Magnetostrictive position sensors are non-contact linear position sensors that use the momentary interaction of two magnetic fields to produce a strain pulse that moves along a waveguide. One field is from a magnet that moves along the outside of the waveguide. The other field is from the waveguide itself. Magnetostrictive position sensors that provide absolte measurements produce a unique signal for each point along the axis of the travel. The advantage to this type of sensor is that it is non-contact and there is no wear of friction. It is also not affected by vibrations so there is no limit on the number of operating cycles. The disadvantage is the dead band on both sides of the sensor which cannot be reduced to zero.
