Inrush current transiently flowing through the output.
Sensors with a static output produce a constant pulse as long as they are attenuated. In principle, all proximity sensors feature a static output. The term is used in connection with ring sensors (see also dynamic output).
Sensor output mode
The switched state of a sensor"s output (energised or de-energised) is determined by the choice of light operate or dark operate mode. Light operate: In light operate mode, the sensor"s output will be energised if the sensor sees its own emitted light source.Dark operate: In dark operate mode, the sensor"s output will be energised if the sensor does not see its own emitted light source.In addition, when evaluating light operate or dark operate output modes, it is also necessary to consider the sensing mode:Opposed mode sensors:Light operate: object absent, beam established. Dark operate: object present, beam broken.Retro-reflective mode sensors:Light operate: object absent, beam established. Dark operate: object present, beam broken.Diffuse, convergent, fixed-field mode sensors:Light operate: object present, beam established. Dark operate: object absent, beam broken.
The switching frequency indicates the number of input and output operations of an electronic component or circuit per second. The larger the switching frequency, the more often the switching operation can be run per second or the faster is the switching operation.
With proximity switches, the switching frequency indicates the number of detectable changes between damped and undamped state per second (Hz).
