Whilst there are several ways to measure displacement, the Linear Variable Differential Transformer (LVDT) remains a popular transducer in most industrial applications. LVDTs initially were used as a means of taking dimensional readings in laboratories. They gained popularity in a wide variety of industrial monitoring and control applications, and whilst an LVDT is used to measure displacement the technology can be employed within other transducer types.

Our LVDTs are made from stainless steel and can be sealed to most IP levels, including IP68. The rugged construction and simple principle of operation, results in high reliability and accuracy.

Industrial Series

The Industrial Series has been specifically designed to meet the tough conditions that are experienced in industrial plant areas. The robust construction includes as standard, a stainless steel housing, sealing to IP65 (IP68 waterproof optional), and an armoured hose option.

Measuring ranges are available from ±0.5mm to ±550mm with a linearity better than ±0.5%. Additional options are also available like high temperature (150°C), improved linearity, rod wipers, rod end bearings, sprung loaded core & extension. Available outputs are AC, DC Bipolar, 0-5V, 0-10V, and 4-20mA. If high temperature is required then the signal conditioner can be housed in an external box fitted in-line (or separate if preferred).
