Mechanical position sensors | Choosing the right position sensor
Magnetostrictive sensors incorporate a waveguide into which an electrical pulse is sent that generates a magnetic field. When this magnetic field meets that of an external magnet, a mechanical elastic wave propagates by reflection to a read head integrated into the sensor. This  allows the position of the external magnetic field to be determined based on the response time of the mechanical elastic wave. These sensors are heavy duty and their accuracy increases...
