electrical wires and cables Capacitive proximity sensors react to copper containing electrical wires or cables of
relatively small diameter, whereas inductive proximity sensors react at a smaller
switching distance or not at all. Optical proximity sensors too may fail in this
instance. Fig. 5.4.4: Monitoring for cable breakage by means of a capacitive proximity sensor Checking the presence of
bulbs inside assembled
cardboard boxes A capacitive proximity sensor checks whether each box travelling past contains a
light bulb. Fig. 5.4.5: Checking the presence of bulbs inside cardboard boxes (Source: Turck) 68 © Festo Didactic GmbH & Co. KG • FP 1110 5. Capacitive proximity sensors 5.5
