Why do you use the term ‘position sensor’?

Actually, the correct technical term for one of our products would be ‘absolute displacement transducer’.

But it sounds a bit of a mouthful we use the term position sensor.

Other applicable terms might include position encoder, position transmitter, rotary encoder, linear encoder, rotary sensor, shaft encoder, angle resolver, angle synchro, displacement transmitter.
