Automation sensors are devices that measure or detect changes in an environmental characteristic. There are many types of automation sensors including position sensors which detect physical contact or movement, potentiometers which can determine the degree of physical movement, optical sensors which detect variations in light conditions, and proximity sensors which detect when magnetic objects are in range.
Automation sensors are available for highly specialized detection applications, such as a fluid level sensing, colour/light frequency detection, and pressure sensing. In one case, when used near volatile gases, explosion proof sensors are necessary.
