Metal Detector Probe

  1. May 27, 2010 #1
    Hi guys,

    I am working on a Automation project and I am wondering whether there is any probe that can emit signal to a standard PLC when iron rod is found inside a concrete wall.

    Personally, I hope it can be avaliable from RS.

    Thanks for your kind help in advence.

    Haha, I found the correct name of this kind of sensor.

    It's "Inductive proximity sensor" which can be find out easly in RS.

    I found this in "Industrial Motor Contorl 5th edition , Stephen L.Herman" It's really a nice electrical book to mechanical engineer.:!!)
