The POSITAL Advantage - Over 130,000 Varieties of Sensors

The POSITAL Advantage - Over 130,000 Varieties of Sensors available through Servo2Go.com
The POSITAL Advantage: Modularity and Mass-Customization. Until now, users of position and motion sensors have had to choose between low-cost standardized products and more expensive custom-built items.  For cost-sensitive applications, sensor builders have adopted mass production techniques, building large runs of identical products. The rotation sensors used in automotive ABS and stability control systems are good examples of high-volume, mass produced items.
