Displacement sensors for position monitoring in equipment manufacturing

For the measurement of a position, e.g. the movement of a patient couch, draw-wire displacement sensors are used. As positioning tasks typically require only medium accuracy, sensors with potentiometer outputs are suitable here. Extremely precise measurements, e.g. in computer tomographs with high sectional resolution require draw-wire sensors that offer a very accurate absolute or incremental encoder.
