Everybody has favorites. There’s nothing wrong with that. But when you stop considering the best option for you application, it becomes a problem.
A good example of this is ultrasonic sensors. Some people love them because they’ve had great experiences with them in the past. In other words, they happen to have had an application where ultrasonic level sensors perform optimally.
Other people distrust ultrasonics. In other words, they happened to have had an application that was not ideal for ultrasonic sensors. They really should have chosen a different sensor.
This scenario could repeat itself with just about any sensor technology you could imagine. That’s why you need to re-consider your go-to sensor.
