Transducer is a device, usually electrical, electronic, electro-mechanical that converts one type of energy to another for various purposes including measurement or information transfer in electrical or digital form.
Types of Transducers
Transducers are of many types depending upon their uses like Electromagnetic, Electromechanical, Electromechanical, Electro acoustic, Photoelectric, Electrostatic, Thermoelectric, Radio acoustic.
Application of Transducers
Transducers are used in various field day to day life like, Microphones, Geiger meters, Potentiometers, Pressure Sensors, Thermometer, and in head of the Tape Recorder.
If one observes he may find Transducers are very common in our mechanical system. It is manufactured mostly all region o the world China, Indonesia, Taiwan, United States, and India are big manufacturers.
Export market of Transducer is mainly in North America, South America, Western Europe, Eastern Europe.
Accuracy of Transducers should be calibrated; sensitivity of Transducers must be beyond any doubt.
