Schaevitz Releases LVIT Sensor Series

Harold G. Schaevitz Industries recently released its ILPS-45 Series inductive, contactless linear position sensors using LVIT technology.

The ILPS-45 linear position sensors are designed 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 ILPS-45 Series was designed after identifying the wants and needs of engineers in the industrial world, so the sensors can withstand the high vibration and severe shock environment found in steel, aluminum, and paper mills, as well as extremes of temperature and humidity found in most outdoor applications, where many other types of linear position sensors cannot survive.

The series uses a proprietary inductive technology that allows it to replace traditional DC-LVDTs in most applications. Its simple coil design permits the sensor to be both shorter and more rugged than its DC-LVDT counterpart while operating over a wider temperature range.

The ILPS-45 Series is available with optional mounting flanges, rod eye ends, connector or cable terminations, and a captive connecting rod assembly that cannot break loose. The SenSet range adjustability feature allows the user to scale the sensor’s zero and full-span output to the actual range of motion of the workpiece being measured after the sensor is installed.

Other features include an operating temperature range of -40°C to 105°C (-40°F to 221°F), ranges from 4 to 18 inches (100 to 450 mm), double shaft seals to keep dirt and grime out of the bore, axial or radial connector or cable terminations, and
1.75-inch (44.5-mm) outer diameter body with 5-mm wall thickness.
