Are we getting close? Proximity Sensors + Arduino

In past tutorials, we have covered temperature, color, time, direction, but never distance or proximity. I think I strayed away from this because most of the lower cost proximity sensors are pretty drop-dead-simple to use and thought it might not be that useful. But the time has come, I’m writing about some distance/proximity sensors. While …

Induction sensors don’t need a touch, they’re satisfied by proximity

Proximity sensors working on an induction principle are able to detect ferrous and non-ferrous metals very reliably. For those of you, who already work in this field, there´s everything clear for you probably and you know well, that induction sensors are literally one of the keystones for an industrial automation. For all of you, who´re …
