LVDT Sensors Add 4- to 20-mA Output Capability

NewTek Sensor Solutions expands the capabilities of its DC LVDT technology with 4- to 20-mA output capabilities to meet the needs of industrial monitoring and feedback applications.  In addition to offering these versions of its free-core and spring-loaded LVDTs, the company customizes 4- to 2-0mA position sensors to user specs.


The loop-powered LVDTs are viable for use in liquid level gaging, robotic automation, and industrial automation controls.  The 4-20mA output signal provided by the sensors integrates with a variety of PLCs, digital indicators, computer-based data processors, and QC data collection systems.  It also allows for long transmissions and greater noise immunity.  


Sensors 2019 Hits Silicon Valley June 25-27!

Join 7,000+ engineers this June in San Jose at the sensor industry’s biggest event! With 65+ Technical Sessions, 100+ Leading Speakers, 10 new and updated tracks, and 300+ Interactive Exhibits, there’s more opportunity than ever to connect with this booming industry and the technologies driving it. See thousands of the newest technologies in action, learn about the latest applications, and develop invaluable partnerships at the only event dedicated to sensors, connectivity, and systems.


NewTek offers hermetically-sealed versions of its 4 to 20 mA free-core and spring-loaded LVDTs capable of withstanding dirt, water, steam and other harsh elements.  Constructed of TIG welded stainless steel, these DC-operated linear position sensors operate in hostile environments while the loop wiring connects to instrumentation remotely positioned in benign locations. 


Additionally, the 4- to 20-mA sensors offer high resolutions with a standard 0.25% and optional 0.1% maximum non-linearity. Operating from 11 to 28 VDC, the dc-operated linear position sensors are available in full ranges from 0.10” (2.5 mm) to 20” (500 mm).   NewTek offers its 4-20mA output sensors with built-in surge and polarity protection to guard against voltage spikes and hookup errors.
