Learn Why Eddy-Current Sensors Are Now Replacing Inductive Sensors and Switches


Particularly where pressure, dirt, oil and high temperatures are present, inductive sensors based on eddy currents from Micro-Epsilon are suitable for all non-contact measurements of displacement, distance, position, oscillation and vibrations. They are characterized by easy operation, high measuring accuracy and an excellent price-performance ratio.

Recent advances in eddy-current sensor design, integration and packaging, as well as overall cost reduction, have made these sensors a much more attractive option. This is especially true where high linearity, high-speed measurements and high resolution are critical requirements.

Benefit from the advantages eddy-current sensors offer:

  • Non-contact measurement of displacement, distance and position on ferro- and non-ferromagnetic materials
  • Ideal for high speed measurements
  • For harsh industrial environments: dirt, pressure, temperature
  • High linearity, resolution and temperature stability
  • Temperature range -40°C to 200°C and higher
  • Resistant to oil, dust & dirt
