Narrow-Bodied, High-Performance Sensor for Precise Linear Positioning
Product News Monday, January 28, 2013: Ametek Solartron Metrology
Solarton Metrology , a unit of AMETEK, Inc., has updated its Optimum Sensor Series with the addition of theOP/25narrow-bodied, high-performance sensor. The OP/25 linear variable displacement transducer (LVDT) offers a small body diameter, large radial bore clearance, rugged construction and good measurement range to body length ratio.
The OP/25 is an addition to the Optimum Series LVDT sensors that are ideal for process control and research applications, especially where space for measurements is restricted. With a free core design, these sensors can be used in applications with moving parts and where zero friction and hysteresis are required. The free core design is available with an optional lightweight core that is ideal for mounting onto small, rapidly moving structures without affecting their performance and integrity.
With its good measurement range to body length ratio (+ 25/50 to 15mm), along with its narrow body diameter (9.5mm), the OP/25 is ideally suited for applications within tight spaces. Its rugged construction ensures a long life as well as the ability to withstand adverse conditions, such as fast repetition of moving parts. The OP/25 has an operating temperature range of up to 200°C allowing the use of probes in harsh temperatures.
Solartron Metrology is a world leader in electronic instruments used in ultra precision manufacturing and a unit of AMETEK, Inc., a leading global manufacturer of electronic instruments and electromechanical devices with annual sales of more than £2.0 billion.
