Testing the Inductive Sensor on Glass onto Stainless Steel
Yes, you can see the red LED light which indicate the sensor has been triggered indicating it has dictated the stainless steel through the 4.9 mm thick glass plate. Further tests showed this sensor can only be triggered at maximum distance of 6.9 mm. That's plenty as my glass plate is 4.9 mm which therefore gives me a leeway of 2 mm. Now all I need is a thin sheet of stainless steel.
