Micro-Epsilon has developed an inductive LVDT gauging sensor suitable for use in medium- to high-volume OEM production environments. The sensor’s small size enables it to be installed in areas where space is tight or restricted.

The Indusensor DTA-XG8 probe — available as either a pneumatic push sensor or as a spring-loaded (feather-touch) gauge sensor — is designed specifically for process automation, machine tools, automated assembly and quality-control applications in industries such as automotive and aerospace.

According to the company, LVDT gauging sensors are primarily used for measuring workpiece geometry such as length, height, width, diameter, thickness and depth. Pneumatic probes, for example, are suitable for use in automatic gauging applications or for accessing details that would be difficult or impossible to reach using conventional spring-loaded (spring-push) probes.

Some materials such as glass or plastic, for example, require low tip forces to prevent deformation of the component being measured, as well as contact tip materials that do not leave marks on the component. As a result, the DTA-XG8 is activated via a feather-touch spring.
