:: Linear Position Sensor

Hall Effect
A Hall effect sensor is a transducer that varies its output voltage in response to changes in magnetic field. Hall sensors are used for proximity switching, positioning, speed detection, and current sensing applications.
An In-Cylinder transducer is configured for mounting inside a cylinder, with a hole drilled down the center of the piston rod, and the cylinder end cap is machined to accommodate the transducer. This technique provides excellent environmental protection and position feedback.
Low Cost LCIT
The LCIT series is based on a patented linear position sensor design that features all of the benefits of current LVDT inductive technology, but at a significantly lower cost.
The linear variable differential transformer (LVDT) is a type of electrical transformer used for measuring linear displacement. Because the sliding core does not touch the inside of the tube, it can move without friction, making the LVDT a highly reliable device. The absence of any sliding or rotating contacts allows the LVDT to be completely sealed against the environment. LVDTs are commonly used for position feedback in servomechanisms, and for automated measurement in machine tools and many other industrial and scientific applications.
Magnetic Encoder
An encoder is a sensing device that translates either linear or rotary motion into a predictable electrical output.
A potentiometer is a three-terminal resistor with a sliding contact that forms an adjustable voltage divider. The potentiometer can be used as a voltage divider to obtain a manually adjustable output voltage at the slider (wiper) from a fixed input voltage applied across the two ends of the pot.
