Position Sensor Applications

Position Sensors are one of the most diverse sensors used across a huge range of industries

Position Sensors can be used to measure either linear or rotary position using a whole range of sensing technologies.

Position Sensors are used for many different applications, anything which requires measurement of movement will use a type of position sensor.

We have supplied position sensors for applications in industries including; Motorsport, Automotive, Industrial Sector, Medical Applications, Automotive, Mobile Vehicle, Hydraulics, Aerospace and so many more. Here are some of our applications;

 Motorsport and Automotive Position Sensor Application


  • Steering angle and gear position
  • Clutch/throttle actuation and pedal position
  • Suspension  - on cars with our ELPM, and on motor bikes with ELPM-POP

Industrial Position Sensor Applications


  • Machine builder – position feedback (textile machines and welding machines)
  • Structural testing
  • Nuclear plants
  • Automotive testing

Medical Position Sensor Applications

  • Oncology machines
  • MRI machines

Other Position Sensor Applications

  • Ticket Barriers on the London Underground - position sensors determine when the gates open and close
  • Special Effects on Films - things aren’t always what they seem and very often position sensors make this happen
  • Segways - our Partner Novotechnik supplied sensors which are used on Segways
  • Ramp Positioning - Our sensors were used on Dover ferry port to ensure the ramp was at the correct position of loading and off loading.
  • Bridge movement - the London Peninsula bridge has a movement requirement to allow boats to pass underneath - our sensors ensure that the bridge is held at the correct position.
