IA 120 Principles of Industrial Sensors Show data sheet (pdf file) Print page
Technical Description

  This training kit can be used to investigate a selection of different sensor types commonly used in industrial automation: Optical, capacitive and inductive proximity switches to record displacement and proximity. These sensors are mounted on a base plate with the relevant accessories. The trigger distance is determined by moving the sensor holder. The base plate is provided with a scale for this purpose. A separate supply unit powers the sensors and displays the switching state by way of light-emitting diodes.
  The well-structured instructional material sets out the fundamentals and provides a step-by-step guide through the experiments.
