Position Sensors Dive Deep

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.
