Spring-Loaded LVIT Position Sensor Is Cost Effective

Alliance Sensors’ GHS-19 series spring-loaded Linear Variable Inductive Transducer (LVIT) gaging sensors are contactless devices designed for dimensional gaging and position measurements in factory automation and in various industrial and commercial applications. Using LVIT technology with its simple coil design, the GHS-19 series offers reliable stroke-to-length ratios. Features include:

  • Low cost drop-in replacement for spring-loaded LVDTs, with same connector and pinouts
  • 0.75-inch (19 mm) diameter aluminum or stainless-steel body with1/2-20 mounting thread
  • EXCELLENT stroke-to-length ratio means much shorter housings
  • Full scale ranges from 0.25 to 4.0 inches (13 to 100 mm)
  • 1 pound (0.45 kgf) maximum tip force
  • Contactless operation prevents sensor wearout from dithering or rapid cycling

GHS-19 sensors have a 0.75-inch (19 mm) diameter aluminum or stainless-steel body with a 1/2-20 UNF-2A threaded nose 1.5 inches (38 mm) long and two 0.75-inch (19 mm) hex jam nuts for drop-in installation in place of spring-loaded DC-LVDT gage heads.

The sensors’ 0.25 dia. probes are equipped with a No. 9 contact tip, producing a maximum tip force of 1 pound (0.45 kgf). They are offered with a PT02-10-6P. Operating from a variety of DC voltages, these sensors are available with a choice of one of four analog outputs, and they all include ASG’s proprietary SenSet field calibration feature.
