Choosing the right position sensor
Potentiometric position sensors, also called a resistive sensors, measure the resistance of a conductor track between a reference point and a cursor connected to a moving part (or its support). The resistance measured by the sensor is used to calculate the position of the part. These sensors are accurate and generally inexpensive because their technology is simple. However, they are often sensitive to wear, vibration, foreign bodies and extreme temperatures.
