LVDT is an acronym, it stands for Linear Variable Differential Transformer. LVDTs are a common type of non contacting linear transducer.

Linear transducers are used to measure linear displacement or movement of other components.

LVDTs have seven main components within them, they are; primary coil, two secondary coils, a ferromagnetic core (or slug), a tube (or bobbin), a shield and a shaft. The position is sensed when the ferromagnetic core moves within the sensor. For more information on the inner workings of LVDT sensors, take a look at the article on the TE website.

LVDT uses

LVDTs have different types of uses. They can be used as the main transducer within the application to measure displacement and convert it into an electrical signal. Or, they can be used as a secondary transducer, in these types of applications an LVDT is used to measure either force, weight or pressure.

Because they are robust and offer outstanding repetition, LVDTs are we suited for use in different industries requiring ongoing measurement.

LVDT Advantages

There are many advantages to using an LVDT for Linear Position Measurement applications, they are;

Fast response time - for demanding applications, LVDTs ensure that time is managed efficiently.

Robust - LVDTs are robust which makes them well suited to a range of industries.

Versatile - there are many different configurations available for LVDTs making them very Versatile. Make sure you contact us to ensure the right sensor is selected for your application.

Friction Free - LVDTs are non contacting sensors, they have no wearing parts, this gives them a longer life and ensures accuracy over a long period of time.
