Hysteresis of an Inductive proximity switch

  • News
  • August 16, 2021


The switching hysteresis of an Inductive proximity switch describes the distance between the turn-on point while approaching an object and the turn-off point during the separation of it from the sensor. The hysteresis brings about a stable switching signal even when there are vibrations, temperature drift, or electrical variations. The hysteresis is defined in EN60947-5-2 as a maximum 20 % from the effective operating distance, and carries a value of typically 10 % from the effective operating distance sr for our sensors.
