Motion control system designers have found a way to eliminate or reduce common sources of position error, such as mechanical backlash, non-linearity, and hysteresis. The method is called direct load position sensing and it employs linear encoders as a source of … Continue reading
Hysteresis, resolution, repeatability, non-linearity, null-point, temperature coefficient, accuracy. These are but a handful of the many terms associated with linear position sensors. To the uninitiated, it can be rather daunting. And, unfortunately, there is a lot of room for ambiguity … Continue reading
I received a call the other day from a customer who wanted to use a magnetic field sensor on a cylinder, and evidently was requiring very precise results. His aksed “what is the hysteresis of your sensors? I notice that it is listed in your catalog as a percentage and I need to know the exact value in millimeters.” My response was, “well it depends”, upon which he was not overly pleased. I then continued to explain my answer which leads me to the contents of this posting. Continue reading
