Inductive sensors are often used to measure position or speed, especially in harsh environments. The terminology and technology used in inductive position sensing can be confusing.

Inductive position and speed sensors come in many shapes, sizes and designs. It can be said that all inductive sensors work on the principle of transformers, and they all use physical phenomena based on alternating current. This was first observed by Michael Faraday in the 1830s, when he discovered that the first current-carrying conductor could 'induce' current into the second conductor. Faraday's discoveries formed the basis of modern electric motors, generators, and of course inductive sensors for position and speed measurement.

Inductive position and speed sensors include simple proximity switches, variable inductance sensors, variable reluctance sensors, synchronizers, resolvers, rotary and linear variable differential transformers (RVDT and LVDT), and a new generation of inductive encoders (Sometimes called a choke).

Types of inductive sensors
In a simple proximity (or 'proximity') sensor, the power supply causes alternating current to flow in a coil (sometimes called a loop, bobbin, or winding). When a conductive or magnetic target (such as a steel plate) approaches the coil, this changes the impedance of the coil. When the threshold is passed, this serves as a signal that the target is approaching. Proximity sensors are usually used to detect the presence or absence of metal targets, and the output is usually analog switches. This type of inductive sensor is usually used where traditional switches may have problems-especially where there is a lot of dirt or water. Next time you board an airplane, you will see many inductive proximity sensors, or take a look at the landing gear while boarding.

Variable inductance sensors and variable magnetoresistive sensors usually generate electrical signals proportional to the displacement of a conductive or magnetically permeable target (usually a steel rod) relative to the coil. Like the proximity sensor, when the coil is energized by alternating current, the impedance of the coil changes according to the displacement of the target. This type of sensor is usually used to measure the displacement of a piston in a pneumatic or hydraulic cylinder. The piston may be arranged to cross the outer diameter of the sensor coil.

Synchros are another form of inductive position sensors that measure the inductive coupling of coils relative to each other. Synchronization is usually rotating and requires electrical connection to the moving and stationary parts of the sensor (commonly referred to as the rotor and stator). They have extremely high accuracy and can be used in industrial metrology, radar antennas and telescopes. Synchros are very expensive and increasingly rare, most of which are replaced by (brushless) resolvers. These are another form of inductive position detectors, but the electrical connection is only made to the windings on the stator.

LVDT, RVDT and resolver measure the position of the change in inductive coupling between coils, usually called primary and secondary windings. The primary winding of the sensor couples energy into the secondary winding, but the ratio of energy coupled into each secondary winding changes in proportion to the relative displacement of the magnetically permeable target. In LVDTs, this is usually a metal rod that passes through the winding hole. In an RVDT or resolver, it is usually a shaped rotor or pole shoe that rotates relative to the windings arranged around the circumference of the rotor. Typical applications of LVDT and RVDT include aerospace ailerons, hydraulic servo systems in engine and fuel system control. Typical applications for resolvers include commutation of brushless motors.
The significant advantage of the inductive position sensor is that the associated signal processing circuit does not need to be located near the sensor coil. This allows the sensing coils to be located in harsh environments that might otherwise hinder other technologies-such as magnetic sensors or optical encoders-because they require relatively fine silicon-based electronics to be located at the sensing point.


Inductive sensor application
The inductive position sensor has long-term records and can operate reliably under harsh conditions. Therefore, they are usually the automatic choice for safety-related, safety-critical or high-reliability applications. Such applications are common in the military, aerospace, railway and heavy industry sectors.

The reasons for this good reputation are related to basic physics and operating principles, which are usually independent of:

Mobile electrical contacts
temperature
Humidity, water and condensation
Foreign matter such as dirt, grease, grit and sand.

Advantages and disadvantages of inductive sensors
Due to the nature of the basic operating elements (winding coils and metal parts), most inductive position sensors are very robust. Given its good reputation, an obvious question is 'Why can't inductive sensors be used more frequently?' The reason is that their physical fitness is both a strength and a weakness. Inductive sensors are often accurate, reliable, and sturdy, but they are large, bulky, and heavy. The demand for precision-wound coils also makes their production costs expensive-especially for high-precision equipment. In addition to simple proximity sensors, more complex inductive sensors are very expensive for more mainstream applications.

Another reason for the relative scarcity of inductive sensors is that it is difficult for designers to specify. This is because each sensor usually needs to separately specify and purchase related AC generation and signal processing circuits. In turn, this requires important skills and knowledge of analog electronics. As young engineers tend to focus on digital electronics, they will tend to adopt alternative, more digital methods.

New generation-inductive encoder or encoder
A new generation of inductive sensors has entered the market in recent years and enjoys an increasing reputation in traditional and more mainstream fields. This new generation of inductive sensors is often called inductive encoders or 'INCODER' (a mixture of inductive and connected encoders). This method uses the same basic physics as traditional equipment, but uses printed circuit boards and modern digital electronics instead of bulky transformers and analog electronics. This method is very elegant and opens up the application range of inductive sensors, including 2D and 3D sensors, short-distance (<1mm) linear devices, curved geometry and high-precision angle encoders, including small rotary encoders and large rotary encoders.

The use of PCB allows the sensor to be printed on a thin flexible substrate, which can also eliminate the need for traditional cables and connectors. The flexibility of this approach-both physically and from the ability to provide custom designs for OEMs-is a great advantage.
