   Data sheet (245kb)
These transducers are for displacement / position measurement. They make an accurate position measurement of the movement of the armature (the sliding part) relative to the body of the displacement transducer.

The LIN differential-inductance LVDTs are inductive (similar to an LVDT sensor) and because there is no contact across the sensor element it is very robust.

This sensor is appropriate for high temperature, high pressure and high nuclear radiation position measurement applications. Many applications in turbines, in nuclear power stations and in research labs are appropriate for this sensor.


The LVDTs are available as either unguided or spring return versions.

Unguided version..
On our unguided LVDTs the armature assembly is a separate component, to make a measurement the user must guide the armature inside the body without touching the sides. Unguided position measurement transducers are appropriate where external guidance is available and give truly non-contact operation

Spring return version..
Our spring displacement transducer has bearings to guide the armature inside the measurement sensor and a spring which pushes the armature to the fully out position. Spring return LVDTs are appropriate where it is not possible to connect the transducer armature to the moving component being measured.
