Linear potentiometer displacement sensors are suitable for motion control and position measurement. This potentiometer is coupled to the drum, so the mechanical movement is converted into a resistance value according to the movement of the mobile. The sensor provides a direct ohmic value from 0 to 1 kOhm.
