Celesco/TE Connectivity offers a wide selection of cable extension and rotary position transducers, commonly called string pots or draw-wire sensors. A Celesco position transducer detects and measures linear position and velocity using a flexible cable and spring-loaded spool. Celesco pioneered this innovative design and continues to enhance it. The parent company, Measurement Specialties, now pairs other miniature and sub-miniature sensing technologies including accelerometers, pressure, temperature, torque, load, force, and level.
● Measurement ranges from 0-2” up to 0-1700” full stroke range.
● High accuracy, repeatability, reliability, even in difficult applications.
● Outputs include voltage divider, analog 4-20 mA, fixed voltage, CANbus, DeviceNET, Encoder, CANopen.
● Complete line of miniature and sub-miniature sensing technologies including accelerometers, pressure, temperature, torque, load, force, and level.
● Sensors designed for Test & Measurement, Automotive, Military & Defense, OEM, Industrial End User and Environmental.

What Exactly Is a Position Transducer?
A machine needs to be told how to function. That’s where a position transducer comes in. This is an electronic device that uses a sensory mechanism to tell a machine when to function and how to function in the manner desired. It’s usually implemented in automated processes, and there are a few different types of position transducers available, depending on the use.
Mainly, position transducers sense the movement or the location of a specific part in the machine and process the information. After processing the information, it can either continue to give power to the machine or cut it off. It does this by turning the information it receives into a signal or voltage.
