LVDT/RVDT Interface for Networked PLCs

Terryville, CT — Advanced Micro Controls Inc. (AMCI), announces the addition of their ANR2 LVDT/RVDT Signal Conditioner to the AnyNET I/O family of PLC-based specialty I/O products.  AMCI’s AnyNET LVDT/RVDT Signal Conditioner integrates a network connection and expansion capabilities to provide a modern, versatile LVDT/RVDT feedback solution for any PLC-based system.  The ANR2 expands up to six 2-channel modules, allowing users to interface up to 12 LVDT or RVDT sensors using a single network connection. The interface programs through the host controller’s (PLC) software, and is a direct interface to 3-wire, 4-wire, 5-wire, 6-wire, & half bridge LVDT sensors, and leading RVDT sensors.

ANR2 AnyNET I/O LVDT/RVDT Interface Features:

• Direct interface to 3-wire, 4-wire, 5-wire, 6-wire, and half bridge LVDT sensors

• Supports Differential AND Ratiometric LVDT sensors

• Direct interface to leading RVDT sensors

• Built-in network interface

• Digital technology eliminates the need for potentiometers

• Programmable Excitation Voltage, Excitation Frequency, Sensor Displacement, and Sensor Sensitivity maximizes sensor resolution, accuracy, and linearity

• Master/Slave excitation mode to prevent cross-talk

• Supports up to 12 LVDT or RVDT sensors on a single network connection

• Easy programming without additional software

• Optional GUI interface for user orientation & test bench evaluation

• DIN rail mounting for simple, standard installation


The AnyNET I/O ANR2 is a full featured 2-channel LVDT/RVDT interface that communicates with the host controller (PLC or PAC) over the network.  The interface satisfies a wide range of applications because of its flexible design. It easily mounts on a standard DIN rail, simplifying installation and lowering costs.

The ANR2 is compatible with any PLC that supports the product's available networks since it’s programmed using the input/output registers within the host controller.  No additional software is required to use the LVDT/RVDT interface with the PLC/PAC.  Users have the option of configuring & testing the ANR2 using AMCI's convenient PC-based Net Configurator software (downloaded at no charge). 

Modular Design

AnyNET I/O easily expands from 1 to 6 I/O modules by stacking additional units onto the “gateway”, and only requires a single network connection for all communication.  This solution enables the support of up to 12 LVDT or RVDT sensors over a single network connection, which reduces physical wiring and streamlines data traffic over the network.

AMCI’s AnyNET I/O family now includes: ANR2 LVDT/RVDT Signal Conditioner, ANA2 Resolver Interface, ANE2 SSI Interface, ANG1 Stepper Controller/Drive, &. For more information on AMCI’s AnyNET I/O family, visit our website>>
