DISPLACEMENT SENSOR APPLICATIONS
Machine automation - these are extreme environments so the sensor must have the correct sealing to be suitable.
Aerospace applications - satellites, drones, space vehicles and flight simulators all have a requirement for movement to be measured and therefore displacement sensors are required.
Hydraulics - sensors in these applications usually need to be resistant to shock and vibration due to the nature of the industry.
Power turbines - these applications usually use LVDTs which are a type of displacement sensor.
Research testing facilities - another application which requires suitable sealing for the environment.
Elevators - measuring the position of the elevator and door opening position.
Special Effects - to create some special effects within the film industry, displacement sensors are needed to help with the creation.
Ramp and bridge position - in any instance when a ramp or bridge needs to be repositioned a displacement sensor is needed. The exact position needs to be measured to ensure the vehicles driving on the bridge/ ramp are safe.
