How do Sensors Measure Angle?

An angle is the degree of rotation of an object from a reference position about a central axis. In the engineering world, there are two types of angles requiring measurement. One is the physical or mechanical characteristic, such as the rotation of a shaft with respect to its bearing or housing. The other is a mathematical term such as the angle between two phases of alternating voltage system. Usually, sensors measure angles in a format that a computer or a machine can understand, interpret and Read more [...]
