Assembly and connection

Installation of the inductive sensor is described in the manual:

Manual


Programming

The inductive sensor is evaluated via a digital or an analogue input at the I/O interface.


Technology

The inductive proximity sensor generates variously powerful output signals depending on whether it is moving along the middle or the edge of a metal strip. Path tracking can thus be controlled in a differentiated manner.


Technical documentation

An inductive sensor SIEA-M12B-UI-S supplied by Festo is included in the scope of delivery.
