Compact linear displacement sensor
Lord Corporation’s LS-LVDT series compact linear displacement sensor is designed for use with Lord sensing DEMOD signal conditioners. The sensor is made from a stainless-steel and high-temperature polymer construction, and is useful for linear control and precision measurement applications. The LS-LVDT provides a fast response and is designed to withstand harsh environments. Sensors are available in 50 mm, 100 mm, and 150 mm stroke lengths. The compact sensor design provides high stroke-to-length ratios, with the sensor body only 25 mm longer than the stroke length. Key applications include process control for production line monitoring, miniature position control elements, measuring strain and deflection in materials and structures, and dimensional gauging for quality control. LS-LVDT use examples include automation control on robots; feedback on linear slides and actuators; and flap, valve, and joint position.
