Unformatted text preview: ns of intelligent evaluation provide more information as a whole than an individual sensor. – Use of several human sense organs (smell, taste, optical perception, feeling by tongue) during the intake of food. 1.3 Typical output signals of sensors When using sensors, it is important to know the different types of electrical output signals. Type A Sensors with switching signal output (binary signal output). Examples – Proximity sensors – Pressure sensors – Filling level sensor – Bimetal sensor As a rule, these sensors can be connected directly to programmable logical controllers (PLC). Type B Sensors with pulse rate output. Examples – Incremental length and rotary angle sensors. Generally, PLC-compatible interfaces are available. PLC requirements: Hardware and software counters with the possibility of greater word length. © Festo Didactic GmbH & Co. KG • FP 1110 13 1. General notes Type C Sensor components with analogue output and without integrated amplifier and conversion electronics, which provide very small analogue output signals not for immediate evaluation...
