LVIT Sensors Handle High Pressure

LVIT Sensors Handle High Pressure
Alliance Sensors Group

Groomed for subsea environments and the demands of oil and gas exploration, the SS-7 series linear variable inductive transducer (LVIT) sensors embed into hydraulic cylinders and use the gun-drilled piston rods as targets, sensing their position without the need for a magnet. The sensors can be submerged to a depth of 12,000 ft. 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 inches (25 to 600 mm), operation to 5,200 psi or 12,000 feet (3000 m) depth, and dc-voltage or dc-current analog outputs.
