Sensors perform an essential frontline data-collecting role which enables both industrial and everyday technologies to complete their intended functions. Moreover, a well-designed sensor must detect only the target property to be measured – and without influencing that property in any way. Market-leading international brands such as E+E Elektronik, Novotechnik, Omron, Panasonic, Pepperl+Fuchs, Sick and many others produce a host of quality products which more than meet such demands. A comprehensive range of sensing equipment is available, covering applications capturing information such as position/angle, pressure and temperature data; sensing electrical or magnetic properties; and gathering data on moisture or gas/liquid flows. Designs can be sourced in different sizes and materials, with broad or narrow capture ranges, and with varying levels of sensitivity and output resolution. Sensor combination packages (including applications with varied routing options for multiple input/outputs), probe type detectors, and cable sensors for networks are all obtainable from stock. In addition, a broad selection of voltages and other output modes can be supported, including (where appropriate) the conversion of analogue signals to digital formats or the use of USB connectivity for data transmission.
