A proximity sensor is a non-contact sensing device that uses electromagnetics to sense the presence of an object. They are well suited for industrial and harsh environment applications as they feature rugged construction with longer service life, have higher temperature tolerances, and their operation is not affected by liquids, oil or dust. Inductive proximity sensors are used to detect metal targets while Capacitive proximity sensors are used to detect plastic, liquid and organic targets.
