Linear Position Sensors Bulk Up For Civil Engineering Duty

The ILPS-45 series inductive, contactless linear position sensors using LVIT technology take on rugged measuring applications such as measuring position of steam turbine valves. They can withstand the high vibration and severe shock environment found in steel, aluminum, and paper mills, as well as extremes of temperature and humidity found in most outdoor applications where many other types of linear position sensors cannot survive. The ILPS-45 series uses a proprietary inductive technology that allows it to replace traditional DC-LVDTs in most applications. A simple coil design permits the sensor to be both shorter and more rugged than its DC-LVDT counterpart while operating over a wider temperature range.  The ILPS-45 series is available with optional mounting flanges, rod eye ends, connector or cable terminations, and a captive connecting rod assembly that cannot break loose. The SenSet range adjustability feature allows the user to scale the sensor's zero and full span output to the actual range of motion of the workpiece being measured after the sensor is installed.  More data and full specs are available on the ILPS-45 series product page.
