Proximity sensors are the most common and affordable solution for no-touch object detection. The most commonly-used proximity sensor is the inductive type, which generates an electromagnetic field to sense metal objects passing close to its face. This is usually the easiest sensing technology to apply in applications where the metal object to be detected is within an inch or two of the sensor face.

Note that the standard detecting distance is based on a standard shape approaching the sensor in a standard way. The real detecting 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.

Interface Boards and Hubs

Connection Functional

This sensor connects to a device with a Digital Input.

This is how you use an external power supply to connect the 3527 to a Phidget InterfaceKit or Hub that does not have an external power jack:

  • Connect the +12 wire from the Power Supply (that's the one with the white line) to the 3527 Brown wire.
  • Connect the 3527 Black wire to a Digital Input on the Phidget.
  • Connect the Power supply Ground Wire and the 3527 Blue wire to the Digital Input Ground connector on the Phidget.

Note: When the 3527 is connected to a board with open-collector digital outputs like the 1012, it will behave as a Normally Closed (NC) sensor instead of Normally Open (NO).

For boards that have power input, if the supplied power is within 12-24VDC, the +V line can be connected to the terminal block, powering the sensor through the Phidget.
