Compact, high performance eddy current measurement system

Micro-epsilon has released the eddyNCDT 3005, a compact, high performance eddy current sensor designed for fast, high precision displacement, distance and position measurements.

The sensor system features active temperature compensation, an IP67 rated housing and is said to withstand operating temperatures of up to 180°C. The system is suited for machine integration, as well as for single or volume OEM requirements.

A choice of sensors is available with measuring ranges from 1 to 6mm for use on steel or aluminium measuring objects. Frequency response is claimed to be 5kHz (-3dB) and temperature compensation range is from 10 to 125°C.
