Inductive Linear Sensors Suit Up For Subsea Venture

Inductive Linear Sensors Suit Up For Subsea Venture
Alliance Sensors Group

Groomed for handling high-pressure, subsea hydraulic cylinders position feedback chores, the SS-7 series Linear Variable Inductive Transducer (LVIT) is designed to be embedded into a hydraulic cylinder and utilizes the gun-drilled piston rod as a target. The component can sense its position with-out a magnet. The SS-7 series can be submerged to a depth of 12,000 feet or installed in a pressure balanced oil filled chamber to provide position feedback on blowout preventers, ROVs, and relief valves. Features include a 316 stainless steel, 25-mm diameter housing, measurement ranges from 1” to 24” (25 to 600 mm), operation to 5,200 psi or 12,000 feet (3000m) depth, dc voltage or current analog output, and SenSet field-adjustable scaling.
