Specifications
   Measurement Range       Range of distance measurement, or maximum distance measured. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Accuracy       Accuracy describes the percent deviation from the actual/real value of the measurement. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Linearity       Linearity is the maximum deviation from direct proportionality between the distance measured and the output distance over the measuring range. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Operating Temperature       The temperature range over which the device must operate. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.

String Potentiometer Technology
           
   Your choices are...         
   Potentiometer       A potentiometer cable extension position sensor is made of a flexible cable and spring-loaded spool and is used to produce a change in the resistance output. This output is directly related to the distance of the target from the sensor. 
   Optical Encoder       An optical encoder converts the linear motion of the sensor shaft into an output signal. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.

Electrical
   Power Requirements       
   Your choices are...         
   AC Powered       The sensor requires an AC voltage. 
   DC Powered       The sensor requires a DC voltage. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Output       
   Your choices are...         
   Voltage       Output voltage is a simple (usually linear) function of the measurement. 
   Current       Often called a transmitter. A current is imposed on the output circuit proportional to the measurement. Feedback is used to provide the appropriate current regardless of line noise, impedance, etc. Useful when sending signals over long distances. 
   Frequency       The output signal is encoded via amplitude modulation (AM), frequency modulation (FM), or some other modulation scheme, but the signal is still analog in nature. 
   Resistance       An output consisting of a simple change in resistance, typically for a magnetoresistive device. 
   Switched / Alarm       An "output" of a change in state of switches or alarms. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Interface       
   Your choices are...         
   Serial       A standard digital output protocol (serial) such as RS232, etc. 
   Parallel       A standard digital output protocol (parallel) such as IEEE488, etc. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.

Body Shape
   Body       
   Your choices are...         
   Cylindrical       A potentiometer body is shaped like a cylinder/barrel. 
   Rectangular       A potentiometer body is square or rectangular. 
   Ring       A round or "doughnut"-shaped sensor, in which an object passes through center of ring. 
   Slot       Designed to detect the presence of a vane or tab as it passes through a sensing slot, or "U" channel. 
   Other       The body shape is other/specialty. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Threaded Barrel       
   Your choices are...         
   Threaded Barrel       Body exterior is threaded; often comes with mating nuts for panel mounting. 
   Search Logic:      Products with the selected attribute will be returned as matches. Leaving or selecting "No Preference" will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
