FAQs About LVDT:
LVDT converts a position or linear displacement from a mechanical reference (zero or null position) into a proportional electrical signal containing phase (for direction) and amplitude (for distance) information. This system simplifies communication between position and distance sensors. In the form of a VSM, one unit can send information from zero to millions of the least significant bits. A conventional sensor provides information in the form of electrical pulses or voltages to a PC-based processing unit. LVDT is easier to create and distribute since electrical pulses are not needed to report the position of a button or light source. LVDT is a method used to control one or more drive units that may include a human or motor.
Electrical Components Modifying LVDT Signal You can change the linear displacement from a zero position to a position or linear displacement from a null position to a position or linear displacement from a position to a position. As a result, the power may be significantly altered, which means you can increase or decrease the current and voltage by the inverse of the displacement, or you can increase or decrease the voltage by the inverse of the position. You can also have the LVDT monitor and respond to a force applied by the LVDT. This enables it to provide additional, and potentially useful information. Or alternatively, the LVDT can be connected to a motor and use the force and the displacement to control the motor.
The series connected voltagemeter is basically made up of a potentiometer (essentially a knob that has holes on its ends and a pivot point) which is connected to a pulse generated by a permanent magnet. If you hold down the on/off button on the potentiometer, a circuit forms that sends an alternating current through the high resistance section of the potentiometer’s terminals. This causes the magnetic dipole in the permanent magnet to be in a high (positive) direction. When the oscillation stops, the rotation is also stopped. The LVDT shows the positive high and negative low together. If you put a 1 meter long 0.
The LVDT is a type of true damped linear encoder which provides analog signals that are both continuous and robust. It’s simple, reliable, and easy to read. It’s ideal for products with a lot of exposure to high voltages, corrosion, and harsh environments. Remember to check out the linear encoder tables in our Linear Encoders database for more information on linear encoders and the NVDT Protocol.
