DC/DC LVDT sensors

The DC/DC LVDT series are a linear variable transformer (LVT) contactless position sensor, which are offered with either an integral or separate signal conditioning electronics depending on the temperature or installation environment.

The sensors precision wound inductive coils enables an improved temperature performance, (low thermal drift, which is typically <±0.01% FS/°C), compared to similar inductive products. The signal electronics and sensor electrical connections are fully encapsulated as standard, providing the necessary environmental protection to provide a stable electrical output under severe vibration, acceleration, mechanical and thermal shock.

The sensor is available in either a slim Ø9.53mm or Ø12.70mm (1/2") case with mounting options of body clamp, flange or rod-end bearings. It operates from either a 5VDC regulated or 6 to 30VDC unregulated supply with an output signal of 0.5V to 4.5VDC over the measurement range of 10mm to 200mm (0.4" to 8").
