Selecting a Position Sensor - Things to Consider;

When selecting a position sensor it is important to take a few factors into consideration to ensure that the best sensor is selected. Different types of position sensors have different strengths and will be more suitable in different environments.Type of Movement/ DisplacementThe most...

What is a Transducer?

Using the term transducer usually refers to a sensor although not always.Types of TransducerThere are two main types of transducer; an input transducer and an output transducer.An input transducer takes the energy or measurement and converts it into electricity, this is the type of transducer...

Waterproof Sensors

The term â€waterproof sensors" covers sensors which are splash proof, usable in humid environments, or used in underwater applications. Our waterproof sensors are submersible and can withstand long term submission in depths of up to 3,500 meters.Because they are robust, our waterproof sensors...

Displacement Sensor Applications

Displacement sensors are used within any application where the measurement of movement is required, for example; Shifts in position Gaps and change in gaps Vibrations Expansion of objects Inclines Expansion due to temperature Displacement sensors convert the...

How do Tilt Sensors work?

A tilt sensor - otherwise known as an inclinometer - is a type of sensor used to measure the slope or angle of an object with reference to gravity. They are one of the most common types of sensors available and are used throughout many industries.Take a look at all ofthe tilt sensors we have...
