Displacement Sensor - S Series

The S Series of LVDT Displacement Transducers is the culmination of many years' experience gained from Solartron Metrology's highly successful Mach One range plus careful note of market feedback.
The Stainless steel body with improved sealing options of IP65 or IP67, coupled with new polymer guides with rigid carriers, ensure that the transducers keep working accurately and reliably, especially in wet or corrosive conditions.
An unusually large bore to core clearance is maintained throughout the range, even on transducers fitted with onboard signal conditioning, enabling easier installation and making the assembly more forgiving of misalignment.

    Features:
  • 5mm - 300mm measurement range
  • <0.2 linearity
  • Hermetically sealed and submersible on request
  • IP65 or 67 on request
