Displacement Sensor Types

Different displacement sensor types are used to suit different applications, for example, a small compact potentiometer would suit applications measuring foot pedal displacement whereas a larger heavy duty cable extension transducer would suit a longer-range application such as hydraulic boom...

Temperature Sensors in Heating Systems

If the thermostat is set to a certain level between 1-5, a certain temperature is associated with it. With setting 3, for example, it is around 20 degrees Celsius. Each increase or decrease by one position corresponds to a temperature change of 3 to 4 degrees Celsius. Temperature...

Canister Load Cells

What is a Canister Load Cell? Canister load cells are a type of weighing device. As the name suggests, they are cylindrical. Like many load cells, canister load cells use internal strain gauges to measure the change in shape due to the compression of force. Canister load cells are available...
