LVDT Position Sensor Blog

Configured with a float, Macro Sensors HSIR Series LVDT Linear Position Transmitters are serving as level sensors to measure liquid level changes from a few inches to several feet in gauging tank level volumes. In this LVDT level sensor configuration, a s...

For over fifty years, the LVDT linear position sensor remains a reliable tool for linear position feedback for various laboratory, industrial, military and aerospace applications.  An inherently reliable device, LVDT position sensors are capable of p...

In the past, LVDT sensors suffered from two problems: cost and space requirements. For example, in a 0-10" stroke, the LVDT length could have been as long as 23".  Modern layer winding techniques and computer-based winding machines enable the reducti...

Process instrumentation output today is predemoninantly analog, including that expressed in voltages and currents. However, digital output is gaining ground as many of today's more complex process control systems require communications that can only be de...

Macro Sensors LVDT Linear Position Sensors are replacing proximity sensors in the automated control systems of hot air, heat staking machinery used by many high technology and manufacturing industries in the manufacture of thermoplastic assembli...

Macro Sensors has redesigned its web site to simplify the selection of linear and rotary positon sensors by specific industry application.  To help web visitors find the right linear or rotary position sensor for their specific application requ...

Resolution— The smallest core position change that can be observed in the output of an LVDT  is called resolution. Since an LVDT Linear Position Sensor operates on electromagnetic coupling principles in a friction-free structure, it can me...

Since the 1950s, power generation remains one of the largest market segments serviced by LVDT linear position sensors.  As simple devices with only a few coils of wire and a ferrous core, LVDTs can withstand high levels of shock and vibration, get ex...

With a lightweight, low mass core and a compact 3/8” diameter, Macro Sensors CD Series of Subminiature LVDT Position Sensors offer the low weight, compact size and accuracy necessary for many of today’s aerospace applications with tight space ...

Since introduced more than six decades ago, the LVDT linear position sensor remains one of the most reliable and accurate tools for liner position feedback on the market. Through the advent of microelectronics and new manufacturing techniques, t...

  Subsea applications pose special challenges for reliable LVDT operation.  Due to the presence of chemically hostile seawater that attacks common metals, linear position sensors constructed of stainless steel can become quickly corroded an...

An innovative use of LVDT Linear Position technology is making Pressure Sensors more environmentally resistant, dependable and economical for use in critical applications that was once too expensive or prohibited based on design configuration.&n...

The LVDT Linear Position Sensor is a robust sensing device applicable for use in a range of position measurement applications.  Constructed of stainless and with no moving parts, LVDTs are often the best linear feedback technology in terms ...

Robots and robotic arms rely on sensors to determine range of motion or force applied to an object. Attached to a robotic arm, the Macro Sensors Miniature LVDT Linear Position Sensor detects position change when an actuator moves the robot...

LVDT Linear Position Sensors and Potentiometers often compete with each other in similar applications.  However, each technology varies by stroke, resolution, cost, environmental resistance, as well as reliability.  Here are some reasons why mod...

Calibration is necessary before the installation of an AC- operated linear position sensor to ensure accuracy.  Calibration corrects any slight variances between sensors, helping to improve repeatability. Because of the linearity of LVDT Sensor outpu...

In the past, LVDT Sensors were limited by its own sensitivity to the environment that caused errors in linear feedback. New manufacturing techniques, electronics and construction materials extend the use of LVDT Linear Position Sensors...

  When initially introduced fifty years ago, all LVDT linear position sensors were AC-operated and required external oscillators, carrier amplifiers, demodulators and filers to operate.   The introduction of high-density microelectronics e...

When sensor accuracy is critical and networked communications are desirable, digital communications serve as a more reliable and cost effective alternative to analog output.   When using a sensor like an LVDT to monitor operating parameters suc...

Macro Sensors has updated its website with a new website navigation.  With customer support being a top priority, the updated navigation makes finding the right product easy and contacting Macro Sensors simpler.   In order to connect visitors di...

Macro Sensors Introduces LVDT/RVDT Signal Conditioner with Analog and RS485 Outputs, Extended 5 Year Warranty Pennsauken, NJ, May 14, 2013…Macro Sensors introduces the EAZY-CAL LVC 4000 Signal Conditioner with analog (4-20mA or user selectable vol...

In the July 2011 issue of Flow Control magazine, AST contributed information regarding the construction of the AST5100 wet/wet differential pressure transducer.  The "core" of the article covers how LVDT's are used in combination with a metal diaphra...
