Those of us old enough to remember the “good old days” recall that grade school focused on learning the 3 R's: reading, ‘riting, and ‘rithametic. In the world of sensors, there are also 3 R's: Repeatability, Resolution, and Response. As important as these sensor parameters are, there is often confusion in the mind of users about exactly what they mean and in what ways they tend to interact with each other. This article will attempt to explain the 3 R's for position sensors and dispel any confusion that might exist.
