Position Sensors Dive Deep

(NewTek Sensor Solutions)

NewTek Sensor Solutions’ P-Series high-pressure and water-resistant LVDT position sensors boast reliable position measurement in deep subsea environments and other extreme high-pressure applications such as pressure test vessels and hydraulic actuators. These sensors serve as replacements for load cells, pots. and magnetostrictive sensors in underwater use.

 

The ac-powered linear position sensors are constructed of heavy-duty, high-pressure alloys to operate under pressures up to 20,000 psi and operating temperatures of -65° to +400°F (-55° to +200°C). Absence of electronics also makes the LVDTs viable for long-term operation in harsh ocean environments.

 

Other features include:

  • A 0.52-inch diameter housing constructed of special alloys avoids corrosion for long-term operation
  • Nominal range of +0.90” (+22.86 mm) and more
  • Ratiometric output for reduced thermal sensitivity
  • Excellent linearity of < ± 0.15% full range
  • High-cycle life
  • High sensitivity and resolution
