Its Applications to Mechanical Measurements by Tomokazu ARAI and Bunjiro ICHIJO Capacitance measuring devices recently have come into universal use as error detectors in automatic control systems for industrial purpose. Needless to say, the most important characteristics required in such type of devices are sensitivity and stability. These two requirements, however, usually run counter to each other. A meter of high sensitivity, when put under long continuous operation condition, will cause a

Described in this paper are principle of a capacitance meter of high stability and sensitivity, and its some applications to measurements of small displacement and thickness variation of strip.
