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.


Miniature Series

The miniature series are ideal where space is limited. Their small size make them suitable for OEM applications in load cells, pressure transducers, weighing systems and closed-loop control. The low mass of the core can also be advantageous in projects having minimal weight restrictions.

Measuring ranges are available from ±0.25mm to ±50mm with a linearity better than ±0.5%. Additional options are also available like high temperature (150°C), improved linearity, plain core & extension, sprung loaded core & extension. Available outputs are AC, and a range of signal conditioners housed in an external box fitted in-line (or separate if preferred) with the LVDT cable of DC Bipolar, 0-5V, 0-10V, and 4-20mA.
