linear displacement transducer / inductive / industrial
VDTs (Linear Variable Differential Transformers) are inductive sensors excellent for use in harsh industrial environments, e.g. high temperature and pressure ranges,
as well as high accelerations and measuring cycles.
The SLT series with its spring loaded and air actuated versions completes the product range of robust inductive sensors. There are three different functional variants
available to meet the demands of all measuring tasks:
1. Spring loaded mechanism: The push rod is fully extended by an internal return spring.
2. Pneumatic version 1: The push rod extends by applying pressurized air. An internal spring retracts the push rod after releasing the pressure.
3. Pneumatic version 2: The push rod retracts by applying pressurized air. An internal spring extends the push rod after releasing the pressure.
Based on the SL series, the SLT probes are also characterized by an ultra robust construction and a fully stainless steel housing which makes them suitable for harsh
environments. The combination of a hardchrome plated shaft with 6 mm diameter and precision bearings in a stainless steel housing guarantees highest resistance to
lateral forces on the push rod.
