Magnetostrictive sensor's resolution, linearity deviation and precision

Resolution, linearity deviation and precision of magnetostrictive sensors

The resolution indicates the smallest physical change that the measurement system can also recognize.

The linear deviation is the maximum deviation of a straight line connecting the zero point of the measurement range to the end point.

There is a linear relationship between the position to be measured and the output signal.


Accuracy refers to the degree of consistency between the measurement results and the true values of the measured variables. Therefore, high precision can be achieved only when the accuracy is high.

Another concept in this regard is repeatability. When a point is always moving under the same frame condition, repeated precision is obtained.
