changes. It is measured in Henrys.
Induction The phenomenon of a voltage/magnetic field, or electrostatic
charge being produced in an object by lines of force from the
source of such fields.
Inductive Sensor A sensing device that is actuated by a metal object.
Insertion Force The force required to insert a contact into the mating contact.
Insertion Loss A measure of the attenuation of a device by determining the
output of a system before and after the device is inserted into the
