Sensors are devices that detects or measure properties (physical or chemical) for plant environment and convert them into signals for Control System Process. Its Uses in various applications also ranging from simple devices like thermometers to complex systems like “Cameras and Chemical”.
Common types of sensors include Temperature Sensors, Pressure Sensors, Motion Sensors, Light Sensors and Chemical Sensors.
Temperature Sensor detect changes in temperature and uses for different applications to control Inform Temperature for the systems to control it.
Pressure Sensor measure changes in pressure and It’s applications in for Pressure Monitoring and control.
Motion sensors detect movement and are used in security systems and gaming consoles.
Light Sensors detect changes in light lux and uses in cameras and automatic lighting systems.
Chemical Sensors identify specific chemicals and are useful to information for quality monitoring and medical diagnosis. majorly uses in Quality control and chemical industries.
There are different types of sensors available, each are whit unique characteristics and applications. In Manufacturing Industries Pressure Sensors are used to measure gas and liquid pressures, temperature sensors monitor and control temperature, proximity sensors detect the presence or absence of objects and flow sensors measure the rate of fluid flow or conform to availability of flow. Other sensors like level sensors, vision sensors and Torque sensors also play crucial roles in manufacturing processes.
Temperature sensors come in various forms as Thermocouples, Resistance Temperature Detectors (RTDs), Thermistors, Infrared Sensors and Bimetallic Sensors. Each type has its own advantages and limitations for use.
Pressure Sensors as strain gauge sensors, capacitive sensors, piezoelectric sensors, resonant sensors and optical sensors.
Proximity sensors encompass inductive sensors, capacitive sensors, ultrasonic sensors and photoelectric sensors.
Flow sensors consist of differential pressure sensors, turbine sensors, electromagnetic sensors and ultrasonic sensors.
Level sensors include capacitive sensors, ultrasonic sensors, radar sensors, float sensors and contact and non-contact level sensors.
Vision sensors capture and analyze images for inspection, measurement, identification and guidance tasks.
These sensors are vital components in various industries, ensuring accurate measurements, control and performance. The choice of sensor depends on the specific application, required accuracy and range and environmental conditions. Calibration is essential to maintain accuracy and periodic recalibration may be necessary. Sensors enable automation and process control, improving efficiency and safety in industrial operations.
