Linear Variable Inductance Transducers (LVITs) from Alliance Sensors Group convert the linear displacement of an object into a proportional electrical signal output of 0-10V or 4-20mA (depending on model). Available from AutomationDirect (Cumming, GA), LVITs are contactless devices designed for dimension or position measuring applications where the sensing element cannot be attached to the object being measured. LVITs exhibit outstanding repeatability and are used when higher accuracy is required.
Configuration styles include spring loaded with ball tip, 19mm (0.75in) cylinder with rod eye mounting, and 27mm (1.05in) cylinder with rod eyes. Stroke lengths vary from 6.35mm (0.25in) to 457.2mm (18in).
