does "inductive" sensing mean the same thing as "e-field" sensing? can you comment on the pros/cons of e-field sensing?
The e is for electric field. Inductive sensing uses a magnetic field. As the one slide noted, the inductive sensor needs a metallic target, the capacitive or efield sensor does not require a metallic or magnetic target
