LVDTs are position sensors with coil technology that consists of one primary and two secondary windings. The core inside the coil achieves high magnetic permeability and temperature resistance by means of a special iron-nickel alloy. By supplying the primary winding with alternating voltage, voltage is induced in the secondary windings via the core. The opposing voltages of the funnel-shaped secondary windings offset one another when the core is in the centre position. The positional change to the core creates an opposing voltage change in the coils, which is transformed into an analogue output signal of (0...10 V / 4...20 mA) via a measurement amplifier.
WayCon has developed the LVDT LV series sensors from the ground up. In addition to the innovative coil technology, a special sealing concept and an individual bearing guide have also been developed to ensure a high degree of protection and load capacity.
