PLC: Industrial Sensors

Industrial control systems cannot—unlike humans—see, hear, and monitor processes by themselves. Instead, they use industrial sensors to convert mechanical, magnetic, thermal, optical, and chemical variations into electric voltages and currents. In this course, Zahraa Khalil covers the most common types of industrial sensors used within the field of industrial automation. She looks at proximity, temperature, pressure, and level sensors, and explores the operating principles and common applications of each. If you’ve got the basics of programmable logic controllers (PLCs) programming down and want to see what you can do with industrial sensors, join Zahraa in this course.
