Amatrol’s Electronic Sensor training course covers the basic construction and operation of inductive and capacitive proximity sensors, basic constructions and operation of magnetic reed switches, Hall-Effect Sensors, and more and applications in an online eLearning setting. These hands-on workplace skills are important because electronic sensors provide reliable low-cost input and monitoring for electrical control systems, and are used in almost every industry around the world. Amatrol’s world-class online curriculum will prepare students for a successful career using equipment they will use on the job.

What are the Advantages and Disadvantages of Electronic Sensors?

Electrical control systems use electronic sensors as input devices to sense the presence of an object. Electronic sensors perform the same function as mechanical limit switches, but they use electrical principles to sense the presence of an object.

An electronic sensor has many advantages over limit switches:

  • Higher operating speed
  • No physical contact with the sensed part
  • Lower maintenance cost
  • Longer life
  • Can sense position, material type, and color

However electronic sensors are not always the best solution for sensing. There are two distinct disadvantages to electronic sensors:

  • Electronic sensors often require a more complex control system than a simple switch.
  • Electronic sensors have a relatively low power handling capability.

Electronic Sensor Training Features Engaging Online Multimedia

Amatrol’s extensive, thorough multimedia covers electrical basics such as electronic sensors. Interactive screens paired with instructive graphics teach an array of electronic sensors topics from inductive sensors to sensor applications. With the optional hardware, learners can then apply this theoretical knowledge to immediate hands-on skills. For example, learners study capacitive sensors and then manually measure and analyze the performance of a capacitive proximity sensor for deeper understanding. This combination of theory and practice ingrains concepts in a learner’s mind and makes more advanced topics easier to comprehend. (References 85-SN1)
