Information About Position sensor

 A position sensor is any device that permits position measurement. It can either be an absolute position sensor or a relative one (displacement sensor). Position sensors can be either linear or angular. Some position sensors available today:-

Inductive Non-Contact Position Sensors

String Potentiometer (aka String Pot)

Linear variable differential transformer (LVDT)


Capacitive transducer

Eddy-current sensor

Hall effect sensor

Laser Doppler Vibrometer (optical)

Proximity sensor (optical)

Grating sensor

Rotary encoder (angular)

Seismic displacement pick-up

Piezo-electric transducer(Piezo-electric)

Photodiode array
