5â•‡ Sensors and Transducers A sensor is a device that responds to a changing phenomenon. A transducer is a device that transfers energy from one form to another. Sensors and transducers can be categorized in a number of ways depending on factors such as the energy input and output, input variables, sensing elements, and electric or physical principles. From the energy input and output point of view, there are three types: the modifiers, the self-generators, and the modulators. In modifiers, a particular form of energy is modified rather than converted; therefore, the same form of energy exists in both the input and the output stages.
The reproducibility is the closeness of sets of measurements when repeated in similar conditions over a long period of time. The ideal or perfect instrument would have perfect sensitivity, reliability, and repeatability without any spread of values and would be within the applicable standards. However, in many cases, there will be imprecise and inaccurate results because of internal and external factors. The departure from the expected perfection is called the error. Often, sensitivity analyses are conducted to evaluate the effect of individual components that are causing these errors.
