Space-Saving Displacement Transducers with Integral Electronics
Marlborough, MA - March 22, 2002 - HBM, Inc., a leading global supplier of test and measurement technology, data acquisition systems and software, introduces the WA-Electronic series of inductive displacement transducers. The new, easy-to-use transducer family provides a convenient 0-10 VDC output signal through its in-line electronics. Models include both plunger and spring-loaded probe configurations.
The WA's innovative design allows its package length to be up to 40% shorter than LVDTs with the same measuring range. With its rugged, stainless steel construction and models to handle temperatures up to 150 deg C (300 deg F), the WA is well equipped to handle harsh industrial environments and wash-down situations. It also features excellent linearity (0.2% FS) and superior temperature stability.
Eight standard measuring lengths are available - ranging from 2 mm to 500 mm (0.08" to 19.7"). The wide variety of applications for the WA includes press-fitting and machine tool, test stand, production and process monitoring. The WA can also be built directly into hydraulic cylinder designs and can handle pressures up to 350 bar (5,000 psi). Additionally, a new amplifier module for HBM's MGC Plus data acquisition system allows you to monitor eight WA transducers simultaneously.
HBM, with U.S. headquarters located in Marlborough, Mass., is a leading global supplier of measurement technologies, products and solutions for industrial test and measurement applications. HBM provides complete measurement solutions - from sensor to software - for industrial and laboratory applications.
