Unformatted text preview: le is based on the induced linkage of the sensor coils when a tool is introduced. Diameters from 1 – 25 mm can be monitored. Tools are checked for availability on actuation of the upper or lower sensing level. 1 2 3 4 5 6 Incorporated limit valve (1) Upper sensing point (3) Mounting plate (5) Lower sensing point (2) Sensors (4) Workpiece (6) Fig. 15.1.11: Proximity sensors to monitor drill breakage (Source: Euchner) © Festo Didactic GmbH & Co.
