Product Announcement from RDP Electrosense
RDP's D5/25HK unguided linear displacement transducer is ideal for gauging and positioning applications where space is restricted and micron accuracy is required.
Using the well-proven linear variable differential transformer (LVDT) principle delivering infinite resolution with absolute measurement, it provides accurate information over its linear range of 1.3 mm (0.050 inches). The design is robust and reliable and thanks to the LVDT principle where there is no electrical contact across the transducer positioning element it enjoys a long and trouble-free life. Manufactured from stainless steel, the D5/25HK is just one of a family of miniature displacement transducers which used in conjunction with the RDP range of signal conditioning offer excellent solutions for closed loop and measurement applications.
In addition to the D5/D6 miniature series we have standard models from .020 to 37 inches with a variety of outputs and mechanical configurations.
With over 45 years of experience designing and manufacturing LVDTs and other types of linear position transducers we can normally offer a solution from our vast knowledge base to meet your application requirements.
Depending on your application and environment, we have both AC LVDTs with external signal conditioning and DC to DC units which have internal signal conditioning and are easy to use and set-up with voltage or 2-wire 4-20ma outputs.
If a standard model is not suitable for your application, take advantage of our expertise and call us at 1-800-334-5838 to discuss your special needs with one of our application engineers and we will design a custom solution.
These transducers use the Linear Variable Differential Transformer (LVDT) principle which means that they are one of the most robust and reliable position sensor types 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.
LVDT transducers require signal conditioning. This signal conditioning can either be internal (built-in) or external. Our standard external LVDT signal conditioning models are described in the 'Electronics' section of our website or go directly to a specific package type:
