Eddy Current Sensors leverage ECT to optimize performance.
Press Release Summary:
December 28, 2012 - Eddy current sensors are available with Embedded Coil Technology (ECT), which enables limitations normally caused by material and design to be exceeded. Sensor itself is embedded in inorganic carrier material, and electronic components can be positioned on carrier material. Developed for custom applications, sensors survive harsh environments. Products can be applied at temperatures to 180°C, and version with integrated high temperature cable can be used up to 350°C.

Easily Embedded - Standard Eddy Current Sensors Now Available with Unique Embedded Coil Technology
Press release date: December 1, 2012
Embedded Coil Technology (ECT) allows the limitations normally caused by the material and design to be exceeded. This fact makes the sensors unique. Technology for the production of coils in sintered inorganic carrier material has only been applied to customised applications. However, standard ECT eddy current sensors are now available.
Eddy current sensors with Embedded Coil Technology differ significantly from traditional sensors that use a wound coil. The sensor itself is embedded in an inorganic carrier material. Electronic components can be positioned on the carrier material. This technology has been developed by Micro-Epsilon for customised applications, which have high requirements in terms of temperature and long-term stability, as well as excellent repeatability. As this technology has been tested in OEM applications for several years, it can now be applied to standard eddy current sensors. ECT-sensors are even suitable for extremely harsh environments. At temperatures up to 180°C, these sensors are permanently applied. The version with an integrated high temperature cable can also be used in temperatures up to 350°C. The new sensors are available with the new high performance eddyNCDT DT3300 controller.
