• Transducers convert one form of energy into another
• Sensors/Actuators are input/output transducers
• Sensors can be passive (e.g. change in resistance) or active
(output is a voltage or current level)
• Sensors can be analog (e.g. thermocouples) or digital (e.g.
digital tachometer)

• Detects the presence of metallic objects (non-contact) via
changing inductance
• Sensor has 4 main parts: field producing Oscillator via a
Coil; Detection Circuit which detects change in the field;
and Output Circuit generating a signal (NO or NC)
Used in traffic lights (inductive loop buried under the road). Sense
objects in dirty environment.
Does not work for non-metallic objects. Omni-directional.

• Incremental and absolute types
• Incremental encoder needs a counter, loses absolute
position between power glitches, must be re-homed
• Absolute encoders common in CD/DVD drives
9
• Bimetallic switch (electro-mechanical) – used in
thermostats. Can be “creep” or “snap” action.
Creep-action: coil or spiral that unwinds or coils with changing
temperature
• Thermistors (thermally sensitive resistors); Platinum
Resistance Thermometer (PRT), very high accuracy.
10
• Two dissimilar metals induce voltage difference (few mV
per 10K) – electro-thermal or Seebeck effect
• Use op-amp to process/amplify the voltage
• Absolute accuracy of 1K is difficult

• Light dependent resistor (LDR) cell

photodiode
phototransistor
15
• Can convert about 20% of light power into electricity
• Voltage is low (diode drop, ~0.6V)
Solar power is 1.4kW/m^2
16
• Most sensitive of light sensors (can detect individual
photons)
• Acts as a current source
electrons
17
• Switches, solenoids, relays, motors, etc.
• Motors
• DC
• Brushed/brushless
Stepper motor
• Servo
• Stepper motors
• AC
Brushed motor – permanent magnets on armature, rotor acts as electromagnet
Brushless motor – permanent magnet on the rotor, electromagnets on armature are switched

microphone
speaker
• Note: voice coil can also be used to generate fast motion
19
• Detect motion (high and low frequency)
• Sound (lab this week), pressure, fast motion
• Cheap, reliable but has a very limited range of motion
20
• We’ve only briefly touched on most basic types
• Many other transducers are used/common, almost for any
physical quantity one can think of
• Processing electronics is often essential: output of many
sensors is not linear, needs impedance transform, filtering,
etc.
