Typical applications for the gauging sensors include quality control and dimensional inspection, use in hydraulic and pneumatic cylinders and other industrial uses.
In the case of quality control, inductive gauging sensors measure the geometry of work-pieces, and dimensions for inspection are output in inspection rigs.
The gauging sensor uses a plunger guided in plain bearings and is fitted with a return spring. The measuring probe is mounted via a standard M2.5 thread and can be interchanged with commercially available measurement probes. Capable of continuous measurements, the LVDT series gauging sensors use electromagnetic measurement principles and have a highly efficient construction which provide innovative possibilities for sensor mounting.
The LVDT series gauging sensors have measurement ranges from ±1 mm to ±10 mm, and linearity of down to 3µm, or ±0.15%. It can operate in a temperature range of between -20 ºC and 80ºC, and has excellent temperature stability. Housed in stainless steel with magnetic shielding, the gauging sensor is wear-free and provides for long-term stability.
These LVDTs are available in Australia and New Zealand from Bestech Australia P/L.
