Resistive transducers, Other Engineering

Resistive transducers

Linear or rotary potentiometers can be adapted to measure displacement, possibly through mechanical gearing and linkages. The displacement is registered as a change in the current flowing (variable resistance) or more commonly as a change in the voltage tapped (potentiometer).
