Numerous textbooks, handbooks, and assorted publications are available on sensor technology. These documents typically cover a broad range of sensors and technologies, but have limited information on each type. Information on inductive sensors can be found in many of them. Kaman is different in that it condenses technical and application information on inductive sensors into a single source. The intent is to help the reader understand where inductive sensors can be utilized, how to best apply them, and to understand their performance.

There are many instruments to measure position, distance, or vibration of an object. These can be segregated into two basic categories: contact and non-contact. While contact instruments are suitable for many applications, they have a limited frequency response and can interfere with the dynamics of the object being measured. Where these factors are a concert, non contact methods have advantages.
