Product Announcement from Capacitec, Inc.
Position Sensors for Extreme Environments from Capacitec
Maintaining the perfect alignment of a particle detector in a gap measuring only 0.050" (1.27mm), at 300°F (149°C) and in a chamber exposed to 2 tesla magnetic field along with 107 RADS of radiation is not a job for your average displacement sensor. Fortunately, Capacitec is not a supplier of average displacement sensors. Our sensors thrive in harsh environments. Capacitec model HPB sensors were indeed installed directly in the chamber of this particle accelerator at CERN where the sensors have performed flawlessly since the late 1980s. Another nasty sensor environment can be found inside a gas turbine engine rotating from 30k to 150k rpm. Recently our gap measurement equipment is used to set gaps between the rotor and stator of a wind turbine.
Extreme Environment Major Applications:
- Wind Turbines (rotor/stator gap)
- Linear inductive motors
- Diesel fuel injectors
- Gas turbine Rotor to Stator gaps
- Vibration measurements to 200 kHz
- High vacuum and Cryogenic Processes
