Spring Loaded LVIT Linear Position Sensor Gives More For Le$$

Boasting more functionality at an economic price point, Alliance Sensors’ first spring loaded Linear Variable Inductive Transducer (LVIT) contactless position sensors are designed for dimension or position measuring applications in factory automation and in various industrial and commercial applications and situations where the sensing element cannot be attached to the object being measured. The LRS-18 stroke to length ratio is notable. Existing technologies with similar electrical specifications are 9” long to measure 1” while the equivalent LRS-18 is 4” long. Features include ranges from 12.5 to 100 mm (0.5 to 4.0 inches), M18 x 1 threaded aluminum or stainless steel body with mounting nuts, and a maximum tip force on the item being measured is 1 pound


LRS-18 sensors have a 19 mm (0.75 inch) diameter aluminum or stainless steel body with an M18 x 1 thread and come with two hex jam nuts for easy installation in place of an 18 mm analog proximity sensor. These sensors use a 0.25 inch diameter probe equipped with an AGD No. 9 contact tip, and are offered with either an axial cable or a connector. Operating from a variety of DC voltages, the sensors are available with a choice of four analog outputs and they all include ASG’s proprietary SenSet field calibration feature. For more specs and features, you should check out a LRS-18 datasheet.

An accelerometer measures the rate of change of an object’s velocity to monitor its movement.

From cell phones to industrial manufacturing, knowing when an object (or a person!) is nearby is a basic sensing requirement.
