Linear Sensor Basics: Absolute vs. Incremental

When it comes time to choose a linear position sensor, there’s a dizzying array of options and terminology to wade through.  In this series of articles, we’re going “back to basics” to try to shed some light on the sometimes confusing world of linear sensing options, technologies, and terminology.

First up, we’re going to take a look the two basic linear sensor measurement types: absolute measurement and incremental measurement.
