Sensors are the key components of measurement, monitoring and control systems. In particular the precision of a control system cannot be greater than the precision of the sensor used to measure the controlled variable.

Electromagnetic principles are at the heart of many types of sensor systems. In some cases the variation of an electromagnetic parameter is directly related to the measured quantity as in the case of a capacitive position sensor. In other cases electromagnetics are used indirectly as in the case of the magnetic pickup of a turbine flow meter.

Even in cases where electromagnetics play no role in the measurement process, they may be an important consideration for the safe operation of the system as in the case of high voltage systems which must be protected by adequate insulation levels.

CAE software is an essential design tool for any sensor system that requires analysis of electromagnetic fields. Without the insights that only CAE software can provide, the design process will almost always revert to inefficient and expensive trial and error prototyping.
