Opto-Interrupter home switch repeatability evaluated
« on: June 01, 2007, 04:59:45 PM »
I got curious and spent too much time, but I wanted to know the achievable repeatability of an Opto-Interrupter type switch.
If done correctly, it can be extremely accurate: 1 micron repeatability= 0.001mm = 39 micro inches.  For the details see:

Enjoy!
