Inductive Path Sensors Come In Miniature Format

The new Inelta ILAT Series Miniature LVDT Sensors provide precision measurements of position and path in the range of single-digit millimeters.  The sensors of this series are available in Models ILAT 2, ILAT4 and ILAT10 for the exact measurements of ±1 mm, ±2 mm or ±5 mm traveling distances. Owing to their tiny dimensions with a housing length of 79 mm and a diameter of only 8 mm at a weight of 30 g (including cable), the sensors will navigate even within very tight-fitting conditions.

 

Because of the inductive LVDT principle (Linear Variable Differential Transformer), in which a coil within the sensor with a primary winding and two secondary windings transforms the linear motions of the measuring sensor contact-free into a single electronic signal, the ILAT Sensors operate free from wear and provide a linearity tolerance of <0.25%. They are also available with an even smaller linearity tolerance of <0.1%.

Fierce AI Week

Register today for Fierce AI Week - a free virtual event | August 10-12

Advances in AI and Machine Learning are adding an unprecedented level of intelligence to everything through capabilities such as speech processing and image & facial recognition. An essential event for design engineers and AI professionals, Engineering AI sessions during Fierce AI Week explore some of the most innovative real-world applications today, the technological advances that are accelerating adoption of AI and Machine Learning, and what the future holds for this game-changing technology.

 

Even with their tiny dimensions, the ILAT Sensors are distinguished by their robust design with a stainless-steel housing in protection class IP65 – optionally also in IP67.  Nominal temperature rating is 0° – 70°C.   The carefully designed linear guiding operates by virtue of a locking mechanism of the probe and can provide more than 10 million cycles.  These versatile sensors are suitable for many applications, including medical technology, engineering, agriculture and navigation up to testing facilities or manufacture of special purpose machinery. 

 

Fitting the ILAT Path Sensors are the Inelta external sensor amplifiers IMA2-LVDT, available for signals in the ranges of 0..5V, 0..10V, ±5V, ±10V, 0/4..20mA and ISM-LVDT for 0…10V- or 0..20mA signals.  Our print module IVM-LVDT with a readout of 0..10V signals, is also available, suitable for integration into your electronics. 

 

Additionally, Inelta can provide custom sensor designs with further optional features such as custom-made calibration, cable lengths and expanded temperature ranges. For more information, visit http://www.hoffmann-krippner.com/sensors-displacement.html or call 770-487-1950.
