Inductive Sensor

For measuring the rotation speed

Further types

Inductive Sensor

Basic information

The inductive sensor acquires the speed of electric motors, delivering a speed-proportional output signal to the controller electronics.

Applications

  • Electric motors
  • Generators

General function

The inductive sensor executes a contact-free scanning of a rotating magnetized part on the motor/generator.
An electrical analog signal is generated by the electromagnetic induction sensor and processed by the control electronics.

Advantages

  • Non-wearing
  • No moving parts
  • Largely independent from temperature and pressure in the environment
  • Very economic
