Alliance Sensors Group, a division of H.G. Schaevitz, has broadened its linear position product-line of linear variable inductive transducer (LVITs) to include three series, each targeting different applications. LVITs are contactless devices designed for factory automation and a variety of heavy-duty industrial or commercial applications such as solar cell positioners, wind turbine prop pitch and brakes, chute or gate positioners on off-road or agri-vehicles, bridge expansion and rail sun kink monitoring, robotic arm position feedback, snowplough positioning, automotive/motor sports and packaging equipment. With their compact yet robust design, superior performance and excellent stroke-to-length ratio, ASG’s LVITs are ideal for both industrial and OEM position sensing applications.
The LR-19 has a ¾” OD aluminium body and is offered in ranges up to 200mm. The LR-19 is ideal for OEM and factory automation applications where small size and low cost are a premium. The LR-27 series is more robust than the LR-19 and is offered in 1” OD aluminium or stainless steel housing. The LR-27 is also for industrial OEM and factory automation applications where the application or environment is too extreme for the LR-19. The LV-45 series units were designed to survive extreme environments, being installed on bridges, train tracks, and off road vehicles for construction and agriculture.
