Proximity Switch Sensors
Proximity switches are special sensors that can detect certain metals or magnets without touching them. They’re often used in engines to figure out where the crankshaft or camshaft is. These sensors use a technology called Hall effect zero speed, which needs electricity to work. When the sensor gets close to the metal or magnet, it knows its position and sends a signal. But when it moves away from the metal or magnet, the signal changes. Proximity switches are tough, strong, and can resist things that might mess with their signals, like electricity.
