TE Connectivity Hydraulic LVDT Sensors
August 11, 2020 | By MRO Magazine
Optimized for hydraulic valves and actuators, TE Connectivity LVDT position sensors are accurate, reliable, compact and adaptable. LVDT position sensor can measure spool position within one-thousandth of an inch and infinite resolution.
“TE continues to offer one of the broadest range of LVDT position sensors designed to meet the harsh environment demands of hydraulic applications,” said Shane Lauth, senior project manager. “Customers are able to get a hydraulic LVDT with the form, fit, function and AC or DC processing needed for their system design. These sensors enable better system and feedback controls with high accuracy and fast response time.”
Friction-free operation enables reliable sensor life and repeatability, allowing hydraulic LVDTs to be used in demanding, high-cycle applications. They are hermetically sealed and can be mounted inside valves, capable of withstanding high pressure (up to 10,000 psi) and harsh exposure such as hydraulic fluid.
TE’s hydraulic LVDT compact designs can fit in restricted spaces and maximize stroke length in a given area. With stroke lengths as low as +0.005 inches.
The LVDT position sensors are suited for use in industrial and ICT applications.
