Linear transducers are utilised when you need to measure a distance in a straight line, converting displacement into an electrical signal that is proportional to the amount of displacement.
Linear transducers detect movement by utilising primary and secondary windings with a separate circular core that has been designed to pass through the middle of these windings. The primary winding is driven with an AC supply and as the ferrite passes through this induces a voltage in the secondary windings. Linear transducer displacement can be up to several inches in length and operates as an absolute displacement sensor with repeatable and reproducible results.
Robust and reliable, with high shock and vibration resistance, linear transducers, have been designed to operate in a multitude of demanding environments including intense cold and harsh industry. Their durability means that they are ideal for use in hydraulics, turbines, automation and control and many other applications. One of the primary advantages of a linear transducer is its high precision in dimensional measurements, making them ideal for the electronics and manufacturing industries.
