High-Speed Position Sensors

CTS high-speed position sensors are devices used to accurately measure the position of an object or component in real-time, particularly in applications where rapid movements occur. These sensors are designed to provide precise positional feedback at high speeds, enabling control systems to respond quickly and accurately to changes in position. Today, the high-speed sensors are finding themselves in Traction Motors for electrified powertrains with CTS solutions being developed for side mount and end of shaft applications.
