   General principles of transducers (sensors) 
   In the strict sense of the word transducer is a device that converts a change in one quantity changes in the other. In terms of electronic transmitter is usually defined as a device (transducer ) that converts non-electrical physical quantity (called a measured physical quantity) in electrical cignal, or vice versa. There are, of course, exceptions to this rule. 
    It follows that the transducers are used in electronic systems, ie in technical devices to electrical signals, the result...

   The principles of the transformation of the measured physical parameters 
   In each converter, which converts the element is based on certain physical principle, which is associated with the electrical characteristics of the device so that a change in the quantity being measured involves a change in these characteristics. Changes in the electrical characteristics creates an electrical signal that depends on the quantity being measured. 
    Although the market sold thousands of transmitters, operating principles, on which they are based, there are relatively few. We can therefore consider these principles in detail. All converters are used in the basic principles can be grouped into categories, which are described below....
