July 10, 2018 - NewTek Sensor Solutions introduced a miniaturized series of AC-operated position sensors with a 3/8” diameter size that provides linear position feedback in industrial applications with space and weight restrictions.
Resistant to harsh and high-pressure environments, the NewTek M-375 Series Miniature AC LVDTs provide dynamic measurement for machine operations such as robotics, automatic inspection equipment, plastic injection molding, hydraulic cylinder and valve positioning, downhole drilling, and dimensional gaging. In addition to performing in the aerospace, oil & gas and manufacturing industries, these LVDTs serve as components within medical devices.
With a corrosion-resistant, nickel-iron alloy housing and core, the sensors operate in temperature extremes of -65°F to +275°F (-55°C to +135°C), with optionally extended ranges of -65°F to 400°F (55°C to 204°C ). A vented design exposing the interior coil assembly equalizes pressure inside and outside the LVDT, enabling endurance to high pressure and temperature as well as shock and vibration.
The M-375 Series Miniature AC LVDTs are available in measurement ranges from ± 0.025 to ± 1 inch and provide linearity of < ± 0.25% over the full range with feature repeatability of <0.01% of full range. Replacements to magnetostrictive sensors, these miniature position sensors are interchangeable with most manufacturer units and can serve as drop-in replacements. Sensors operate with differential input LVDT signal conditioning electronics provided by NewTek Sensors and as part of sensor control systems that monitor and provide alerts on equipment operating conditions.
