Types of transducers

Types of Transducers are having a major role to understand the transducers structure, working, analyzing its output and different conversion and manipulating techniques etc.   A broad classification of transducers are given as follows- Types of transducers based on Source of Energy requirement- Active Transducer Passive Transducer Types of transducers based on physical phenomenon- Primary Transducer Secondary Transducer …

Sensor Vs Transducer

“Sensor vs. transducer” has become one of the most confusing topics for the students and engineers since the terms “Sensor” and “Transducer” both functionality look similar and are often used to describe the same devices. Even “linear sensor” and “linear transducer” refer to the same component; this is not necessarily incorrect terminology. But they are …

Electrical Transducer

“Electrical Transducer is specified as the sensing device which is used to detect or sense a non electrical physical quantity or magnitude and convert into electrical output signal such as voltage or current proportional to the input being measured.” The physical quantities are basically non electrical in nature so to detect/ measure, control, store the …

Transducer

“Transducer is a device which converts one form of energy into another form for the purpose of measurement and control.” Most of the transducers are based on converting physical quantities such as pressure, force, temperature, liquid level, fluid flow etc. into a measurable or detectable change for measurement and control the particular physical variable. A …

Dynamic Characteristics

Dynamic characteristics of a measuring instrument describe its behavior between the time a measured quantity changes value and the time when the instrument output attains a steady value in response. As with static characteristics, any values for dynamic characteristics quoted in instrument data sheets only apply when the instrument is used under specified environmental conditions. …
