Abstract:

This report discusses non-contacting shaft position sensors with emphasis on the optical technique. A theoretical study of the photoconductor characteristics and its effect upon the potentiometer is made for four possible optical configurations. A detailed examination of end effects is included however, no consideration is given to the mechanization of these different approaches. The results of an industry survey are enclosed. Author
