LVIT Linear Position Sensor
Lower cost, more robust alternative to magnetostrictive sensors
The MR-7 Series LVIT (Linear Variable Inductance Transducer) Position Sensors from Alliance Sensors Group has been designed as an alternative to magnetostrictive sensors and has more robust construction and a lower cost of ownership. The unit can be port mounted in industrial or moble hydraulic cylinders and pneumatic actuators. These MR-7 Series sensors are based on a proprietary contactless inductive sensing technology that employs a 7 mm diameter probe with a shorter stroke-to-length ratio than most other technologies, and uses a gun drilled hole in the cylinder rod for sensing the rod position rather than requiring a ring magnet assembly. An MR-7 has a 1.75 inch (44.5 mm) hex sensor head with a male o-ring port thread, so it can be mounted in the same SAE dash 8 or 18 mm 0-ring port as magnetostrictive sensors. Because they are contactless, MR-7 Series sensors do not wear out and have no signal deterioration over the life of the sensors, and because it uses an inductive coil, an MR-7 sensor can withstand much greater shock and vibrations than other technologies. One very useful element of the MR-7 sensors is ASG’s proprietary SenSet™ feature whereby a sensor’s analog output can be easily adjusted in the field after installation too match the range of motion of the cylinder rod.
