Linear potentiometers, also known as linear displacement transducers or position sensors, are used to measure the distance an object has travelled from a pre-defined starting position using an output signal. They are commonly seen as standard-level voltage dividers and can be supplied with amplifiers. The measurement taken from these sensors is used to indicate the direction of motion.
Our linear displacement sensors and potentiometers
The Measurement Shop UK supplies a wide selection of Novotechnik linear displacement sensors and potentiometers with push rod and ball coupling that enables a backlash and lateral force-free operation. Featuring a durable, compact design and solidly constructed metal casing, these potentiometers are perfect for use in mechanical and automotive engineering procedures.
