Linear Position Transducer

Aug. 18, 2010
Linear position sensors play an important role in today’s complex and increasingly efficient manufacturing processes.

Providing accurate, reliable, continuous position feedback is only the start. Linear position sensors must also deliver value by being easy to install and easy to use, without taking up valuable space.
