In complex mechanical systems, it is often very difficult to accurately measure the movement of a single part, particularly if it has several degrees of freedom. The draw wire potentiometer is a versatile solution to this very problem; it can be attached to a part using an M5 screw or fastened to the end with a zip tie, and the potentiometer itself has a pair of M5 screw threads on the back for easy installation.
