG • FP 1110 1. General notes 1.2.4 Multi-sensor system
Sensor system with several similar or different types of sensors.
– A temperature and humidity sensor or a pressure and temperature sensor, each
forming part of the same device.
– A combination of several proximity sensors to distinguish shape and material of
– A combination of several chemical sensors for gases, whereby sensors have
overlapping response ranges and by mea...
