New 8mm inductive LVDT probes for medium-to-high volume OEM requirements
28 May 2013
Micro-Epsilon has introduced a cost effective inductive LVDT gauging sensor (probe) that is ideal for medium-to-high volume OEM production environments.
The new induSENSOR DTA-XG8 gauge sensor is available in two basic versions – as a pneumatic push sensor or as a spring loaded (feather-touch) gauge sensor providing very low tip forces.
The stainless steel housing of the DTA-XG8 sensor has a diameter of just 8mm, which enables the sensor to be installed in areas where space is tight or restricted. The standard sensor is protected to IP54 (without bellows) but to prevent the ingress of dust and water between the sensor tip and housing, an IP65 version with bellows seal is available.
The product family includes measuring ranges of +/-1mm, +/-3mm, +/-5mm and +/-10mm. Linearity is 0.3% (FSO) of the measurement range. Resolution is dependent upon the drive circuit. The MSC710 series, for example, has a resolution of 0.00018% (FSO). Operating temperature range is from -20 deg C to +80 deg C without bellows and 0 to +80 deg C with bellows.
All sensors are supplied with a 3m axial cable, and both the sensor and the electronics can be customised for high volume projects.
