Press Release Summary:
Available for contactless and wear-free path and position detection, LVDT Sensors are suited for industrial, medical, ocean going, agricultural, testing, and special purpose machines. Housing is nickel-plated steel with IP65 rating and temperature range of -25 to +85Â°C. Available in M12 or M18 versions, sensors have external thread and capture measuring lengths up to 2, 5, 10, or 20 mm, depending on model. Units are actuated by unguided core or switch with internal spring.
Original Press Release:
Rugged, Easy-to-install Inductive Position Sensors for Medical, Testing and Industrial Applications Suitable for Harsh Environments
Hoffmann Krippner is rolling out new LVDT (Linear Variable Differential Transformer) inductive position sensors for industrial, medical, ocean going, agriculture, testing applications and special purpose machines. High res photo supplied upon request.
Frisco, TX — Hoffmann-Krippner Inc. now offers a wide range of LVDT sensors from its German partner company INELTA for contactless and wear-free path and position detection.
The LVDT sensors operate on the principle of the differential transformer and are suitable for use in many applications, such as medical technology, industrial, seafaring, in testing facilities, machinery construction, special purpose machines and agriculture.
Thanks to the housing made from chemically nickel-plated steel with IP65 type of protection (optional IP68) and a temperature range of -25 to +85°C, which can be expanded on request, the LVDT sensors are suitable for use in harsh environments. Due to their external thread, the devices are easily installed and adjusted. Unlike competing smooth designs, there is no need for them to be clamped with grub screws which can damage the housing and distort the measured value. The connection takes place via a M12 connector or a cable.
They are available as M12 or M18 versions with external thread and capture measuring lengths of up to 2, 5, 10 or 20 mm, depending on the model. It is actuated by an unguided core or a switch with internal spring. The linearity tolerance of the sensors is ± 0.5%.
The M18 sensors come with integrated electronics and a current or voltage output. For the M12 models, users can choose between various signal amplifiers which generate output signals ranging from 0 to 5 V, 0 to 10 V, ± 5 V, ± 10 V, 0 to 20mA or 4 to 20mA.
Custom sensor designs with other configuration options, such as improved linearity tolerance or individual calibrations, are also available. An online configuration guide and questionnaire with optional capabilities are provided to make it easy for design engineers to create their own custom designs.
