What is a Reduction Factor 1 Sensor?

Posted by David Rubinski on Tue, Dec 23, 2014

The reduction factor 1 or R1 sensor offers some real advantages over standard inductive sensor technology. It allows you to sense all metals without the effects of standard sensor reduction factors.

Life Expectancy of an Inductive Sensor

Posted by David Rubinski on Tue, Nov 25, 2014

What is the working life expectancy of an inductive sensor?

In practical terms, the life expectancy of an inductive sensor is indefinite. This conclusion is based on the operation of the sensor within the specification rating of the product with some margin for improved lifetime usage.


If the sensor is operated at room temperature without the effects of shock, vibration, temperature fluctuations, power supply spikes, or exposure to moisture, the sensor will outlive our life expectancies and may in fact never fail.

For instance, if the sensor is operated at room temperature, 24 VDC supply, and no temperature changes, the sensor may last a lifetime and never fail. This longevity is because the sensor is being operated well within the range of the components used to design the product.
