Displacement sensors are used to measure movement and position. Displacement is the movement of an object from one place to another whether this is in any direction and for any distance.


Rotary Position Sensor Types

There are many different types of rotary position sensors available on the market today.


What is a Linear Position Sensor?

A linear position sensor is a type of measuring device which measures movement and displacement in a linear motion.

Non-Contact Displacement Sensors

Non-contact displacement sensors are part of our range here at Positek. They are a device used to determine the movement or position of an object using technology which is wear-free promoting long life of the sensor.


Cable Extension Transducer Applications

A cable extension transducer is a type of position sensor and is part of our range here at Positek.


What is a Rotary Position Sensor?

A Rotary Position Sensor measures position in a rotary fashion; either clockwise or anticlockwise. They can be described as an electromagnetic device which emits an electrical signal which corresponds to the angle of rotation of an object around a shaft.
