Linear Potentiometer

Linear Potentiometer or Displacement sensors are used in machines to measure the position, the distance or a displacement. The measuring unit is mainly used in automation technology. During the measurement, the physical quantity is converted into a measurable electrical signal which is transmitted to a control or display. In this way, automated processes can be controlled and monitored. A typical application is, for example, the detection of the position of the tool in injection moulding machines. Here, the movement is linear. It is also possible to detect the position of three-dimensional movements, such as the rollers in sheet metal bending machines.
