Sensors are the communication managers of automated industrial systems. They collect information about the environment and convert this information into a format that can be used by the system. Sensor selection depends upon what information the automated system needs to acquire.
In this course you’ll learn to list the primary types of sensors, to categorize sensors based upon their capabilities and you’ll understand the role of sensors in automated industrial systems. You’ll be able to explain how each characteristic impacts sensor performance and you’ll be able to describe the criteria to be considered for selecting a sensor. You’ll be able to describe the different types of process control sensors, to describe common applications of process control sensors and you’ll know how to differentiate mechanical and electromechanical sensors.
