induSENSOR MSC7401 Controller is housed in aluminum housing (IP67).

Press Release Summary:

induSENSOR MSC7401 Controller are designed for enabling the operation of LVDT and LDR gages and displacement sensors. The unit is equipped with current and voltage output. Used in automated processes, quality assurance, test rigs and in pneumatic cylinders, controller’s displacement sensors can measure and monitor movements, displacements, positions, strokes, deflections and dislocations.

Original Press Release:

Optimized Controller for Inductive Displacement Sensors

Due to its aluminum housing, the new induSENSOR MSC7401 controller for inductive gages and displacement sensors of the LVDT and LDR series is extremely robust, while also boasting new electronics and a favorable price/performance ratio.

For decades, inductive displacement sensors from Micro-Epsilon have represented the highest levels of precision and innovation. The new induSENSOR MSC7401 controller enables the operation of LVDT and LDR gages and displacement sensors. Providing increased performance, the single-channel electronics protected by a robust aluminum housing (IP67) is equipped with a current and voltage output. Furthermore, the new controller stands out due to its ease of use and optimized price/performance ratio. This new controller opens up numerous fields of application in automation technologies and machine building.

Micro-Epsilon offers a wide range of inductive sensors for displacement and position measurements. induSENSOR displacement sensors from Micro-Epsilon are used extensively in applications for automated processes, quality assurance, test rigs as well as in hydraulic and pneumatic cylinders. The advantages of the inductive displacement sensors include ruggedness, reliability under harsh conditions, high signal quality and temperature stability. They are available in five different series which serve as basic models for customer-specific requirements.

The scope of supply ranges from conventional LVDT sensors and inductive sensors with integrated controller to customer-specific high-volume versions. LVDT gages for example have a plunger which moves freely in the sensor housing. The plunger is joined to the object by a thread to transfer the movement of the measurement object. The measurement process in the sensor takes place without contact and is therefore wear-free. Particularly intended for applications requiring high quantities, the displacement sensors are mainly used to measure and monitor movements, displacements, positions, strokes, deflections, dislocations, etc. in vehicles, machines and systems.

The specific sensor configuration of the LDR series is characterized by its short, compact design and small diameter. LDR sensors from Micro-Epsilon have a plunger and can be used in ambient temperatures up to 160 °C. These low cost LDR sensors are particularly suitable for high volume installations in restricted spaces in industrial environments.
