Modulated light operation
The utilisation of a modulated light beam. © Festo Didactic GmbH & Co. KG • FP 1110 201 13. Technical terms relating to proximity sensors Non-attenuating material
Any material which does not significantly affect the characteristic values of an
inductive proximity sensor.
Non-flush fitting proximity sensors
Sensors that require a free zone when fitted in metal or other materials in order to
maintain the characteristic values of the proximity sensor.
Operating reserve factor
With optical proximity sensors the operating reserve factor β is derived from the
quotient of the actual received optical signal power PE in relation to the necessary
optical signal power PS at the switching level: β = PE/PS
Photoelectronic sensor, optoelectronic sensor
A term generally used for all devices which detect objects via a light source, i.e.
ranging from infrared emissions and visible emission (wavelength range of
380 – 780 nm) to ultraviolet emission (UV).
The light receivi...
