Inductive proximity sensors are distinguished by a long operating life and extreme robustness. They are the most common and affordable solution for applications requiring accurate, non-contact detection of metallic objects. Their operating principle is based on a coil and oscillator that generates an electromagnetic field to sense metal objects passing close to its face. The real detecting of the sensor distance will vary depending on the shape, thickness and type of metal being detected and will in general be between 70 to 80% of the standard distance.
The output pin is an open collector meaning you will need a pull up resistor on the output pin.
