Displacement Measurement Potentiometer, LVDT and Capacitive Sensors Potentiometer Potentiometer Potentiometers are used frequently as variable resistors in electronics Specially adapted for displacement/position measurement As the position of the slider (center-tap) moves, the resistance in both sides of the potentiometer changes proportionately Typically made using a wound-wire arrangement or carbon-infiltrated plastic Suitable for static-or quasi-static measurements (inertia limits dynamic use) ME 3023 Measurements in Mechanical Systems Fall 2010 Displacement Measurement Potentiometer, LVDT and Capacit

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
