Displacement, Position and Motion Transducers
Displacement, position and motion sensors form the basis of many different types of measurement systems. They are used in systems for the measurement of force, temperature, pressure and acceleration, as well as medical imaging systems requiring precise indexing control (e.g. x-ray Computer Tomography).
