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 are used to indicate the direction of motion.
Our linear displacement sensors and potentiometers
The Measurement Shop supplies a wide selection of 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.

Novotechnik's LWG linear displacement transducer series features robust housing with a simple mounting via pivot heads. The wiper tapping is decoupled free from backlash to the actuating rod, hereby a high accuracy and life span is secured. Ideal for mechanical and vehicle engineering. Learn More
Novotechnik's TLH transducers are designed for the direct, accurate measurement of displacement or length in control, regulation and measuring applications. The rodless design utilizes a magnetically-restrained stainless steel band to cover the opening through which the actuator operates. Thus, the actuator is driven from the side, along the unit length.
