New linear position sensor for extreme environment

H. G. Schaevitz’s Alliance Sensors Group released its LA-25-A series LVDT linear position sensors, designed to handle extreme industrial environments. Available in ranges from 3” to 15”, the LA-25-A is ideal for roller gap positioning, process valve displacement, head box and actuator position feedback. It has the durability to withstand the harsh environments found in steam and hydro power plants; paper, steel and aluminium mills; die and stamping presses; building and bridge monitoring; and industrial automation and fluid power systems. It can operate in hostile factory environments such as lubricant and chemical mists, airborne grit and dust, and typical industrial wash downs.

The LA-25-A LVDT linear sensor has a sturdy 1”-diameter heavy wall housing of aluminium or stainless steel, two double-contact shaft seals that keep fluids and solid contaminants out of its bore, and offers a choice of axial connectors or a cable in a metal cord grip.

The LA-25-A series permits a variety of mountings, including standard saddle-type clamps, a two-hole flange that screws onto its front bushing, and a single hole mount through a bulkhead up to 1/8 inch thick. Coupled with ASG’s SC-100 industrial LVDT DIN-rail-mountable signal conditioner, an LA-25-A LVDT becomes an ideal solution for heavy-duty industrial applications for position sensing.
