General notes Detecting materials Application for material detection, e.g. for providing or sorting material (re-cycling). Fig. 1.6.5: Distinguishing materials Defining direction Application for defining the direction of linear or rotary movement, e.g. defining
direction for parts sorting. Fig. 1.6.6: Directional sensing There are inductive sensors, which only detect the movement of an object in one
direction, but not the opposite direction ("Idle return function", see chapter 15). © Festo Didactic GmbH & Co. KG • FP 1110 21 1. General notes Monitoring tools Tool monitoring applications.
