The oscillator coil consists of a ferrite ring core with internal coil. The oscillator is
attenuated as soon as an electrically conductive object enters the ring.
Ring proximity sensors are suitable for instance for contactless sensing of small
metal parts, which are transported via a conveyor tube, whereby the conveyor tube
passes through the ring sensor. Fig. 15.1.9: Ring type proximity sensor Example Proximity sensors with an internal diameter of 10 mm, 15 mm, 21 mm and 43 mm. © Festo Didactic GmbH & Co.

Slot proximity sensors are in the shape of a fork, where two oscillator coils are
placed opposite one another. The proximity sensor responds to metallic objects in
the space between the fork, similar to a light barrier sensor. Proximity sensors of
this type are used in applications where constant accurate reproducibility of the
switching point is required even if the line of movement of the object varies slightly.

Inductive sensors are also available for monitoring drill breakage, whereby drills,
taps or reamers are monitored for fracture during the working process. The princip...
