Kit encoders are component-level products, designed to be built into motors or other types of equipment where real-time measurement of rotary position (angular displacement) or rotational speed is required.
The MPI-15 measuring system, made of a LCD multifunction display with built-in magnetic position sensor, when combined with the magnetic band M-BAND-10 is a complete system for the measurement of linear and angular displacement (with a minimum radius of 65mm).
The angular displacement of the ball must be constrained and the radius of smart fluid layer has to be small enough too.
The missile uses vertical launching mode, The angular displacement of the missile around the inertial coordinate system x-, y-, and z-axis is defined as the yaw angle [[theta].sub.x], pitch angle [[theta].sub.y], and roll angle [[theta].sub.z].
In order to examine the tracking performance of the joint angle of the upper limbs, the reference value calculated after the measurement of the angular displacements of the examinee's shoulder and elbow and the angular displacement output from the encoder after the upper limbs rehabilitation exercises are measured.
Equation (7) indicates that [([M.sub.gb]).sub.zc] is a moment proportional to angular displacement a [10].
They found that the 6a[omega] array yielded angular acceleration results that were closer to that of the NAP than a 3a[omega] array, transformed peripheral linear accelerations to the COM better than the 3a[omega] array and at least as well as the NAP, yielded angular velocity data more accurate than the NAP, and provided angular velocity data which could be integrated into angular displacement data at higher accuracy than the NAP [24-25].
The hip linear and angular velocity and angular displacement curves are presented in Figure 2.

Specifically, [Q.sub.index] (see (7)) takes into account both the angular displacement of HHD and the transverse component of moment.
The spatial position of any point on the drill string can be determined by the axial displacement, radial displacement, and angular displacement. The positive direction of angular displacement is shown in Figure 1(a).
