Spring-Loaded LVIT Linear Position Sensor - Get More Sensor for Less

Moorestown, New Jersey, November 30, 2021… H.G. Schaevitz LLC Alliance Sensors is pleased to introduce its first spring-loaded LVIT (Linear Variable Inductive Transducer) series. The LRS-18 series are spring-loaded, contactless devices designed for dimension or position measuring applications in factory automation and in various industrial and commercial applications, such as; automotive testing, mil/aero test stands, robotic arms, and packaging equipment, where the sensing element cannot be attached to the object being measured. The LRS-18 stroke-to-length ratio is excellent. Existing technologies with similar electrical specifications are 9” long to measure 1”. The equivalent LRS-18 is only 4” long.

LRS-18 Features:

-  EXCELLENT stroke-to-length ratio

-  Contactless operation prevents internal wear out from dithering or rapid cycling

-  Ranges from 0.5 to 4.0 inches (12.5 to 100 mm) 

-  M18 x 1 threaded aluminum or stainless steel body with mounting nuts

-  Maximum tip force on the item being measured is 1 pound

LRS-18 sensors have a 0.75 inch (19 mm) diameter aluminum or stainless steel body with an M18 x 1 thread and come with two hex jam nuts for easy installation in place of an 18 mm analog proximity sensor. These sensors use a 0.25 inch diameter probe equipped with an AGD No. 9 contact tip, and are offered with either an axial cable or a connector.

Operating from a variety of DC voltages, the sensors are available with a choice of four analog outputs and they all include ASG’s proprietary SenSet™ field calibration feature.
