GHSx-19 Series LVIT spring-loaded position sensors
August 1, 2018 By Manufacturing AUTOMATION
August 1, 2018 – Alliance Sensors Group has added a new spring-loaded gage head to its offering.
The GHSx-19 Series LVIT (Linear Variable Inductive Transducer) spring-loaded position sensors are 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.
GHS-19s are offered in nominal full scale ranges from 6.35 to 100 mm (0.25 to 4.0 inches) with excellent resolution and high stroke-to-body-length ratios. The maximum tip contact force on the item being measured is 1 pound.
GHS-19 sensors have a 0.75 inch (19 mm) diameter aluminum or stainless steel body with a 1/2-20 UNF-2A thread 1.5 inches (38 mm) long with two 19 mm (0.75 inch) hex jam nuts for drop-in installation in place of a spring-loaded DC LVDT gage head.
These sensors use a probe equipped with a No. 9 contact tip, and are offered with a PT02-10-6P connector. Operating from a variety of DC voltages, they are available with a choice of one of four analog outputs. They all include Alliance Sensors Group’s proprietary SenSet™ field calibration feature.
