In the broadest definition, an electronic/electrical sensor is an object whose purpose is to detect events or changes in its environment, and then provide a corresponding output. A sensor is a type of transducer; sensors may provide various types of output, but typically use electrical or optical signals.
Sensors are used in everyday objects such as touch-sensitive elevator buttons (tactile sensor) and lamps which dim or brighten by touching the base, besides innumerable applications of which most people are never aware. With advances in micro machinery and easy-to-use micro controller platforms, the uses of sensors have expanded beyond the more traditional fields of temperature, pressure or flow measurement, for example into MARG sensors. Moreover, analog sensors such as potentiometers and force-sensing resistors are still widely used. Applications include manufacturing and machinery, airplanes and aerospace, cars, medicine and robotics.it is also included in our day-to-day life.
Sensors typically are cylindrical and protrude through an opening, secured in place with locknuts. These are normally adjustable to allow the sensor to move into the position required to acquire the object to be detected. The electrical connection is typically through the rear at the opposite end of the cylindrical body as the sensing plane or surface.  The outer surface of the sensor is an ideal location for either an affixed printed product or laser marked e-label.
