Analog transducer Vs Digital transducer-Difference between Analog transducer and Digital transducer

This page compares Analog transducer Vs Digital transducer and mentions difference between Analog transducer and Digital transducer.

Analog transducer


Definition:
The transducer which converts input quantity into analog output is called analog transducer. Analog output refers to continuous output with respect to time.


Example:
• LVDT
• Strain Gauge

Digital transducer


Definition:
The transducer which converts input quantity into output having digital pulses is called digital transducer.


Example:
• Shaft Encoders

Transducer types

The transducers can be classified as per figure-1 above into following types.
• Active and passive
• Analog and digital
• Primary and secondary
• Transducer and inverse transducer
