  • Position Sensors and Position-Sensing Instruments
    resistive, optical triangulation, photoelectric, position displacement, ultrasonic, and variable resistance technology sensors. Position-sensing instruments also include laser micrometers, linear encoders, linear potentiometers, and linear variable differential transformers (LVDTs). Rotary position
  • No contact means no headaches in position transducing
    for the noncontacting potentiometer shows the coupling capacitance , and the stray ground capacitance, , are then summed by the integrating amplifier. The amplifier output voltage, , is proportional to the position of the probe. Noncontacting potentiometers typically are more linear than contacting types
  • Medical Device Link .
    Because procedures such as angioplasty, laparoscopy, and laser eye surgery allow no room for error, modern medical equipment must be as precise as a surgeon's scalpel. Potentiometers, which convert rotary or linear motion into a voltage output, are one option available to design engineers
  • Plastic Machine Retrofits
    In an industry where we have long provided reliable, high performance position feedback, MTS Temposonics sensors are often utilized to bring new life to older equipment. Whether it be to replace potentiometers or multiple mechanical limit switches with linear feedback, we have the right solution
  • Pneumatic Cylinders
    sensors over that of linear potentiometers. In recent years, MTS has supported pneumatic cylinder manufacturers in the development of servopneumatic control solutions. In these types of applications we can provide the right combination of performance and outputs like position and velocity.
  • Medical Device Link .
    Spotlight on Sensors and Transducers A transducer incorporates a flexible cable, a spring-loaded spool, and a potentiometer to detect and measure linear position. With a measurement range of 4.75, 12.5, 25, or 50 in., the SP1 string pot is suited for restricted space installations. Most common
  • Eddy Current Profiles Parts
    current characteristic of a part with respect to the position variable. In a profiling application, either a dual- or single-element eddy current sensor is passed over the surface of the part and its position, with respect to that part is measured with a linear displacement device such as a linear
  • Positioning Components
    and incremental types. Incremental encoders typically generate a pulse for every increment of motion over which they travel. To gauge position, a controller counts the pulses. The most common incremental encoders are rotary optical encoders, linear optical encoders, and linear magnetic encoders. Other types
