Proximity And Displacement Sensors Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends And Forecast, 2013 - 2019
By - Transparency Market Research
Displacement sensors measure the distance an object moves and they can also be used to measure object height and width. There are two types of displacement sensors namely contact types which utilize a differential transformer, dial gage, etc. and non-contact types which utilize a laser beam, magnetic field, ultra-sonic wave, etc. Proximity sensors are switches or sensing devices which can detect a nearby, specific object without actual contact. There are three types of proximity sensors namely capacitive, inductive, and magnetic. They can be either shielded or unshielded. Proximity sensors...
