Product Details Supplier Info More products

RDP Electronics can offer a combination of standard products to provide a configurable, cost-effective system for plotting load versus displacement.

Typical applications include materials testing, lifting platforms and vehicle testing.

By using two RDP E725 signal-conditioning display units, data outputs from a load cell and from a displacement transducer such as an LVDT can be combined to present a graphical display of stress over strain on a standard PC or laptop.

The RS232 output of the E725 connects to a PC used in conjunction with Microsoft Excel-compatible free software.

Designed for use with a range of transducers, including LVDT, strain-gauge and internal inline types, the E725 signal-conditioner and display unit is suitable for applications in manufacturing, process industries, testing and research.

The E725 incorporates signal conditioning for transducers and offers a clear five-digit display, with fast peak and trough detection and limit trips shown by indicator lights, and options such as relay outputs.

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).
