Proximity and Photoelectric Sensors Selection

The Proximity and Photoelectric Sensors Selection guides are designed to help industrial manufacturers select the best proximity or photoelectric sensor technology and supplier for their organization’s unique business requirements.

Proximity and Photoelectric Sensors Selection Overview

In recent years, sensor technology such as proximity and photoelectric sensors have become much more powerful in terms of the information they are now able to utilize and share to perform their duties more effectively.  Today, proximity, photoelectric, and other sensor technology and related systems revenues worldwide come from monitoring applications using these technologies where they become an integral part of the information flow within plants and product distribution networks.  Major digitization trends like Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), analytics, and the cloud have impacted the features and functions found in today’s applications of proximity, photoelectric, and other industrial sensors.  Finding the right supplier that fits your needs has become critical for your future success.

Choosing the right sensor technology supplier and technology to monitor machines such as motors, compressors, conveyors, and a long list of other machinery equipment in your plant can be one of the most important decisions you will make for your business operations for years to come.  Immediately, one thinks of reliability, safety, and maintainability as important reasons for deploying proximity, photoelectric, or other industrial sensors in the proper configuration.
