Air Gap Sensor Market: Introduction

  • Air gap is measure of distance between rotor and stator; here rotor is the moving part and stator is fixed. An air gap sensor provides the measurement of the air gap between a rotor to stator, which can be used to monitor both the eccentricity of the rotor relative to the stator and individual pole to stator air gaps. Air gap measurement using air gap sensors is highly effective to monitor rotating machines, generators, turbines, and electric motors.
  • These sensors are based on a capacitive technique to provide accurate displacement measurement from the sensor face to a metal target. Their operation is based on the principle that electrical capacitance exists between conductive surfaces near each other, and the capacitance would change in direct proportion to the distance between the surfaces. These sensors measure those changes and can operate in high-temperature environments and high electromagnetic fields.
  • The air gap monitoring system provides an early warning of impending problems with shape and concentricity of the generator rotor and stator. Monitoring the air gap determines the condition and dynamic behavior of the machine. Since the air gap is a central part of the motor or generator and is the interface between mechanical and electrical forces, thus sensors play a vital role in detecting the air gap and avoiding future damages.

Rise in Demand for Turbines and Generators

  • An air gap is used majorly in motors and generator mechanisms, where the motor converts electrical energy into mechanical energy, and the generator converts mechanical energy into electrical energy with help of rotor and stator. Therefore, the gap between rotor and stator plays an important role in the efficiency and health of the mechanism. Expansion of the renewable energy sector, such as windmills, witness a high demand for air gap sensors for efficient working and monitoring of the system.
  • Air gap sensors are also utilized in industrial turbines, aerospace applications, and power plants. Therefore, the market for air gap sensor is projected to expand at a steady pace during the forecast period.

North America to Hold Prominent Share of Global Market

  • North America is likely to hold a major share of the global market during the forecast period owing to the development in power generation and renewable energy sectors. The air gap sensor market in North America is estimated to expand at a steady pace in the near future.
  • The air gap sensor market in Asia Pacific and Europe is also projected to expand at a steady pace in the near future. The energy sector in these regions requires large turbine hydro-generators and rotary systems, which in turn is likely to fuel the air gap sensor market in these regions.
