Linear Motion Transducers (LVDT)
Linear displacement sensors featuring high-resolution, contactless measuring and extremely long service life.
LVDT displacement sensors are measuring systems which operate on the principle of the differential transformer. They measure the movement of an object in one direction along a single axis and output an electrical signal in proportion to the distance an object has traveled. The standard electrical output signal is in mV/V requiring external signal conditioners, however, optional internal electronics provide analog voltage or milliamp outputs. LVDT displacement sensors are optimized for applications with small strokes and especially for applications in which oscillating movements with high dynamics or high accelerations have to be recorded.
Common applications include process gauging instruments, industrial process control systems, factory automation systems, heavy equipment, manufacturing technology and engineering. The technology is also used in material testing devices and weighing devices. P3 America is a leading provider of LVDT transducers and LVDT position sensors.
Extensive Mechanical Life
Because LVDT transducers operate without contact, they are built to last. They can operate in environments of high vibration, extreme hot or cold temperatures while withstanding water and other contaminants. This means they are dependable when the stakes are high. With P3 America’s competitive pricing and quality manufacturing, you’ll get peace of mind knowing you’ve made a good investment. All LVDTs are manufactured in accordance with ISO9001 certification standards.
