Sensors and Transducers

Sensors and Transducers: The definition of¬†Sensors and Transducers are follows, The input quantity for most instrumentation systems is nonelectrical. In order to use electrical methods and techniques for measurement, the nonelectrical quantity is converted into a proportional electrical signal by a device called “transducer”. Actually, electrical transducer consists of two parts which are very closely …

Optical Encoders

Optical Encoders: The Optical Encoders are used to get the information about the position, direction of rotation, and speed of rotation of various motor shafts. They provide this information in digital form which can easily be used by microcomputers to control the speed, direction of rotation and position of the motor shaft. There are two …
