Sensor

A sensor is a component that can detect physical or chemical parameters in a qualitative or quantitative manner. Detection of quantified variables is the basis of measuring devices and transmitters for pressure, temperature, flow, humidity, brightness, and many other factors. Depending on the phenomenon to be measured, very different types of sensors are employed as, for example, pressure sensors or temperature sensors. Sensors are also referred to as detectors, sensing elements, or probes.
