Abstract : The patent relates to a shaft position indicating system for measuring and indicating the angular position of a shaft. A pair of fixed, diametrically opposite nozzles, connected through fixed orifices to a fluid pressure source, confront a plate rotatingly fixed to the shaft with a noncircular, continuous groove symmetrical about its own axis with its locus displaced from the shaft axis. There are pressure relief holes angularly spaced through the plate at the groove. The position of the groove relative to the nozzles determines a back pressure differential linearly indicative of the angular position of the shaft.
