What Is The Difference Between Embeddable And Non-Embeddable Sensors?

What Is The Difference Between Embeddable And Non-Embeddable Sensors?Embeddable sensor construction includes a metal band that surrounds the ferrite core and coil arrangement. This helps to "bundle" or direct the electro-magnetic field to the front of the sensor. Non-Embeddable sensors do not have this metal band; therefore, they have a longer operating distance but are side sensitive. Read below to view a diagram showing the difference.
