MOORESTOWN, NJ: Alliance Sensors Group, a division of H.G. Schaevitz, and a provider of Linear Position Sensors, Rotary/Angular Sensors, LVDT Signal Conditioners and Support Electronics uncovers LV-45 series. The inductive, contactless linear position sensor has been designed using their Linear Variable Inductance Transducer (LVIT) Technology. The sensors are developed for measuring applications requiring rugged devices, whether measuring position of steam turbine valves, mounted in a paper mill head box or calendar roll stand, or outdoors fastened to a building, bridge or structure.

The LVIT technology, a linear position sensing technology extends price-to-performance ratio compared to other linear position sensing technologies such as LVDTs, linear potentiometers, and magnetostrictive devices. In addition, it also offers stroke-to-length ratio of any contactless linear position sensor, because their overall length only increases by a relatively small percentage beyond their stroke.

The LV-45 series resists the high vibration and severe shock environment found in steel, aluminum, and paper mills. It can withstand extreme temperature and humidity found in most outdoor applications where most of the other types of linear position sensors will not work. As it runs on a proprietary inductive technology it can replace traditional DC-Linear Variable Displacement Transducers (LVDT) in most applications.

Sensorscoil are designed to be both shorter and more rugged while operating over a wider temperature range. After the sensor is installed, the SenSet range adjustability enables users to scale the sensor's zero and full span output to the actual range of motion of the work piece being measured. The series is made available with mounting flanges, rod eye ends, connector or cable terminations, and a captive connecting rod assembly that cannot break loose.
