Best Answer

An transducer converts one form of energy into another. eg. door bell(electrical energy - sound energy)

An actuator transforms electrical energy into mechanical energy. eg. motor

An actuator is essentially a transducer but a transducer need not be an actuator.

What is the difference between sensor and a actuator?

sensors sense how things are running, to see if anything needs to be adjusted, send info to ECU, ECU then sends info to actuator then the actuators does something to deal with the problem... sensors - input, actuators - output.


How do you use tocodynamometer?

You search for the uterine fundus, and stabilize the transducer on it, then press the zero button on the CTG when there is no contraction at all for zeroing, to set the baseline of the transducer to the uterine tone (which is between 5 and 15 mmhg).

Why are Earpiece's magnetised?

The simplest form of transducer from an electric signal to sound waves is by way of a small electro-dynamic transducer - really a tiny loudspeaker. But of course any transducer between these energy types can be used. Piezoelectric, capacitance, and so on.Your doctor's stethoscope does not have magnetic earpieces, nor do the earpieces used to communicate with the patient in CT or MRI scans.In the latter case, the metal would seriously interfere with the diagnostic process, and the solution is to have the audio transducer remote, and to connect that to the patients earpiece with plastic tubing. Quite like the speaking tubes on older ships - simple but reliable.

Is there a difference between a photo transducer a photo sensor and a photo electric transducer if there is one what is it?

No There is not much a difference you can draw between a Sensor & a transducer, as both does the same thing of measuring an energy in form & converting it to other form. But a transducer will make an additional effort to convert the energy into measurable electrical form & then then transmitting!!!! Pls coment

What is the difference between through-hull transducer and transom mount transducer?

A thru-hull transducer is mounting through the hull of the boat. So you would actually take the boat out of the water, drill a hole in the boat approx 2" in diameter(depends on transducer model) and mount the transducer "thru-hull." -- A transom-mount transducer is a transducer bolted to the transom of a boat. Both kinds of transducers need to be submerged in the water for them to work correctly. www.sailboattalk.com I dont know a whole lot about this but I do know you dont drill a hole thru the hull. I have a ranger and from the factory mine was placed inside of the hull under my battery storage no hole needed to be drilled. But on a transom mount you have to drill holes into the transom.
