The Different Types of Cubic Inductive Sensors

In past blog posts, we have focused on the cubic photoelectric sensor—a sensor that uses LED light to determine the absence of an object—but in this post we turn our attention to its cousin, the cubic inductive sensor. This type of sensor, unlike the photoelectric sensor, uses electromagnetic induction to detect the presence of a… Read more »

An Overview on Cubic Photoelectric Sensors

Cubic photoelectric sensors are one of the many types of photoelectric sensors available on the market. While their housing dimensions are what most obviously set them apart from other types of photoelectric sensors, their shape also makes them uniquely suited to certain applications.  Here we go through everything you need to know about cubic photoelectric… Read more »
