Proximity Sensors
ContentsOverviewMagneticExamplesOverview Proximity sensors are used to determine the range and position of an object in the near vicinity of the sensor. One application is touchless control panels and human interfaces. Most use infrared light  to detect the object. Magnetic Magnetic proximity sensors usually come in 2 or 3-pin variants. They come in normally-open and normally-closed variants. … Continue reading Proximity Sensors
