Position measurement technology
Position measurement technology is a specialized area in which length and distance positions are determined. At the heart of position measurement technology is a technology that consists of precise sensors, which determine various positions and distances. Position measurement technology is used in particular in industry and research. The sensors work on the basis of different technologies. Among others, there are draw-wire, laser, and ultrasonic sensors as well as inductive sensors. Encoders are an example of the sensitive devices used in position measurement technology.
