Position Sensors

A Position sensor is any type of device which detects the movement of a chosen object in either a Linear or Rotary motion and converts the movement into output signals which are suitable for processing, transmission or control depending on the application. 

Position sensors are available in both contacting & non contacting technologies including; Potentiometric, Magneto-Restrictive, Hall Effect, Encoder and LVDT/RVDT in various sensor packages. Different types of technology ensure the most accurate measurements in different applications.

You may be surprised to know that position sensors are very common in everyday life; you have probably come into contact with position sensors as they are used in;
