The IIoT is all about communication of information concerning the status of devices and being able to control them remotely. This imposes a whole new set of requirements on sensors. They have to be designed to be able to interface well with electronics and computers, with all of the complications of that, such as EMC — sensitivity to, and generation of, noise and interference. This can only be achieved with intelligent sensors. We interviewed K. Mark Smith, Ph.D., Senior Product Manager, Sensors, Microchip Technology, (Chandler, AZ) about the role of inductive position sensors in the IIoT.
