Subminiature position sensors

  • 27-Dec-2013 09:47 EST

Macro Sensors CD series of subminiature LVDT position sensors features a lightweight, low-mass core, compact 0.375 in diameter, and accuracy necessary for many aerospace applications with tight space and weight restrictions. Ideal for high-response dynamic measurement such as valve position, the devices are used in various pneumatic butterfly valve applications (shut-off valve, fan air valve, wing anti-ice valves) on business jet applications. These AC-operated linear displacement sensors also provide reliable displacement measurement for monitoring fuel/oil level and flight surfaces of airplanes as well as load leveling of artillery platforms and rudder positions of aircraft carriers, tankers, ships, submarines, and UAVs.

Industrial aluminum slabs are typically produced by blending small amounts of copper or manganese in a reservoir of molten aluminum that is rapidly cooled, a process known as direct-chill casting. Variations in the way these elements solidify can yield uneven results that weaken the final product.
