The LRS-18 Series Spring Loaded LVIT Linear Position Sensor Get More Sensor for Less
MOORESTOWN, NJ – H.G. Schaevitz LLC Alliance Sensors is pleased to introduce its first spring loaded LVIT (Linear Variable Inductive Transducer) series. The LRS-18 series are spring loaded, contactless devices designed for dimension or position measuring applications in factory automation and in various industrial and commercial applications such as automotive testing, mil/aero test stands, robotic arms, and packaging equipment, where the sensing element cannot be attached to the object being measured. The LRS-18 stroke to length ratio is excellent. Existing technologies with similar electrical specifications are 9” long to measure 1”. The equivalent LRS-18 is only 4” long.
• EXCELLENT stroke to length ratio
• Contactless operation prevents internal wearout from dithering or rapid cycling
• Ranges from 12.5 to 100 mm (0.5 to 4.0 inches)
• M18 x 1 threaded aluminum or stainless steel body with mounting nuts
• Maximum tip force on the item being measured is 1 pound
LRS-18 sensors have a 19 mm (0.75 inch) diameter aluminum or stainless steel body with an M18 x 1 thread and come with two hex jam nuts for easy installation in place of an 18 mm analog proximity sensor. These sensors use a 0.25 inch diameter probe equipped with an AGD No. 9 contact tip, and are offered with either an axial cable or a connector. Operating from a variety of DC voltages, the sensors are available with a choice of four analog outputs and they all include ASG’s proprietary SenSet™ field calibration feature.
