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. Example – 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 workpieces. – A combination of several chemical sensors for gases, whereby sensors have overlapping response ranges and by mea...
