GHSE/GHSER 750 series

A new line of 24Vdc-operated LVDT position sensors from Macro Sensors, a division of Howard A. Schaevitz Technologies, is designed for a variety of industrial position measurement and dimensional gaging applications such as SPC data collection, electronic dial indicators, gaging systems, and large shaft TIR measurement. The new hermetically-sealed GHSE/GHSER 750 series delivers an output of 0 to 10Vdc over the full sensing range.

The GHSE/GHSER 750 series DC-LVDT position sensors are said to generate a true pre-calibrated 0 to 10V output. Available in a nominal range of 2.5mm to 100mm, these spring-loaded DC-LVDT position sensors offer repeatability of 0.000025 inches with non-linearity less than or equal to &plusm;0.10 percent of full scale output (FSO). A new feature of these units is the ability to be powered directly from a PLC power supply.

The rugged 3/4-inch LVDT position sensors are constructed entirely of stainless steel. For additional protection against harsh industrial environments, coil windings meet IEC standard IP-68. The electrical terminations are MIL-spec sealed connectors.

The GHSER units have radially-mounted connectors that provide a shorter installed length for use in locations with space restrictions. A detachable mating connector, supplied with every unit, permits repair or replacement of damaged or severed cables without the need to replace the entire LVDT, as with units with integral cables.

Pricing for the GHSE/GHSER 750 series starts at $536.
