LVDT Probes / Transducers
A dimensional gage probe, also known as a Linear Variable Differential Transformer (LVDT) transducer or sensor, is physically used to contact the part being measured. The LVDT is an essential part for most contact type gage systems. The LVDT is extremely robust and can survive in the harshest environment. When integrated with the KurtUSB interface hardware, the LVDT can provide resolutions down to a few millionths of an inch. The LVDT probes from Kurt are available with both spring or pneumatic extend.
Kurt Engineered Systems provides four classes of LVDT probes, depending on the LVDT sensor needs of your application:
LVDT Analog: Analog Pneumatic Extend Probes
LVDT Analog: Analog Spring Extend Probes
LVDT Digital: Digital Pneumatic Extend Probes
LVDT Digital: Digital Spring Extend Probes
LDVT Sensor Features
To ensure quality of manufactured parts, LVDT transducers are used to gauge dimensions and produce exceptionally accurate measurements. Typical LVDT gage probes available from Kurt as standard products have an 8mm diameter body and physical lengths ranging from approximately 25mm to 200mm. Standard measurement ranges are available from 0.25mm to 20mm.
The durability of our LVDT transducers makes them ideal for demanding industry uses and their precision provides you with laboratory-level accuracy, with all displacement sensed exactly.
