Electronic Sensor Skills

Electronic sensors are used in industrial applications for feedback to systems like electrical relay controls and programmable logic controllers. Amatrol's Portable Electronic Sensors eLearning course builds a strong foundation from the basics.  In addition to in-depth theoretical knowledge of electronic sensors, learners will also gain valuable skills with five different electronic sensors. For example, learners will study a magnetic reed sensor to understand its operation and applications, such as sensing the position of a pneumatic cylinder. Learners will also learn how to measure and analyze magnetic reed sensor performance.

What are the Types of Electronic Sensors?

There are many types of electronic sensors. Each type of electronic sensor uses a different electrical principle to sense the presence of an object, and offers unique advantages for certain applications.

In all, there are five common types of sensors:

  • Inductive Proximity Sensor
  • Capacitive Proximity Sensor
  • Magnetic Reed Switch
  • Hall Effect Sensor
  • Photoelectric Sensor

Amatrol’s Sensors eLearning Course Features Engaging Multimedia

Amatrol’s extensive, thorough multimedia covers portable electronic sensor features. Interactive screens paired with instructive graphics teach about an array of portable electronic sensors from inductive to photoelectric sensors. With the optional hardware, learners can then apply this theoretical knowledge to immediate hands-on skills. For example, electronic sensors eLearning students study the function, applications, and characteristics of magnetic reed sensors and then operate, measure, and analyze this sensor for themselves. This combination of theory and practice ingrains concepts in a learner’s mind and makes more advanced topics easier to comprehend.
