Linear Encoders

these linear sensors are well sealed and especially rugged.

Hall effect sensors

to measure the position of a rotating magnet to produce an analog position signal.


potentiometers use a variation in resistance to measure rotary or linear position.

Inclinometer Tilt sensors

Tilt sensors indicate an angular position relative to the local gravity vector.

Draw wire sensors

have a wire spool attached to a rotary sensor to convert the wire length into a value.


DROs or Digital Readouts give a visual numerical indication of position when used with linear encoders


are the standard for flight and engine control position measurements.


industry standard for angular and rotary measurements in aerospace and industrial applications.
