Inductive sensor technology

Baumer's (Southington, CT) inductive sensor technology measures a distance on a target with high speed and high precision, enabling equipment condition assessment. Thus maintenance, output quality and cost of operation of the equipment is being optimized. A specially developed Baumer inductive sensor is a key enabling technology for one of the latest John Deere product innovations for which the company was selected as a recipient of a John Deere supplier innovation award for 2015. The innovative sensor solution was made possible by close collaboration between the OEM and Baumer, Frauenfeld. The demanding requirements of the application ruled out the usage of standard sensors. Baumer’s capability to analyze the application and the requirements during the collaboration resulted in specifically optimized inductive sensors. These Baumer sensors allow for fast and high resolution distance determination even during operation. For more information, visit
