Capacitive Sensors for Displacement, Distance, and Position
In the field of non-contact displacement, distance and position measurement, few alternatives can match the accuracy and stability of capacitive sensors. These sensing devices provide precise results in applications ranging from simple proximity detection to dimensional tolerance inspections in locations ranging from the laboratory to the factory floor. Capacitive sensors operate at high bandwidths for fast measurements and do not touch their targets, eliminating frictional wear and interfering forces associated with other sensing technologies. Furthermore, the capacitive measuring principle is stable in the face of fluctuating temperatures, returning accurate results over a wide operating range.
