Quick-Cal™ Signal Conditioner Supports AC LVDTs with Intuitive Setup, Offers Cybersecurity Lockout and Tamper Detection

Pennsauken, NJ, August 7, 2018… NewTek Sensor Solutions introduces the NT-C-6000 Quik-Cal™ LVDT Signal Conditioner that offers an intuitive AC LVDT set-up for quick configuration by non-technical personnel. Workers can set zero and full scale output using front panel push buttons while LED indicators provide prompts for the calibration process. Color-coded plug-in screw terminals further simplify equipment set-up. These smart signal conditioners even self-diagnose and indicate LVDT failure while providing cybersecurity lockout and tamper detection.

Compatible with a wide range of AC-operated LVDTs and inductive half-bridge LVRTs, the NT-C-6000 Quik-Cal™ establishes digital communications via a RS-485 two-wire multidrop bus. The RS-485 port also supports hot swapability of units by saving set-up parameters. Units offer several user-selectable fields including:

  • Primary Voltage (1.5 Vrms or 3 Vrms)
  • Excitation Frequency (3.5 kHz, 5 kHz, 7.5 kHz and 10 kHz)
  • DC Output (0-10V DC, 0-5VDC, 0.5 to 4.5VDC, +5VDC, +10VDC or 4-20mA)
  • Digital Address for RS-485 Communication

Addressing the needs of today’s process control systems, the DIN-Rail mountable unit is ideal for use in a variety of industrial applications including factory automation, materials testing, turbine control systems, steam valve positioning, packaging equipment and gaging. Units are RoHS compliant and CE-certified for use in Europe. Performing with low floor noise, the LVDT Signal Conditioners provide high resolution measurement.

NewTek offers the NT-C-6000 Signal Conditioner with a two-year warranty. The company accepts small- to large-sized orders and guarantees on-time delivery of units. For more information, refer to the website at or contact Mike Marciante at 856-406-6877.
