Market Highlights


The global position sensor market spans across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, the rest of the world.

A position sensor is a device that can detect the movement of an object and converts these into signals suitable for processing, transmission, or control. Position sensors are used in a wide range of automation and measurement applications. A key step in selecting a suitable position sensor is understanding the requirements of sensor size, resolution, repeatability, accuracy, mounting constraints and environmental ruggedness. This paper discusses the available position sensing technologies and concludes with a key feature comparison. It enables applications including the manufacturing, automotive, aerospace, packaging, healthcare, electronics, and others industry. Position Sensors detect the position of which means they are referenced to or from a fixed point or position. Positional feedback is provided by these sensors. The method of deciding a location is to use either "distance," which can be the distance between two points such as the distance travelled or moved away from a fixed point, or "rotation," which is the distance between two points such as the distance travelled or moved away from a fixed point.
