Get more sensor for less

H.G. Schaevitz LLC Alliance Sensors has introduced its first spring loaded Linear Variable Inductive Transducer (LVIT) series. The LRS-18 series are spring loaded, contactless devices designed for dimension or position measuring applications in factory automation and in various industrial and commercial applications such as automotive testing, mil/aero test stands, robotic arms, and packaging equipment, where the sensing element cannot be attached to the object being measured.

Existing technologies with similar electrical specifications are 228mm long to measure 25mm; the equivalent LRS-18 is 100mm long.

LRS-18 sensors have a 19mm diameter aluminium or stainless steel body with an M18 x 1 thread and come with two hex jam nuts for installation in place of an 18mm analogue proximity sensor. These sensors use a 6mm diameter probe equipped with an AGD No. 9 contact tip, and are offered with either an axial cable or a connector.

Operating from a variety of DC voltages, the sensors are available with a choice of four analogue outputs and they all include ASG's SenSet field calibration feature.
