Alliance Sensors Group has introduced its GHS-19 series of spring-loaded LVIT (Linear Variable Inductive Transducer) gaging sensors. They are contactless devices designed for dimensional gaging and position measurements in factory automation and in various industrial and commercial applications where the sensing element cannot be attached to the object being measured.
Using LVIT technology with its simple coil design, the Alliance Sensors series is said to offer excellent stroke-to-length ratios.
Series features include:
- low cost drop-in replacement for spring-loaded LVDTs, with same connector and pinouts;
- 0.75 in. (19 mm) diameter aluminum or stainless steel body with1/2-20 mounting thread;
- full scale ranges from 0.25 to 4.0 in. (6 to 100 mm); 1 pound (0.45 kgf) maximum tip force; and,
- contactless operation prevents sensor wearout from dithering or rapid cycling.
Operating from a variety of DC voltages, these sensors are available with a choice of one of four analog outputs, and they all include ASG’s proprietary SenSet field calibration feature.
