LVDT Gauging Transducer from RDP
Product Announcement from RDP Electrosense
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.
This transducer uses the Linear Variable Differential Transformer (LVDT) principle which means that it is probably the most robust and reliable position sensor type available. The strength of the LVDT sensor's principle is that there is no electrical contact across the transducer position sensing element which for the user of the sensor means clean data, infinite resolution and a very long life.
The GT series gauging transducer employs precision linear bearings to optimise the LVDTs measurement precision and repeatability.
RDP has been manufacturing Transducers and Electronics for over 40 years. Their specialty lies in the field of measurement of physical parameters:
- Displacement Measurement Sensors
- Load Cells
- Pressure Transducers
- Signal Conditioning Amplifier / Panel Meter
RDP Electrosense offers a wide range of LVDT displacement transducer systems. The LVDT transducer is a very robust position sensor for use in industry and research. RDP LVDT transducer systems are available in a very wide range of packages, both LVDT measurement units (requiring external electronics) and units with built-in electronics. Intrinsically Safe Systems can be supplied for hazardous (explosion risk) areas, using Zener barriers.
