140 – Goniometers: Angular Measurements

Goniometers are devices capable of transforming angular position into a proportional electrical signal. The TSD130 series goniometers incorporate gauge elements which measure bending strain along or around a particular axis. The bending strain is proportional to the sum total angular shift along the axis. Because the bending force is extremely small, the output signal is uniquely a proportional function of the angular shift.
