Typical Inductive sensors

Because of their functional principle, inductive sensors are only suitable for detecting metal objects. But they do this extremely reliably and are also very robust and resistant (e.g. regarding environmental factors), which makes them interesting for numerous industrial applications. They are mainly used wherever the detection of uniform movements is involved – for example as proximity switches for determining the position of transported machine parts such as saddles or hydraulic cylinders, for measuring rotary speeds on vehicle crankshafts, or as pulse generators for motor ignition.


  • Reliable detection of metallic objects
  • Product variants for standard or three-fold switching distances
  • Robust barrel type or cuboid metal housing options
  • Simple installation thanks to integrated metric threads
  • Different designs for flush, quasi-flush and non-flush mounting
