Linear Position Sensor Invades Steam Turbine Valve Control Systems
Alliance Sensors Group

Designed for valve position sensing applications in steam turbine control systems, the PG Series LVDT linear position sensors employ cores that cannot break loose from the core's connecting / operating rod. They have no connectors, the sensor has screw clamping terminals that accept No. 24-14 AWG wire. Other features include standard body clamps, flange mounts, ball joint couplings, and rod eye ends, continuous sensor operation in ambient temperatures up to 350°F (175°C). PG Series LVDTs are available in five full scale ranges from 0-to-3 to 0-to-15 inches (75 to 380 mm). Models include the PGHD Heavy Duty series LVDT with a 1-1/16 inch body diameter and the PGSD Super Duty series LVDT with a 1-5/16 inch body diameter. Either series is available certified for operation in mild radiation environments at extra cost.
