LV-45 and LV-48 Linear Position Sensors Used In Bridge Health Monitoring System

An ongoing challenge in the USA is that our transportation infrastructure is aging, as attested to by the increasing traffic and the resulting load limits being placed on bridges. In the present technological world, bridge monitoring does not have to rely on periodic human inspections, but could rely instead on electronically monitoring a bridge's health, so it can be maintained and repaired well...

Capacitive Displacement Sensor offers 50 picometer precision.
Position Sensors / Detectors / Transducers

Capacitive Displacement Sensor offers 50 picometer precision.

Designed to measure position/displacement, Elite Series CPL490 offers resolution of less than 7 ppm, even at 15 kHz bandwidth. Unit can resolve target position changes of less than 100 picometers while objects are moving at 15 kHz. When bandwidth is increased to 50 kHz, precision is still less than 0.3 nm. Sensor features bar graph display indicating probe position within its calibrated range and...
