"Linear Position Sensors"

No matter the output, sensors in motion systems track speeds, angles, vibrations, accelerations, object presences, and (the primary focus of this Design Guide) distance traveled, and positions as referenced by rotational and translational (linear) planes. Options abound for measuring all these mechanical quantifications.

In this Design Guide, the editors of Design World detail some of the most common sensing options for tracking linear position and travel … including variations based on capacitive, eddy current, Hall effect, and inductive technologies. Also covered will be rotary as well as linear variable differential transformers (RVDTs and LVDTs) and how industry differentiates these technologies from those classified as encoder technologies.
