RDP Electronics is advising that many of its standard LVDTs can now be factory modified for higher temperature operation than normal.

Most LVDTs with a range of +/-100mm or less in RDP’s programme of transducers, can be ordered modified during production to operate at upper temperatures of up to 200C.

This capability offers the benefit of using otherwise standard LVDTs in much higher-temperature environments than would normally be the case.

Where significantly higher temperatures are encountered, then RDP offers the LIN and PY ranges suitable for reliable and accurate operation at up to 600C.

LIN transducers are available for measurement ranges from +/-5mm up to +/-25mm and, as well as withstanding extreme high and low temperatures, are also suitable for environments subject to exposure to radiation.

Also widely used in the nuclear industry, as well as in turbines, high-pressure testing chambers such as autoclaves and in research laboratories, are RDP’s PY series transducers.

RDP Electronics – experts in measurement solutions

Measurement experts RDP Electronics Ltd have 45 years experience in developing transducers for a diverse range of applications in research, prototype testing, industrial plant and machinery, or embodied in products. Examples are numerous, spanning industries that include aerospace, automotive, structural engineering and power generation. The company is responsible for the development and manufacture of a comprehensive programmme of transducer products and associated electronics to recognised international standards for accurate and reliable measurement of displacement, load, pressure and torque. Often the best solutions have a simple elegance that is possible thanks in part to the quality and high reliability of the transducers they supply. Because of their knowledge and expertise RDP’s skilled engineering team is frequently invited to propose solutions to measurement challenges.

RDP Design, manufacture and market a wide range of LVDT and other displacement transducers. LVDT Displacement transducers accurately measure position and displacement. The strength of the LVDT is in its principle of operation. As LVDT sensors are inductive, there is no electrical connection across the sensing element ensuring clean data and a long life.

The LVDT operation principle lends itself to use in extreme environments. LVDTs can be made to work submerged in sea water, in temperatures of 600°C (1100°F) in high nuclear ratiation and at pressures of up to 2000bar (30,000psi).
