Linear position sensors gain preference in industrial process control applications

Today’s industrial process control applications increasingly use automated systems to optimize operations and ensure a safer, more productive process.

Today’s industrial process control applications increasingly use automated systems to optimize operations and ensure a safer, more productive process. Linear position sensors—often known as linear variable differential transformers (LVDTs)—used in these automated systems provide machine controllers with highly accurate feedback on product parameters, control states and outputs. Whether implemented as a stand-alone component, or as part of a control or safety system, the LVDT is also capable of providing highly accurate and reliable linear displacement measurements from micro inches to several feet under various operating and environmental conditions. Essentially, the LVDT plays an important
