Metal Detection Using Inductive Sensors

Posted by Edwin Stoll on Thu, Sep 27, 2018

Inductive sensors are a type of proximity sensor that use an electromagnetic field to detect metal. The concept involves an oscillating electromagnetic field generated by the sensor that drive eddy currents through a metal target. This is commonly known as damping of the oscillation. When damping occurs the sensor is able to detect the change in the electromagnetic field.
