Applying Sensors in Real Applications

Whenever you are providing sensor training or even talking with someone about sensor inevitably, you will be asked about the applications where they are used. Try as you may, it’s sometimes difficult to explain the various ways sensors are used to solve the multitude of applications that exist.

Recently, one of my colleagues brought an interesting article to my attention that I am passing on in this blog post. Check out this article on Sensoring for In-Die Tapping. The author explains the application and provides possible solutions varying from mechanical sensors, photoelectrics, and inductive proximity sensors. In my opinion, it is worth reading to give you another perspective on how to solve one of the many ways to use sensors. Let me know what you think! Did this give you another perspective?
