I am working on a project that consist in detecting the proximity of metallic containers through a plastic layer.

I am interested in the PCF8883 for its low power consumption.

Would it be possible to do that given the following details :

  • Detection distance (5 to 10 cm)
  • Plastic layer thickness 5 mm


If not is there any other sensor that could do it?
