    You need to state your application, the question is too broad.
    e.g. for machine tool use there is linear scales.

    I want to measure a strings lenght in real time, like if the strings lenght reduce it senses it and vice versa

    So how long is this piece of string!
    Are we talking shrinkage? Or is it being reeled in?
    Still NEI!

    Put one turn around a pulley of known diameter and measure the rotation of that pulley.
