Inductive Sensors & Capacitive Sensors

Thanks to our collection of innovative products, Locon Sensor Systems Inc. serves businesses in a wide variety of industries. Regardless of your company’s needs, we will either have the sensor you need in-house, or our team of expert and experienced engineers will be able to design and fabricate a custom solution for your unique needs.

Most often, we provide non-contact proximity detection sensors to production facilities involved in the automotive, medical device, and semiconductor industries. Though on a more general level, our products prove to be invaluable to a range of companies that use machinery in their day-to-day operations. Let’s take a look at which types of sensors may be best for your company:

Inductive Sensors

These sensors, used in detecting metal targets, feature vacuum-sealed metal housings and electronics – preventing function disturbance from shock, vibration, dirt and moisture. Inductive sensors are able to thrive in an array of industrial environments, including manufacturing plants. Locon Sensor Systems offers cylindrical, analog, rectangular, high temperature and high pressure inductive sensors, and of course, we can always custom design one for your business.

Capacitive Sensors

Thanks to their ability to sense all types of materials, including both liquid and solid materials, capacitive sensors are perfect for packaging and material handling, in addition to liquid level sensing applications. Among the different types of capacitive sensors available are miniature, cylindrical, high temperature and analog models that can all be customized to suit your needs.


Photoelectric sensors have the capability to detect objects using a pulsed infrared beam. Presence detection is helpful in determining the position of the target, or if an unwanted item appears in the production line. Due to their durable design, photoelectrics are an ideal option for industrial environments that are especially harsh. In order to make sure we can suit our customers’ needs, we have miniature, cylindrical, high temperature and analog photoelectrics available. There is the option of using a fiber optic cable partnered with the sensor to accommodate higher-temp or hard to fit areas.

Regardless of your specific application or the industry you’re in, the engineering staff at Locon Sensor Systems Inc. can design a customized sensor for your needs. Our sensors not only function reliably in many environments; they are also extremely durable, meaning they’re an investment that will last for years to come.
