Summary

In this chapter we discuss resistive position transducers, electrical resistance and then the history of resistive linear position transducers. Next, we consider the linear position transducer design, the resistive element and the wiper of a linear position transducer. Later, we discuss linear mechanics, signal conditioning and performance specifications.
