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
