The highly rugged and robust LVDT offers long-term operation within the high temperatures and harsh environments of steel rolling mills. Environmentally sealed to IEC standard IP-68, rated to 185°F (85°C), and protected against dust ingress, this linear position sensor resists moisture and contamination from airborne particulates and other dirt and grime inherent in steel mills.
While other LVDTs require a great deal of downtime for installation or replacement, this unit is specifically designed for easy calibration, configuration and installation. A radial configuration with rod ends simplifies installation of the LVDT as there is no need for core rods for connection. Rod-ends make mounting the non-contacting Steel Mill Position Sensor easier as units can quite literally be dropped into place, which saves on installation time. Units also incorporate pre-calibrated on-board electronics, eliminating the need to configure signal conditioners. Electrical null adjustment also makes for easy positioning.
Macro Sensors offers its non-contacting Steel Mill Position Sensor in 0-10V, 4-20mA, +/-10V outputs. Based on the company’s popular HSDR Series of Hermetically-Sealed DC-Operated LVDT Position Sensors, units are available in ranges of ±0.015 inch (±0.38 mm) to ±10.0 inches (±250 mm).
