Do you think Inductive Proximity Sensors would be ok to use for limit switches?

I tried optical sensors once but the problem was the circuit never dropped to a full open position and the BOB was looking for either full open or full closed. I'm guessing the inductive sensors will be the same. I think there's a way around it but it will take some tweaking.

I think that you should "bench test" before you use them. There are so many types of solid state switches and circut boards it is hard to tell.
