Festo Exploring Sensors Module

Sensors play an increasingly important role in today’s advanced world. The Exploring Sensors module allows students to explore the different uses of mechanical and electronic sensors from a security applications viewpoint.Students are introduced to the variety and characteristics of sensors. They build a variety of circuits using magnetic sensors, vibration/shock sensors, pulsed infrared sensors, and motion sensors. Students also build alarm circuits using sensors, an electromechanical relay, and a buzzer.

Sensors in this module include an infrared photoelectric beam sensor, an infrared motion detector, a mechanical switch, a vibration detector, and magnetic proximity sensors.
