This LVDT transducer is mounted by self-aligning rod-end bearings, and the outer sliding sleeve protects the movable core whilst enhancing the rigidity of the transducer during operation.
- Small transducer body length to stroke ratio
- Temperature error less than 35ppm/°C
- Welded stainless steel construction, sealed to IP66
- Absolute measurement
- Infinite resolution
For optimum performance, we recommend the use of the purpose designed signal conditioning modules to operate this LVDT:-
- UCM - Universal Conditioning Module, with IP68 protected metal enclosure.
- SCM100 - DIN Rail mounting
The design of the AF145 LVDT transducer has evolved from technology and experience gained in over 30 years in the bespoke aerospace / military sensor market, where performance and reliability under extreme operating conditions are paramount. The transducer coil has been specifically designed to reduce overall transducer length and to enable high accuracy ratiometric operation, as well as being able to operate in the "Differential Output" configuration.
By keeping the signal conditioning electronics away from the transducer the full potential of the LVDT is realised and not compromised by the presence of sensitive electronics. The result is a more reliable transducer solution, easily installed, adjusted and with a greater choice of signal inputs and outputs. The electronics have been tested to operate 25 metres from the LVDT, with the output driving 240 metres of cable.
The LVDT transducer system provides a highly reliable solution for position sensing, particularly in hostile environments. The contactless operating principle allows a fit and forget installation so that zero maintenance programmes can be incorporated within plant service schedules.
These LVDT displacement transducers are designed to provide the user with the most popular choice of mounting styles for a wide range of industrial applications. Stroke ranges from 5mm to 150mm are available from stock, so call your nearest sales office for the latest information.
For larger scale users, we offer a custom design service which can customise either the mounting arrangement or shaft assembly to suit a specific system requirement.
Suited to harsh automotive and industrial environments.
