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.
