LZ-13 Series
LVIT Miniature Linear Position Sensor
Through-bore LVIT Position Sensor for Applications Where Size is a Constraint and/or Superior Stroke-to-Length Ratio is Required

The LZ-13 series (Linear Variable Inductance Transducer) miniature position sensors are inductive, contactless devices designed for use in factory automation or assembly machinery applications where space is a premium. The LVIT is offered in nominal full-scale ranges from 2.5 to 200 mm (0.1 to 8 inches) with an excellent stroke-to-length ratio. The sensor has 12.7 mm (1/2 inch) outside diameter stainless steel body with a 1 m cable for I/O connections. The 4.78 mm (.188 inch) diameter through-bore of an LZ-13 provides clearance for its 4 mm (.157 inch) diameter moving target rod with M4 thread and hex nut, which is made of the same material as its housing. This through-bore feature also means that the sensor is not subject to damage from typical mechanical overstroking. I/O connections are made via a 1 m (39 inch) axial cable and includes ASG's proprietary Senset™  field recalibration feature.
